    Paco interviewed in Procycling (this month), comes across as a very level headed guy. No airs or graces.

    Fuentes case has obviously been hard on him.

    It´s very sad because he was still very young, but it´s hard to say what´s sad with all this happening...

    You said he seemed to be a level-headed guy. Maybe he just decided to

    In the recent Pro interview, he talks about life where he grew up (El Barraco)
    and the surrounding region.
    He grew up with Jose Maria Jimenez, Roberto Heras, Carlos Sastre, Pablo Lastras
    and Jesus Hernandez.

    Comes across as a very humble, quiet man.

    What I wanted to say is that maybe he just packed his bags before it got real, REAL ugly...

    After all, he knows more about it than us.

    I really like Paco because he doesn't talk shit and a lot of people overlook his ability. I did enjoy his procycling interview. He would start talking on tangents and it was most entertaining. I wonder if the chef will poor the Paco Mancebo wine down the drain.

    Yeah, the 1lb steaks in the interview sound pretty good too.

    And Paco had some kind words for VDB.

    I hope his decision to retire isn't final.

    I loved his story about VDB. Shame he has gone off the rails too. His region looks very nice and rugged. A bit like Scotland!!!!

    It isn't.

    From Cycling News:

    Since he returned to Spain, he has reconsidered pulling out of cycling for good, but either way his future will not be with AG2R
