Maybe you are right, but the road is for everybody, and he allowed Remco to train normally. If you have the legs to follow Remco I think is difficult not try. Remco should take these situations with best humour, and more when he use to attack another pros training.Idiots should leave the pros alone when uninvited.
The pavement is also for everybody, but we call it stalking when you follow someone similarly closely.Maybe you are right, but the road is for everybody, and he allowed Remco to train normally.

I dont agree. Other question if the riders tell yoy thet dont like...you must be polite, but it is not ilegal to follow anybody on your bike.The pavement is also for everybody, but we call it stalking when you follow someone similarly closely.
I don't see what Remco did that was so unbecoming. He didn't yell and curse at the guy, but just said "stop." The guy was on his wheel too long and clearly bothering him, which I can understand, because, on a climb, when one is training alone, one doesn't like someone sitting on one's wheel, period. Let alone the World Champion, who is following a rigorous schedule, and not just some Joe Shmoe out for a ride, but a highly visible public figure. Sure, the roads are public too, but you should know when to back off and not intrude. It's like Mario Cipollini once said to a rider who decided to tag along to his wheel too long during a training ride: "So, if you were at work, would you like someone uninvited coming into your office and watching you?"Maybe you are right, but the road is for everybody, and he allowed Remco to train normally.

I see both sides. Common courtesy is to not follow a rider and this has to be constant for him so it’s a huge annoyance. If I ever saw a “celebrity” I’d make a point to give them their space. But, the fans are the only reason he’s able to be riding a bike for a living in the first place. They pay the bills of his sponsors and team.Remco is a great rider. It is a best with a hugh potential, but he has to control his nervous to be a real champion.
He did the same with me a week ago when I keep his wheel during an aceleration. "Please man, stop", he told me... I know it not nice to have someone to your wheel to concentrate...for me was funny, but not good for him show that behaviour.
I dont have video as this man has, sorry.
If you saw Scarlett Johansson walk around in the Latin Quarter in Aarhus, would you follow her around for bit? Follow her up close right behind her? For more than ten minutes?Hmm... I understand both sides, I guess. I would also be very tempted to try to follow, if I were to find myself riding alongside a pro.
Obviously but if you're riding a bike you're doing the same activity as the pro and it's not illegal - it's even normal - to try to follow someone who rides past you. But I do understand why it's annoying, especially if it happens often (I haven't seen the video by the way).That's not the interesting question. Rather, would you consider it creepy? Over the line? Invasion of privacy and illegitimate disturbance of work?
The idiots on the road are clearly disturbing the work of Evenepoel.
So you would follow ScarJo until the moment she told you to stop?I don't think anybody did anything wrong here. The guy had some fun trying to keep Remco pace for a bit. Remco allowed him to do that. After a while, Remco asked him to stop and the guy did as he was asked.
Anybody who has been training on roads where a lot of riders train knows that this kind of thing happens a lot. Pros are likely used to strong amateurs trying to hold their wheels whilst training.
I once saw Lasse Norman mixing some candy before going into the movie theatre. Didn't film that, either.If I were following ScarJo or any other celebrity around, I'd at least have the courtesy to not film it/put it online. I once saw a well-known Danish handball player at a public pool, but I saw no reason for me to take pictures of his behind (granted, I would probably also have been expelled if I had tried).
