Der var man mere overladt til sig selv, og folk var lidt ligeglade, hvad man lavede, bare man præsterede. I perioder rendte man rundt som en høne uden hoved. Det hele foregik i Holland, og jeg stod i Italien og var overladt til mig selv.

-There is something about Bjarne [Riis, red.]. It is a kind of an awe. You don't want to disappoint Bjarne. You appreciate it, when he praises you, and you listen to him, when there is critic, and then you'll try to do better. It wasn't like that at all at Rabobank. There you was more on your own, and people didn't care what you did, as long as you performed [well, red.]. At times you ran around like a chicken without its head. Everything took place in Holland, and I stood in Italy and was left alone.

I think I already read that article two days ago on a Dutch site. But with his injuries Breschel was never going to have a stellar year this season. He can't blame Rabobank for that.

I also don't believe in these Riis hocus pocus stories...

I've never noticed this vid just while ago. Do somebody know in more detail, who he got angry at? Just only at French TV comment that people booed on him and CSC leading Lance? Or was there something more beyond it?

He chased after Jan Ullrich during a Tour stage. He was working for his teamleader Ivan Basso.

Ok, thanks for post. A bit surprised French liked Ullrich so much.

he refers to "mainly germans", that's what he is saying in the beginning of the clip at least
