I don't know if I should be especially pleased that someone finds it difficult to hate me, or horrified to know that people are actually surprised when they realize that they aren't inspired to strong feelings of dislike and loathing towards me. I'll take what I can get right now.
Who's excited for the Vuelta?!
PS. I'm excited for the Vuelta, too! But also a bit melancholy, for the season is ending. If I could follow any one race in a team car, just for fun, it would be Lombardia on a bright, sunny day.
Anyway, the video interview is referenced below. I haven't watched it in its entirety, but I feel like I was as honest and open as I could be, and I went a bit deeper in explaining the psychology of the attraction to sport and the susceptibility to doping of an athlete who might be subconsciously worrying about things not connected to cycling.
I recognize there will always be trolls, unfortunately, but I'm not interested in being lured into an argument for the sake of the person trying to incite the exchange. So you can make inappropriate comments if you want after watching the video, but hopefully anyone doing so is flat-out ignored by the posters who are actually interested in discussing the topic and how it connects to cycling and relates to doping.
