The Belgian Hammer: A Book Review

My latest book review, of Dan Lee's "The Belgian Hammer," has now been posted at Pezcyclingnews.com and you can read it here.

1962 Tour de France

Famed French film director Louis Malle shot the 1962 Tour de France and I have a videotape of the 20 minute (alas, only) result, "Vive le Tour!". Our good friends at Pezcyclingnews.com have found the complete film on-line and I would recommend it highly. I love the scene where the riders dash through a bar and run outside with bottles of beer! And please note that all the riders are wearing spotless white socks, as it should be in racing.
