Wasn’t the protest was initiated by French and Belgian teams Lotto and AG2R? Hansen is just sounding off on twitter.i'll be very happy when Adam Hansen retires. it's always the anglophone riders and writers trying to change this sport. they need to learn that this is not their sport, it belongs to Europe, the Italians and Belgians and French. they're very welcome to participate and make a living but they need to f*ck off trying to change traditions. Lance is on his dumb podcast trying to get grand tours changed to two weeks. Adam Hansen doesn't want to ride 260k, a bunch of British and American journalists write articles about wanting to change the whole calendar around every other week. this sport is meant to be a little bit inhumane, grand tours are absolutely supposed to be inhumane. that's what makes it special. otherwise i could just go down and watch the local group ride do their 50 miles every saturday and sprint for stop signs.
Legend says it was pillar of the empire Thomas De Gendt himself that sent those gunboats charging down O’Connell street.
