Use your legs

That’s a good one about Rod Ellingworth, Race Coach at Team Sky. True spirit of Mannschaftsleitung:

… and Geraint fell off on one of the descents. He slid down the road on his hands. Took all the skin off, he did. And the next morning he turns up for breakfast, with his hands covered in bandages. He wasn’t  wearing his racing kit. So I said, ‘Geraint, where’s your kit?’ and he looks at me blankly, says nothing. I said, ‘Come on Geraint, you don’t cycle with your fucking hands, do you? You use your legs! Get your kit on!’

(Richard Moore, Sky’s the Limit, Harper Collins 2012, p. 226)
