There are no gifts in cycling. Right?
Professional cycling is a peculiar sport. It’s full of unwritten rules and gentlemen’s agreements passed down through generations.
There is an imaginary statute dictating how a rider or a team, particularly in the men’s peloton, is supposed to behave in a certain situation.
Or so we’re led to believe.
The only problem is that nobody can agree on what these rules are and how they should be followed. They seek to hold riders to a complex standard that sees them vilified if they breach these arbitrary regulations.
