"I SAY MOVE TO BELGIUM AND RACE EVERY DAY, OR GET HIGH AND DON'T TRAIN AT ALL…"

“Good health is bad for a bike racer. If you are healthy, you aren’t training hard enough. Healthy, wealthy, and wise is for ambassadors and Republican presidents, not bike racers. You need to be sick, poor, and stupid.

“Coaches are constantly telling athletes to train low and sleep high. I say move to Belgium and race every day, or get high and don’t train at all.”

TRAINING ADVICE FROM BOB ROLL

"I JUST DID IT MY RHYTHM, HIT 'EM BIG RING, AND SPRINTED UP AND CLOSED THE GAP…"

THOR IN AN @ITVCYCLING INTERVIEW:

"I REALLY HAD TO FIGHT AND I WENT SO SO DEEP TO STAY WITH THE CLIMBERS UP THERE, BUT I’M REALLY HAPPY I MANAGED TO BE THERE AND KEEP THE YELLOW JERSEY.

"THERE WAS A MOMENT ON THE STEEPEST PART JUST BEFORE IT GOT FLAT THAT I STARTED TO LOSE A FEW METRES BUT I JUST DID IT MY RHYTHM, HIT ‘EM BIG RING, AND SPRINTED UP AND CLOSED THE GAP.

"THAT WAS THE BIGGEST EFFORT OF THE DAY AND I HAD NO CHANCE TO PASS AND DO THE SPRINT."

WASN’T EVEN FUCKING KIDDING ABOUT CONTESTING THE SPRINT? AWESOME.

THANKS TO @DUBTAP FOR THE SPOT.

A TRUE CYCLIST SOMETIMES HAS TO BITE THE DUST BEFORE HE CAN REACH THE STARS…

MY CAREER SAW THE END OF THE LAST UNTROUBLED AGE OF BIKE RACING. THE MEN OF THAT ERA STILL LOOKED EACH OTHER IN THE EYE. WE DIDN’T TIPTOE AWAY WHEN THE TIME CAME TO LIGHT THE FUSE: WE PREFERRED ROUSING ANTHEMS TO GENTLE LULLABIES. AND WE DIDN’T MIND GETTING BURNED IF NECESSARY. A TRUE CYCLIST SOMETIMES HAS TO BITE THE DUST BEFORE HE CAN REACH THE STARS. 

LAURENT FIGNON

LAURENT’S AUTOBIOGRAPHY, NOUS ÉTIONS JEUNES ET INSOUCIANTS IS AMAZING. WILLIAM FOTHERINGHAM’S TRANSLATION IS EXCELLENT.
