pugdog said:To quote what he himself says, if it's raining he won't train, unless it rains four days in a row, in which case he might use the trainer. He likes croissants for breakfast, so he'll have half a dozen of them if he wants.
He really doesn't like physical contact in the peloton, so he stays right at the back with the result that he is almost always caught out if there are echelons formed. I believe it was Cyril Guimard who said Moncoutié has one of the biggest 'motors' in cycling today. It shows, when he decides to ride hard he usually does very well. He even came 5th in a TT I believe, though it had some climbs. can't remember which race it was or when. Sorry.
thats excellent I love it
