I can't imagine given the level he achieved and when he was racing that he made even all that good of an income at the time. I imagine he's made his living as a journalist and commentator for the last decade or so.ajoc_prez said:OK, so I know he commentates for the TDF, but what else does he do? Anybody know? Did he make enuf from his cycling career to kick back and relax like Lance?
Saw an interview a while back with k.d. lang where she mentioned that it kinda sucks when you're famous, but don't really make that much money. I wonder if that's not the situation Bob Roll is in?mohair_chair said:He's Bob Roll. That's what he does for a living.

Even if he's dirt poor... He can show to ANY group ride in the country and get a free meal and a place to crash for the night.
He's a consultant.ajoc_prez said:OK, so I know he commentates for the TDF, but what else does he do? Anybody know? Did he make enuf from his cycling career to kick back and relax like Lance?
It's funny you mention that. My wife is extremely pissed that it seems Bobke has learned how to pronounce names, places, and landmarks in France. I don't know if it was part of a Vs. agreement that allows him to do commentary for the full night show, but he sure seems to have improved his language skills.smartyiak said:He goes around and teaches people every SINGLE way to murder the French language.
