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!

    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.

    ***Light spoilers***

    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.
