hotel torino


today we all rest. i did a few hours in a volvo. through the mont blanc tunnel and made it to aosta, italia. here i am at the bar in hotel torino. writing for cykelmagasinet.dk and uploading pictures. besides drinking pastis in the sun in a white shirt and black leather shoes. and a suit. a guy from napoli came and asked me for a cigarette at a cafeteria around noon. he later told me, that he used to be a dj at strip clubs in milano and napoli. but theres no strip clubs to be found in aosta. we agreed to meet later for a drink.

russian victory



too quick?


anonymous quick step rider after todays stage. on his way to the team bus, he told me, that going down wasnt the most devastating part of a crash. getting up was much worse. i didnt have a clue what he meant, so i just firred my canon a few times.

copster


and uncounted amount of serious men doing their job. in briancon.

'interdit' he yelled and crossed his arms. i ignored him since that is my weapon of choice when i meet the cops.

'interdit' he screamed and blew his whistle. with ringing tinnitus i moved forward and realized that he hadnt even seen me.

i stumbled over the fence to get to the astana bus, where the woman in high heels, striped dress and sweet fumes was trying to flirt an astana cap from a soigneur.

she still wears that cap when i visit her in copenhagen.

a straight line


dauphiné libéré 2009 - rehearsing for the tour - i went in a small car to the town of briancon. i went with a woman dressed up in high heels, a red striped dress and sweet fumes.

with blue mountains in the mirrors of a very small car, we almost flew back to lyon and a hotel room.
