What Do You Eat For Breakfast? | GCN Asks The Pros At The Giro d’Italia


– This is GCN at the Giro d’Italia 2018, and we thought we would ask the riders what they had for breakfast. (crowd cheering) (soft upbeat music) Ryan, I would like to know, what did you have for breakfast today? – I had an omelette and I
had some oats and a banana. – How many eggs in the omelette? – Two. – Porridge and an omelette
and some bread with honey. – Oats, porridge. – What did you have for breakfast? (laughs) – It’s porridge with some omelette. – Weetabix, every day. – Awesome. Think carefully before you
answer, because it is a big deal. What did you eat for breakfast? – I had some white rice, very exciting. I had some raspberries, a
little bit more exciting. – How many raspberries? – A good spoonful, a good
big spoonful, and some oats, two scrambled eggs, and
three little rice cakes. – Pasta. – Really? – I started off with a bread
roll and then came back for a pre-race meal of
pasta and an omelette. – Anything on your pasta, or just plain? – Just cheese and olive oil. – Omelette and some porridge. – How many eggs in your omelette? – Three. – I had a crepe with some
quark cheese along the bottom, spread out, then almond butter
circled around the edge, with homemade granola from the chef, all lined up, pomegranate, blackberries, strawberries, and then honey on top. – That is a breakfast, that is amazing. What was the– – It’s nice. – I have to say, I would be
trying to steal that breakfast. What was the crepe made of? Was it a wheat crepe or was
it special, gluten-free? – It could be buckwheat, I’m
not really sure on that one. – You don’t care. – I don’t really care, the
flour doesn’t really matter. It just has to be a crepe. – As a good Spanish guy,
I had bread with tomato, some omelette, and then some oats, and of course a coffee. – How many eggs in your omelette? – Three, today three. Because it’s a hard stage,
so I have to be ready. – For breakfast, an
omelette and some oatmeal. – How many eggs? – Three. – Okay, Alex, what did
you have for breakfast? – Bircher, bircher muesli and an omelette. – I honestly thought
you said bird (bleep). (laughs) – But our Chef here, Paolo cooked some, cooked, you don’t cook bircher, but makes a really good
bircher, and for me it’s it’s a lot nicer than
the usual pasta or rice. – It is an important question, most important meal of the day. You know, I kept it pretty boring today, just because I wanted to be light, so our nutritionist has this low-res diet that he has us on
occasionally for key stages, and it was rice, yogurt, a bun, and eggs. Very uninteresting. – No, that’s very interesting. You’re the most scientific
answer I’ve had all day. How many eggs? – Two. – I can tell you exactly what I had for breakfast this morning. I had two slices of, like,
semi-high-fiber spelt bread, plain two-egg omelette with mashed
banana, honey on top of it. – In the omelette? – On top of it. – On top of the omelette, you had banana? – Yeah, yeah, I only do sweet breakfasts. – Some porridge, some
pasta, with a little bit of avocado, prosciutto, and omelette. – All mixed together or separate? – No, no, separate. – What did you eat for breakfast today? – An omelette, a bit of porridge,
and a toast with marmalade. – All mixed together or separately? – Oh no, separately, come on. – We just had someone who
put banana in his omelette. – Yeah, that’s weird. – Yeah, how many eggs in your omelette? – Two. – Well, that was fascinating. A lot of very exciting breakfasts, but a common theme, I think, of eggs. If you’d like to see some
