UPDATED: Vacansoleil Fastman Borut Bozic

The long and the short of it: Borut Bozic, who last year won a stage in the Vuelta for Vacansoleil and finished third in Paris - Tours, once kicked my ass across the length of Cuba (in 2006), including on the last stage where he embarrassed me in front of my wife! Even still, we became fast friends, and BB graciously gave this interview, which appears on Pez. He's a super-interesting character and he speaks frankly...and when given the chance to dis' VINO, he declines! Ugh! That's right - not everyone in the ProTour hates Vino!

Seriously though, check out the interview - it's really good.

UPDATED: VeloResults UK takes an interest in Bozic, and reprints the interview here, with a fresher selection of pictures! And if you like what you read, and want to learn more about Bozic and his Vacansoleil team, visit their Fan Club, here!


  1. Great interview. Thanks. Any thoughts on the rider's chances to win another Vuelta stage?

  2. Thanks, Anon. Unfortunately, Borut's chances of winning another Vuelta stage this year are nil, as his team was not invited to the Spanish tour this season. :(
