Netflix - Inside the Movistar Team 2019
If you have Netflix there is a season with the above title starting on Friday (tomorrow)
I think it’s subtitled but looks very interesting

If it was true to the 2019 Movistar team ethos, part one would be on Netflix, part two on Amazon Prime and part three on Hulu.
Is it a documentary on social distancing?
“Road racing was over and the UCI had banned my riding positions on the track, so it was like ‘Jings, crivvens, help ma Boab, what do I do now? I know, I’ll go away and be depressed for 10 years’.”
The Vikings are coming!
Legend. Thanks for the heads up
Awesome! Thanks for the heads up.

I binged watched this today. The 6 episodes aren't long - less than 30 minutes each.
Now I've seen most of the behind the scenes documentaries - Overcoming, Chasing Legends, Clean Spirit, Backstage Pass etc. But this is the best of them, It doesn't gloss over their problems, they're the general theme of the show. The last three episodes are basically a comedy.
Everything you imagined about Movistar and more.
Valverde: Diplomatic and enjoying himself. I enjoyed him saying he didn't like the dope testers turning up at 6.30 as he'd got up at 4 and 6 for a pee. I related to that middle age issue.
Landa: Clearly not a leader, and while loyal not a man to drop back to help
Quintana: Seems to exist in a Quintana bubble with Colombian adoration
DSs: General earache and ineffectiveness
Carapaz: Quietly ruthless
Amador: General air of 'why am I with these idiots'. Future DS
Soler: A lot of ego there
Unzue: A nice man. Too nice maybe
Plus 1 on the binge watch, tonight. Interesting to see. Have come away with impression of highly paid individual bikers and amateur management. Need a Ferguson type or dare I say Brailsford type in there and get it sorted.
i am watching it on a rationed basis but so far I am enjoying it.
