Yeah it's weird. I completely agree with him, but I agree with him for many of the reasons for which I also dislike his team. Like yeah Sir Brailsford, maybe teams should indeed stop signing guys who could win lots of races but are instead all stockpiled in one team for one race, because that's the only race the teams care about. But first let's think of who actually does that.Brailsford has always lacked self-awareness, so this statement should be no surprise. Still, quite funny to see the man who set up a cycling team with the sole objective of winning the Tour, and for about five years act as if he didn't care about any other race, now say that cycling depends too much on the Tour de France (!).
Cycling should modernise its business model to end its reliance on the Tour de France in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic, says Sir Dave Brailsford.www.bbc.co.uk
