EPO is also naturally produced by the body. So it's not like it's a foreign substance the body has no mechanisms to deal with it.

So it would be expected that the body will return excess levels to normal. And that actually happens fairly quick.

So now the news reports are that Lopez might go back to Astana, while Movistar picks up Aranburu and Izagirre. Also, Soler to UAE.

Seems like lose-lose for Lopez and Movistar. They are losing their most exciting young talent, and unless Astana rebuilds in a serious way, I don't think they can support a GC campaign with the same strength as Movistar.

^ indeed. Also the departure of 2nd sponsor Premier Tech from Astana, and the return of Vino from his short involuntary sabbatical in the wilderness. Astana is going to be a wacky Kazakhi place to be next year.

i like aranburu and his potential. moving to movistar essentially gives them valverde’s replacement. soler to uae gives them another serious support guy for tadej and a viable protected rider (besides brandon) for any weeklong tour or gt pogačar doesn’t ride.

More drama at Movistar, but alas, maybe the end of the Netflix drama.

OUTGOING DS JOSÉ LUIS ARRIETA IS CONSIDERING LEGAL ACTION AGAINST MOVISTAR



https://cyclingtips.com/2021/10/outg...inst-movistar/

Of all the teams in the WorldTour, Movistar endures more political turmoil (and derision) than most,
there’s a good chance the public won’t get to enjoy future seasons of the show for fear that the team might not come across well…

It just gets juicier and rockier for Movistar.

Preferred the first season although seeing the girls was sort of a treat in an otherwise male-dominated show.
The mama bear in me dislikes seeing the crashes, how skinny they are, and how cold they were!!!

In truth, I didn't finish the second season and missed any episodes with the women's team. I thought the first season was pretty dramatic, but by the second season I got tired of the disjointed narrative that focused mostly on the management in the cars. I think because they didn't have the rights to the race footage, they had to tell the stories from the point of view of the guys in the car and the post-race interviews with the riders. That got old.

I agree, I've stalled on watching it too after the first two episodes of season 2. I think you nailed the reasons. However I keep telling myself that I'm going to finish it.

I was afraid it would disappear from Netflix before I finished it so there went my Sunday and Monday. Loved the music, too! Wish I could find the original song in Spanish but so far I've struck out.

HeyItsSara Which episode(s) features the women's team? Is van Vleuten featured prominently? I would tune back in for more background on them and her. AFAIK, the women's team doesn't have the horrible drama that the men's team has suffered, but maybe I just don't know..

I don't know that there is a Spanish version. On the episodes I've watched the theme song is always been english. But you have to listen closely and know the words to realize it sometimes.

It's a Spanish song translated for the show. I would like to hear the original.

Why do you think that. I thought Tom Rosenthal wrote and sung it. It was originally used in some German film. Might be mistaken.

It's pretty obvious that it's sung by people whose first language is not English

Really? How does that make it a Spanish song translated for the show?

You might better stop and read the credits for Least Expected Day. Tom Rosenthal is the theme composer and I believe that is him singing it. He is English. It's just his style of vocalization that makes it sound like it's not his native tongue I suppose.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Le...star_Team_2019

I can give you a youtube of him with Spanish subtitles...

I'm not trying to claim I'm right. However I searched for it when the first season came out, I was somewhat of your opinion too that there must be a Spanish version. However I've never found one and everything points to Tom Rosenthal. And he isn't Spanish.

Well if you ever find it, then let us know the link. I too wonder what it sounds like in Spanish.

This is Voy Solo, but I don't think this is what you want. I'm not entirely certain it's Spanish

thank you for replying. It's a cute little ditty but I don't think it's related to the theme song at all.

One has to wonder why the sponsors continue to throw money at that operation. Alternately, why any Latin market would hire an Anglo Saxon marketer.

Maybe they're making money from it? I have no clue what they make licensing the material to Netflix. And Movistar is a streaming service in Spain, after all.
