I read this interview yesterday and I keep thinking about it.
Michael Ball is the owner of Rock & Republic clothing. In Chris Horner's interview on Pez he says that he nearly signed with Rock and liked what Michael Ball was doing. They have some big names coming next year such as Victor Hugo Pena, Freddy Rodrigues, and Santiago Botero. He has Frankie Andreu as a director.
I have a few questions? Is it me, or does he sound like a jerk in the interview to others as well?
Is this an accurate portrayal of Ball? Maybe it was a bad day for him?
How did he get such good riders to sign? Why would riders like Horner considering riding for him? What is he doing that is innovative? Throwing money at a team is not innovative?
I'd really like to know what others think. I want to cheer for upcoming teams that are building the sport of cycling, but I'm finding it hard to wish this team success.
