I don't care much for Kopp. A few years ago his DS spent most of the race yelling at him throught the radio from the team car during Paris-Roubaix. He never answered.
At the end of the race, it turned out instead of the radio he'd ridden with an iPod...He said he just "went with the music" and cruised through the race.
How professional of him.
the truth. said:i would so rather listen to some tunes than race around northern france with the shouts and bawls of a DS who has 9 positive tests returns at Gerolsteiner alone. i take it your talking about Rolf Gölz who was in team car 1 that day.
