Like a couple of hoodlums collecting protection money?!! Class.
1996 Paris Roubaix, Glory for Mapei.
Can’t help thinking of the theme to the ‘Dukes of Hazard’ whenever I see this photo?!
Happy Birthday Arnaud Tournant, 34 today!
58.875 seconds for the Kilo, frightening!!!
Hope you manage to get that watch fixed!
Hey! Wheres mine?
Oh dear, it’s gonna be a wet one!
I think Spartacus might be glad he’s watching this one at home?!
Fantastically dated documentary,
The Quick-Step express keeps rollin’ on!
Big Tom takes Flanders today. Pippo’s disappointment at failing to attack more vigorously on the Paterberg is pretty obvious. There was a couple of seconds where he had Boonen in a spot of bother and should have made an almighty dig. Even if you don’t eventually win, it’s far better to try?!
Attendance record for Big George.
As always, Prolly is the benchmark!
Click the picture to read and watch. What a lovely bloke!
There was a talented cyclist who happened to be born at the same time as Eddy Merckx. Like so many others, the cyclist spent the best years of his career trying to be beat Merckx but was constantly frustrated. Time and again he knew he was in perfect form, time and again The Cannibal defeated him. When he died, the pro went to heaven and was greeted by St Peter. The saint put him on the start line of a race on the smoothest velodrome he had ever seen, on the finest handbuilt Italian frame. All the greats who had predeceased him were on the start line: Fausto Coppi, Maurice Garin, Ottavio Bottecchia and so on, but, even so, our cyclist knew he could win. He rode the perfect race, timed his effort just right, and had victory in the bag on the final lap. As the line approached, however, he sensed a wheel coming past, glanced to the side and saw the face of The Cannibal. Afterwards, in a state of some distress, the cyclist went up to St Peter and said, ‘Eddy isn’t dead yet, what’s he doing here? St Peter replied gravely: ‘That wasn’t Merckx. It was God. He likes to pretend he’s Merckx.’
