Quick-Step's Brian Holm on podium girls

Brian Holm interviewed by Norway's state TV, NRK

No podium girls at the Vuelta is Norway's fault as they're not at the Worlds in September and are behind the trend. Apparently the Swedes could not be responsible for this as they are idiots and don't even have a cycle race. Norway is like Saudi Arabia where women should wear a burka.

He also said, "Nordmennene er noen drittsekker." - modesty prevents translation ... Google at your own peril! :D

I await a response from the Swedish Cycling Federation!
