Wolverine nickname being taken literally as a joke.

It looks almost as if he found some roadkill and decided to wear it as a wig.

He's got a nickname the "Wolverine"?  Where did you hear this?  As usual I am behind, maybe in France the sports guys have not heard about this serious labelling change.  Given that I am from Michigan, I take a serious interest in this alleged nickname.  In French a wolverine can be a "glutton", but the actual animal is a carcajou.  Apparently.  But I never have noticed this word being used, I now know it and might hear it.

I think it is stunning what can be done with Photoshop.  I also figure that Pete is trying to restrain himself from being "one of the lads" publicly, and trying to "behave" and cool things down a bit.  Maybe a bit of hair, maybe a joke signature of the photo finish with Trentin that the French TV offered him without warning, a bit of borderline bad taste I thought.  He is a bit of a "messing about" lad.  I wonder if Tour in its mightiness will simply exterminate such tendencies.  I secretly hope Sagan can behave badly forever.  He is, after all, the best green jersey rider on earth, and looks to carry on like that forever, so far.

His custom paint job on the Canondale is of a Wolverine.. but i don't think its linked to the animal, more to the Marvel comics character Wink

Thanks for the catchup guys.  I get it.  I've read the comic and seen the movie.  I had the idea it was something related to "badger, eagle, lion" rather than something much more appropriate to Peter and his heroes and images.  Hard for me to think otherwise.  Especially since I went to University of Michigan as well.

So are people in English calling him this on TV?  In the papers?

It sounds like a nickname given by himself to himself.

Yes he has a girlfriend now, living together in Monaco.

It's reason why he hasn't been winning (in my view), cos he has had to balance training with treating her right Very Happy
