The head honcho at Saunier Duval is a man who knows a little bit about cycling - he was a pro for 17 seasons, rode for 9 teams and won 17 races, including The Tour of Britain, LBL, the Amstel Gold, and came oh so close to a Worlds win in Lugano in 96 - only a rampant Museeuw denied him. Doing his best to ignore the brace of constantly ringing cell phones he totes (one for personal calls and one for business calls) he settled down with a tonic water to answer our questions.
They’ve got the big-time GC guys, the mountain goats and the chrono-men; yeah, yeah – but have they got a sprinter? He’s tall, good looking, has the bracelets, the big watch, the stubble, doesn’t like hills and last year he cracked the big league with a Vuelta stage win; meet Francisco Jose Ventoso Alberdi.
