"Better to reign in hell than to serve in heaven."

- Paradise Lost, John Milton (1608-1674).



"Today we are visiting a world that would have been forgotten if one day a bike race hadn't had this crazy idea, once a year, of turning left on the way out from Troisvilles, leaving the civilization of the car to plunge into the meandering history of the Nord.

- Philippe Bouvet, L'Equipe, 2006.
