The Independent heeft een interview met Pete’s dochter Emma. Het interview richt zich vooral op haar voorliefde voor de Tour de France.
“Things first really got hot between me and the men in shorts one July – it must have been around 2003 – during a proper French heatwave. On holiday with my dad in the South of France, trying to shelter indoors, I discovered he’d paid for all the TV channels. What kind of man buys all the sports channels, when he doesn’t really watch sport? I’ll tell you: the kind who wants his kids to spend the holiday making up jokes about how they’ve just seen a line of men in bright Lycra cycle past the oldest thatched church in France“, aldus Emma.
