An interview with Laurent Brochard FROM cyclingnews.comandy02

CN: What do you think about the UCI's decision about wearing helmets?

LB: I really would like to give my point of view. My team, Ag2r-Prévoyance, is a French insurance company, so we have been ordered to stay quiet about this. However, I think helmets are not really suitable, especially with the heat. I think an agreement needs to be made to make it more acceptable. We are professionals. We are aware that cycling is a dangerous sport but such things shouldn't be imposed on us.

CN: What is the origin of your passion for Marsupilami, the French comic book character, which you often wear on you?

LB: I am a comic book fan. When I first saw this character I was excited because it has some aspects of my character. It was also original. It is true that it is now more famous than few years ago. But for me, it is a kind of lucky charm.

... who are comlaining about the helmet rule - a la Durand's goofy antics. I know Pantani was complaining a bit too, but it seems like the French racers just have to wine about everything.

No offense intended to the general French poplulation!
