Thibaut Pinot cracked a severe update after certain reactions to his previous tweet published in the wake of Rafael Nadal’s coronation at Roland-Garros.
Between tennis players and cyclists, war is about to be declared. Consequence of the reactions of some runners following the triumph of Rafael Nadal on clay at Roland-Garros and especially his massive use of infiltrations to overcome the chronic pain in his left foot. ” Today’s heroes “he wrote in reaction to a passage from the Spaniard’s press conference during which he explained to former player Barbara Schett, that “ it was better that you didn’t know. »
I have my beliefs
The reflection was clearly not to the taste of the player Jonathan Eysseric. “The sadness of this tweet”, he replied. What in turn to react the leader of the FDJ, who split a long response to his compatriot. ” Why ? Because I have my convictions, a way of seeing sport and sports performance differently than yours may be?

It’s been hard but I’m proud of it

We see too many athletes using this kind of practice in recent weeks. I almost lost two years of surely the most beautiful careers to take care of my back, it was difficult but I am proud of it today.

If we’re sick or injured, we don’t run
Thibaut Pinot is not the only one to have regretted the use of infiltrations. ” What Nadal did would have been impossible on the bike, and I find that normal. If we are sick or injured, we don’t run, we don’t compete, that seems like common sense to me. And in addition, drugs and even more infiltrations do not only have a healing effect, it can certainly have effects on performance or be diverted to improve performance, so it seems very limited to me “, thus explained Guillaume Martin in the columns of The Team.
