Pogi's papers are being peer-reviewed by the old masters and he's getting praised!

"He wins in the spring, he wins in the summer, he wins at the end of the season," lists the 69-year-old, five time Maillot Jaune winner. "He's the one who is closest to us, honestly. He attacks, he has fun, he's happy."


Nothing new. The reason why "there can be only one" at UAE.

Pog just needs a Paris Roubaix win and another Liege win in a snowstorm and he can relax.

The Badger is full of sheet in this regard, because playing the "sport is just a game" card suited him well, only because the nation and establishment were on his side, whilst drinking a beer in a post-stage interview to an incredulous Lemond saying it's not settled until the TT. And then he got his arse handed to him despite Greg hitting the tarmac. Hinault should have said sport is just a "head-game" and the more devious you are with the system behind you, the more you get away with in return. Until hubris catches up with you.

...and willingness to throw it out there, risking the loss!
I would say this can fall under "do or die attitude".

Or as Merckx put it in the 2023 interview for Dèrniere Heure:

“When he goes for it, you can see he’s not thinking about the consequences. He doesn’t ask himself any questions. That’s real cycling, the kind that people love. Tadej is an exceptional rider and if he wants, he’s going to have an enormous palmares.”
