Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

A book about Lance, written by LeQuippe writers? They only speak th truth, I'll have to pick up a copy.

*Disclaimer* The above comment was intended to be sarcastic. It's a shame I have to put a disclamer, but BF, apparently has enough morons who don't recognize sarcasm when they see it.*Disclaimer*

I was convinced Euro had either been hit by a Lorry or had moved to Tibet to acheive true bike racing Zen with the Dhali Lhama. Damn.
