  • Good news everyone. We've added captions! Of course you'll need to read them in a heavy French accent to get the proper feel for them.

    • What about the need for great doctors that increase the amount of red bloodcells in your blood? Isn't that of main importance? Or devices that keep you from dying in your sleep?

  • Yeah yeah, that's fascinating and all, but if you have a couple of little motors hidden in your bike frame helping you along, as well as, I dunno, some kind of haemoglobin booster, or even testosterone, in your bloodstream, well then, y'know, none of the normal physical or mental limitations apply. Vive l'honour. Vive la dignité. Vive le sport 🌻

  • Road Cycling along with professional psychological help cured me from a very severe depression. My health and fitness dramatically improved, not to mention my professional achievements and personal sense of worth, even my face and my body shape drastically changed and I improved my social interactions and feeling of bellonging because I found what I can call a second family: group of cyclist whose biggest principle is help your team mates at all costs. Cycling is such a beautiful sport

  • Brilliant video. FRlift's algorithm will know I'm interested in cycling videos, but presumably has picked now to recommend this to me, due to the delayed Tour. You 'forgot' to mention the naughty stuff that of course doesn't happen any more. And as a spectator you'll find the peloton race past you before you know it. Best get there early to catch the caravan publicitaire!

  • Excellent video. I love cycling, however I don't understand how people can watch cycling races. It's plain boring. It's like watching a cook how he cooks.
