Small Talk interviews Cadel Evans and he doesn’t like Belkin

i’ve had a bit of a soft spot for Cad Bloody El! Evans ever since he made Vinokourov cry over the white mud of the Strade Bianche on Stage 7 of the 2010 Giro.

go to about 1’04 on this video here to see Evans resplendent and filthy in the Rainbow, reminding people just what the f**k it stands for HOO HA.

and if you haven’t seen this stage before you can thank me later…

a genius ride by the Aussie.

he was recently interviewed by the excellent Small Talk of the Guardian newspaper (crankpunk’s first true love in the journalism world, as it happens).

he chats about pregnancy tests, his dislike of green cycling kits (sorry to Belkin then, but thanks for the misleading title of this post) and, when asked whether he’ll spend his retirement riding around his home town snaffling everyone Strava KOMs, he says:

“I’d rather spend my time riding my bike than talking about riding my bike.”

much unlike the vast majority of ‘cyclists’, then [cough].
