i dunno bout yal, but watching that documentary made me like him even more. Kudos to him and his bro for being radical. Dudes could care less about bike racing, illest.
Then he can not race bikes. This is my point. If he doesn't care, wanted to quit, and doesn't like it then he doesn't have to do it for a living. He can keep making documentaries or doin' whatever he wants but with so few pro contracts out there it seems a bit selfish to just waste a very limited spot.
haha what do you mean 'he can't' ? It's a bit too 'ideal' to believe that the thing you do for a living , 1000% of the time you are like intoit? Heck even my desk job , im like eh about it sometimes, but gotta pay the bills. Not going to BS people whether friends, family, or coworkers (or politely to a manager) at times that it's rough. Seems like he's pretty honest about his feelings and marks to him, he kept going when he thought about quitting. I'd rather listen to this hip dude describing the realities of bike racing and the mental stress, rather than robots reading some script handed to them. It's not as if LM is saying his team is crap and his manager is crap.
i mean i dont know this bro personally, but he seems like if the pro contract dries up, he'd OK with that and just do other stuff that isn't bike racing. Seems like a normal person decision.
All good points, but ultimately isn't it up to the "market" to decide? In other words, his employer (or would be employers)? As long as they keep giving him a contract and paying his salary, who's to say he has to step aside?
yea, it's not like we are giving him the contracts. If another team wants to give him a contract, so be it. If garmin wants to end his contract, so be it. Doesn't seem like LM is stressing.
yal are funny about this thing where he's holding up someone's spot who 'wants it more'. There are plenty of pro dudes who 'want it more' and their not-hipster persona still sucks, who i wish others could take their place in said limelight.
