Apparently this is something Sunweb is doing systematically, sending injured riders into a race to avoid fines.I know the mom of a Sunweb rider personally, she contacts me to talk about him, how he's doing etc every now and then. The team even denied him to get treated for an injury because they are so anal about what chemicals they might get in their body even when a TUE would be the most logical solution. They actually sent the rider knowingly injured into the race, where he had to abandon after +/-70km.
Doesn't matter for you, does it? Evenepoel didn't come out of nowhere and you're convinced he's doped, so spare me your hypocritical reasoning. On the other hand, Quinn Simmons beating climbers uphill is something you applaud.sure Logic. Hindleys out of nowhere progression due to bread and water.
If a rider with such a succesful 2020 is getting kicked i would say that something is definitly wrong.No comments onwh SUNWEB terminated Hirschis contract out of the blue
Word on hte street is they was something suspect that they dont want to have in the team
As cycling news wrote it could be that Iwan Spekenbrink is the problem:If a rider with such a succesful 2020 is getting kicked i would say that something is definitly wrong.
But I will of course not jump to any guesses other than what I already did.
It might be that he simply is a *** to work with.
Hirschi is the fifth high-profile rider to negotiate an early departure from Iwan Spekenbrink's team in recent seasons after Marcel Kittel, Warren Barguil, Tom Dumoulin and Michael Matthews all left the German-registered outfit before the end of their contracts. Hirschi has yet to announce a new team.
I haven't seen the HN story they're referring to, if anyone has a link to it.Hirschi's ex-team-mate Michael Matthews (30), who is also leaving the DSM team, is doing the same. He told the Dutch newspaper Het Niewsblad about massages that lasted half an hour. If he wanted a little longer, that wouldn't work. Why? Because it wasn't in the regulations. The use of ketones - the “miracle drug” that is not on the doping list - is not allowed at DSM either. And plan training camps on your own? No, that doesn't work either.
ID your so-called 'source'.I am just relating what I heard
Wow. History's not your strong suit, is it?Say what you will about Sunweb but they do not throw away an asset if they can make money on it .
Them and your back alley "source", evidently.Only the parties involved know
Ok you can think what you want but I am just relating what I heard
The ridiculous information going round because he refuses to do homework or the length of his massage is just that ...ridiculous smoke screen
You do not terminate a contract with a star for some minor issues nor do you lose the chance to make some money if he kicked up a fuss wanting to go becasue he could get better money elsewhere.You ensure buy out
Say what you will about Sunweb but they do not throw away an asset if they can make money on it . What I heard is Sunweb terminated because of risk
Only the parties involved know but rather than blame Sunweb maybe journalists need to ask questions and look at the facts
