Tour of Basque Country

Tour of the Basque Country

Episode 1


Should you be wondering what I do during the long sessions of seemingly endless peloton rounds around the countryside, I’ll confess that it is entertaining trying to decide what the hell is the deal with AG2R’s bike shorts. Are they like Lululemon’s yoga pants? Crystal clear? Who knows, it sure looks like we get moon cracks, is there a seam in those pants? WTF? Even Phil Liggett once commented that AG2Rs choice of team uniform was a rather strange presentation. Ah well, we’re still awfully interested in the results….afterall, what else is there to do?


            For one thing we might watch Alberto Contador, but, clear lense yellow glasses aside, aren’t we all over AC? Still waiting for him to prove he can do it without drugs.

Meanwhile, Team Sky seems to offer a leader no matter what race they are in, and it’s never the same guy so there’s going to be one hell of an arm wrestling match come the Tour and I think Cavendish made the right move to leave (accept the push? freefall? oust?)…


I forget, where’s Levi?

I'm a writer, poet, and shaman. I have a BA in philosophy, an MA in Material Culture Studies and I am a full mesa carrying shaman of the Inca tradition with roots in my Celtic ancestry.
