Jan Bakelants, most famous for winning the first stage of the 2013 Tour de France and wearing the yellow jersey for a spell, is going to this year’s Tour for AG2R La Mondiale, and he wants everyone to know he’s really horny.

How horny? Consider the following exchange from a recent interview with Belgian rag Het Laatste Nieuws earlier this week (as translated by CyclingNews):

HLN: When will you first call your parents?

JB : “If I’m going through my porno movies. Then they can bring more.”

(Google Translate had that as “load movies.” Gross.) This came right after he said he’d miss his daughter. Bakelants said he was kidding but promptly tripped over his drooling tongue again when asked how he went three weeks without sex. He joked about his load movies again and said, “there are also the podium hostesses.”

Bakelants doubled down later in the interview and said the most important thing to bring to the Tour was “definitely a packet of condoms. You never know where those podium hostesses are hanging out.” Tour organizers demanded an apology, and Bakelants apologized for his “humouristic” interview.

Keep it in your compression shorts, Jan.
