Not a mention of Brad. Doesn't Stokes like to ask difficult questions?
Do you believe in fate, or luck, or destiny?
Good interview that. He's definitely mellowed a bit, and the interview bears that out.
I can't see him getting another 4 TdF stage wins to match Merckx. Love to be proved wrong though.
I don't think anyone (including himself) expected 4 last year.
That's me told then
Kittel is going to come back really strong this year; Cav's admitted himself he's tired after last year; there's lots of decent young ones coming through like Gaviria, Ewan and others; I just think four or five more is going to be a big ask.
I'd be delighted to be proved wrong.
