Cow's Tongue and Fat Soup Quote

by Brad Beven

We raced a World Cup in Russia, and racing there is a little bit different. They put us up in a hotel which was like something out of Batman, some Gothic huge thing [...]. For food they'd bring out a plate with a great, big cow's tongue on it, and nothing else, no veges or anything, just a great, big cow's tongue. Obviously we didn't eat that. We asked what the soup was and they said it was fat soup. It was just great big lumps of lard that obviously they eat in Winter, or give foreigners, one of the two.
