Grieve Le Tour

The Tour used to be a race for hard men. Only a few finished, and even then just barely. There were no team radios, heart rate monitors, team masseurs or spandex. Hell, there wasn't even refreshment stations, riders just ran into stores and snatched things off the shelves. Instead of grabbing some wonder supplement before a climb they sparked up cigarettes and pounded beers. The spirit of the original tour is long since dead. The Tour is dead. Grieve Le Tour

1962.
