PEZ sat down to interview Janez Brajkovič at the recent Astana team’s preseason training camp.
He’s won the Dauphiné, placed top 10 at the Tour de France and has a lot to say – from using power meters or feeling in training to the differences between the ‘Bruyneel Astana’ and the ‘Vino Astana’, and even a few words about his ex-boss Lance Armstrong.

Rain, Oxygen and the Kings of Falling Leaves.
I’ve always had nostalgia for the Giro di Lombardia. So much, I even rode the now defunct Gazzetta Challenge Gran Fondo over there with Dr. Brad, back in 2008 – a 140k ride the day after we watched Damiano Cunego solo up San Fermo di Battaglia on his way to victory in the Classic itself.
