I think we need that Kate Wagner to conduct every English interview with him, if we want to get anything remotely useful out of him.
Not that Pogacar did much better though.
I wrote that as a compliment actually, i.e. his "man of few words" persona has become a defining trait & it's part of his mystique. But you're right, Kate Wagner's article was awesome.

Oh, I see the fans trolled TJV. It may look good from close distance, but it just looks grey on long shots and that's what we'll see most of the time.
The jersey actually has the name of fans who purchased it from the store a few months ago printed on it. I guess that's why it looks a bit greyish, i.e. the small white text featuring the thousands of fan names against the black background.
There is, of course, no better way for the enthusiastic layman to participate than to have a go at the CQ Tour de France game, and try to secure a win for your forum over VeloRooms at the same time.

I wonder why teams don`t go more the route of creative coloring their bikes. Surely the team and the sponsors get great publicity if they e.g. go with completely bright blue/pink/orange wheels because you can pick them out from every overhead or far distanced shot.
Sam Bennett had a green chain last year (but that did not particularly stand out in helicopter footage.)

Does anybody know where I can find a list of bonification seconds for this year's Tour. I know there's 10sec, 6 sec and 4sec for 1st, 2nd and 3rd on road stages but are there some climbs that have rewards?
