Sick of answering dumb shit questions 5 times in the one breath because the "reporter" can't think of anything intelligent to ask?

Meanwhile; it's just hilarious how he talks with sportsjournalists:

Probably you're referring during the Tirreno.
I didn't hear that exact interview (3rd or 4th stage) but he acted in similar way like "you saw the race, so you know".
As someone else said, Im a big Sagan fan for the show and effort he puts on the race but he should probably improve a little bit the post race interviews.
On the other hand on other interviews he always sounds either interesting or funny.

There's no such a thing as stupid question. It was pretty legitimate question btw.

Sorry, no link saw it on RAI Sport2 in pre-race broadcast. @Micky maybe it's in RAI archive if you have access?

Now he's trying too hard to create a character, it's becoming annoying.

But the journalist question, if not stupid, is disrespectful to the rider.

Nice week of racing a head with Volta Catalunya, Dwars door Vlaanderen, E3 Harelbeke and Gent - Wevelgem on the program!

Dan Martin pointed this out on Twitter:
"First time I've seen the new @UCI_cycling points system. 3rd on a stage equal to 50th on GC. Further promotes negative racing"

Apparently this is the points you can earn in Catalunya. I understand that a stage win isn't worth as much as a GC, but this is bit absurd.

Kwiato wins a 3-up sprint fair and square minutes after burying himself with Alaphillipe to get onto an attack that no-one else in the peloton could follow or chase down but reading some of the posts here you could be fooled into thinking he'd been sitting on the sofa with his feet up for six hours and only hopped onto his bike for the last 10km so he could mug off the 'real' racers.

Why not appreciate the good instead of going looking for the bad? :noidea:

apparently the Italians forgave Kwiato his two triumphs in two out of three most interesting Italian races* :lol:

*3rd being the Giro, in which Kwiato also had his moments

Winning hearts shouldn't be an excuse for sub-par tactics.

Hilarious to see this team getting awful results with Rolland after trashing his "old school" methods of training

Haha :lol:
I'm seriously wonder if Sep can change the tide for them. But then he has to start riding smarter and avoid stupid flats.
