- The Secret Pro – interesting TDF insight
There’s been much chatter about Cuddles (AKA The Crazy Frog) of late. Asking why he was so very subdued during the Tour, and the inference being he must have been off the sauce now. Not sure I believe that myself. He just looked pale and weak, rather more like some sort of illness than lacking his gogojuice.Posted 4 years agojfletchMember

I read the TSP’s dig at former winners going slow being at people like Contador who are still Top 10 but nothing like the dominating performances of the past. The 2009 Alberto Contador would have beaten Froome.
Cuddles is just old and tired.Posted 4 years agomtbtomoMember
I’m skeptical too. Has too much of the same style of writing that you’d read in a magazine by a journalist. And knowing someone who does a bit of ghost writing, I’m especially doubtful.
Vaguely amusing but none of the real pro’s will be along to confirm or deny the views contained within, so its a fairly safe to publish, genuine or not.Posted 4 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember
In the TdeF post he comments about Belkin’s attack on Valverde coming back to haunt them as people bear grudges, but I’m sure Matt Rendell suggested this was in fact in retaliation for a similar trick Movistar pulled on Belkin in tour de suisse. If this is the case I’d expect a current pro to have known that, what with all the gossip within the peloton?Posted 4 years agochakapingSubscriber
The pieces have apparently been deliberately re-written (or transcribed) to disguise his natural speaking/writing style.
I write and sub-edit for a living and I don’t smell a rat with it.
As the editor points out, why would he risk his reputation by making it all up? There’s honestly not enough to be gained.Posted 4 years ago
