Our latest monthly chat with Edward Pickering, Deputy Editor of Cycle Sport Magazine, and we discuss Sky, the race season so far, Mr. Boasson Hagen and Floyd Landis, international man of mystery.
Oi Pickering! How is getting Boasson Hagen a 'clever signing'? That suggests that they could see something that no one else could. Everyone knows that he's a humungous talent. Singing him would be better described as a coup, since everyone would've wanted him. Sky perhaps had deeper pockets than the rest. They had a year (or longer) to shop around with a blank cheque without worrying about results since the team wasn't starting racing till the beginning of this year, hence the impressive roster. A better example of a clever signing by Sky would be someone like Matt Hayman.
