'dont be a fool' he mumbled when he went up a steep climb outside liège.

after the race, in ans - the belgian version of belfast - he called his best friend in ljubjana. he wanted to hear if the dogs were doing well.

mujeres de la vuelta

they hang around in small groups around the finish line. always in groups.

they all look like they are there for a reason.

'to make the race look better' she told me, like she was instructed to.

fuente


ive been fascinated by his name all the way. the fascination starts decades ago, when fuente was the name of a great grimpeur. the sound of his name klings to this rider. to me at least. this day - in 38 degrees celsius i spain. he didnt do as well as he wanted to do. the same scenario was often evolving around josé manuel fuente.

bros annecy


it was with a certain amount of melancholia i rushed back into le tour. i had a car accident in italy, and got stuck there with a broken car and a few bruises. i stayed in a pensione in aosta with my friend johannes. he is a strip club dj and the owner of a wonderful personality.

when i made it back to the race, the riders were preparing themselves for a race on their own. contre le montre.
