Oh hey, just some Marianne Vos selfies.
Normally, I really, really hate selfies, but I approve of this one.
After hearing ‘de Ronde’, a song in dutch about the Tour of Flanders, sung by one of the team doctors SerVaaS, André Greipel asked him to make and sing a song together. Now the Tour de France starts, and this is how such a unusual cooperation between a rider and a doctor sounds…
For anyone who ever wondered “can Andre Greipel sing?”.
I’m a big fan of Andre’, but this was a HUGE mistake.
A Miscellany of Le Tour de France - Day 72
1985 Late one night as Bernard Hinault was enjoying a quiet night at home he was disturbed by a knock at the door.

When he refused she began ranting and swearing profusely. Hinault said “I knew she was swearing because I recognized the same words the Dutch cyclists used on the road, usually towards me.” Ooh la la.
