http://www.boardmanbikes.com/boardman/boardman_Pete_Jacobs.html

 

I've then got to write up an article afterwards. Got any good question ideas?? It can be anything,  topics I've got so far are

 

-General info behind the design of his new bikes

-Working with the ever changing UCI regulations (thanks lama) etc, was it a hindrance when he was GB tech director for the 2008 Olympics? What about now as a manufacturer? Is that why you are focusing on Ironmen??

-What about if people could still use the superman position? In general are UCI regulations holding back necessary innovation to keep cycling constantly evolving or are they ensuring the race remains one between cyclists as opposed to one between manufacturers?

-Thoughts going into London Olympics, something about how shit it is the pursuit is gone, will it attract the same interest with the omnium?

-With the Omnium being more specialised will that signifiy the slow death of track because it makes it much harder for road cyclists to come back to track racing with limited preparation?

-Does he think Sky can ride for Cav and Wiggins at the Tour?

....

 

Any good old racing questions? Anything, anything at all..


- after a career that included a few yellow jerseys and stage wins in the Tour, trouncing folks in the Grand Prix des Nations for 5 minutes and several World Records for the hour and pursuit, does he feel miffed that he never won a Rolex on the Lancashire Road Club's Ramsbottom Rake hillclimb?

- given his form in 1996 at the time of the Ultimate hour record, how much would he have beat his then 25 mile (40km and change) RTTC competition record? How much quicker could he have gone during his decor setting ride given the use of a full aero bike and helmet and gears rather than fixed.

- which was physically hardest - the ultimate hour record on the Lotus bike or beating the "Merckx" record on a plain old' track bike.

So I've been reading a lot about Conconni's involvement with CONI in the early 80's and blood doping, which spanned the years where Moser ended up getting the hour record and winning Giro and Milan San Remo in the same year and ending with Italy taking home a truck load of golds in the winter Olympic endurance events in 92. At the end of that period the likes of Chaippuchi and Roche were found guilty, due to records found, of EPO use and blood doping.

There are "rumours" that Conconni worked with several Italian teams during the 80's.

With that in mind - can any of the old timers name any Carerra riders that went onto achieve great success than they did at Carrera during the period 1980 to 1992?

Sorensen won Liege in 93 with Carrera, and won big races later.

Abdu maybe? Otherwise can't think of any.

Perini. Ghirotto. Bontempi. Visentini. Roche. All their best results were with carrera

I looked it up swampy. We are massive tards. We forgot Tafi, and Pantani. Another one more obscure was Enrico Zaina

Very brave.  I reckon it'll be one of the Brits.

 

Oh, and can we have Dave Grohl for PM.

Well, I did say 1980 to 1992...

... And after 92 blood doping really wasn't that obscure.
