‘Are there cookies?’, Gaimon replies to Cancellara’s invitation to beat him to a race



Fabian Cancellara has taken Giamon’s accusations about having used mechanical doping to win Tour of Flanders and also Paris-Roubaix in 2010, very seriously. That is why, he has decided to challenge American pro rider to a race.


The war of words between two cyclists has just started. However, it is intense and aims to be used as a great tactic to promote his (Cancellara) post-career commercial activities.


He used Twitter to invite Gaimon to race together at one of the eight Chasing Cancellara events planned for next season.


These VIP events offer anyone the chance to take on Cancellara on a limited-time route. The ones who beat him are automatically awarded a ‘Fabian Cancellara Conqueror Certificate’.



Gaimon better start training


Cancellara finished his direct offer by admitting to be curious to see how much watt can Gaimon push. He advised him to start training if he wants to win the race ironically adding the #nomotorneeded hashtag to seal the offer.


However, Gaimon didn’t seem impressed quickly giving his own respond.  He wrote:  “Are there cookies? Bike rides should have cookies”, not saying if he would take up Cancellara’s offer or not.


Soon after the book came out, the Swiss riders’ lawyers demanded Gaimon to apologize and also remove the book from sale. However Gaimon didn’t seem to care about these requests. He claimed that he was simply “repeating a rumor that’s well-documented and many years old.”


“Put a gun to my head and that’s what I believe so I’d be a liar if I left it out. But I claim no revelations or proof, so I don’t see it being ‘taken off the shelves’. Except by the folks buying it”, he added.
