preferably with Nibs and a bunch of frustrated frenchies... and then storm the descent from Col d'Allos (Bardet gained well over a minute on terrified Skyborgs there during Dauphine)Gigs_98 said:I hope he will tell them contador should attack on the tourmalet. I don't think it would work but at least it would be fun to watch
If Sky signed Contador and Froome was his domestique would you begin liking Froome and Sky?LaFlorecita said:Contador apparently has a Riis-clause in his contract (as does Sagan) so this seems like the perfect opportunity for Oleg to discard him.
I agree with you in general about his personality/temperament/whatever you want to call him. However, I agree with him regarding the changes needed for cycling as a business. The current model is doomed for failure eventually, IMO.FoxxyBrown1111 said:"My worst-case scenario is that I stop sponsoring the team and I go and ride my bike at my villa in Forte dei Marmi in Tuscany."
Yes Olga do that. It would be the best scenario for the sport. Long live ASO and fight this arrogant *** until he gives up.
Shame on you Cyclingnews that you give this narcissist a platform for his weekly rants. Would be interesting to know if cyclingnews gets paid for this by her. Otherwise I can´t understand that this site goes to such low standards.
The whole Olga rant:
Hmm could be a good move for him, if Tinkoff improves his climbing squad this winter.SafeBet said:
Because this isnt NBA or NFL or Soccer... Even JV admitted cycling is the cheapest way for sponsors to get max attention. And the sponsor money goes to the riders. Millionares battling it out in mountains, hilly stages, and sprint stages. Its a win win for riders and sponsors. Thats why the model is good and works since ages. Only greedy assholes like Olga are pissed, coz they thought they found another way to make money out of fresh air. Well not here, at least not yet. Shall the basterd go home and use his slaves, but not the great traditional western europe cycling...saganftw said:im surprised that so many ppl are questioning tinkovs plans,can you imagine Manchester united not getting TV money?or real madrid?LA lakers have 3 billion 20 years tv contract
somebody is making a lot of money from advertisment and sure as hell its not the teams - asking for a share of that is absolutely right, just because it wasnt a custom in cycling,it doesnt mean its right and watching Eurosport the other day there was a 2 minute ad every 5 minutes?who is cashing in because it aint teams...
im actually surprised the teams didnt ask for that ages ago
