 Manage the team during the race season. Lot goes into this. I recommend you listen to the interview that Downtime Podcast did with Martin a while back. Will give you tons of context for all the work that goes in behind the scenes of successfully managing a team through a season.

 @seattledad: 100% agree - I will be far more interested in this team now that MW is in charge.

For those that don't know, Martin was responsible for the Honda Team (Minnaar, Brendog and Matti Lehikoinen) back in the early 2000s as well as Aaron Gwin during his Trek and YT years.

The podcast on Downtime is fantastic listening
