Also according to Velonews, Patrick Lefevere, the sporting director of the Quick-Step-Alpha Vinyl team, received a message from Dave Brailsford, the director of the Ineos team, after the world championships. “Yet he doesn’t send manydid he declare. He said: ‘Congratulations, what a champion, and if you want to sell him one day, call me.’. After, you can’t see if someone is joking on Whatsapp. There was no smiley, no special face. just a few words. If Dave wants it, he probably needs a lot of money.”

Then the 67-year-old Belgian leader let the mystery hang in an interview with the Dutch media Het Laatste Nieuws: “In a marriage, if someone is cheated on by their partner, that person involved is always the last to know. I won’t say more about it“, he indicated.
