Pillars of French Cycling


Time, Look, TVT, FDJ, Europcar, Hinault, Fignon, Bobet, Anquetil, Paris-Roubaix, Tour de France, Hutchinson...

The cycling world can thank the French for panache, the perfect word to describe French style. If it sounds a tad on the pretentious side, perhaps it is. I'm grateful for the French contribution to cycling forever evolving, changing and staying the same.

Here's a wonderful video from Peloton, in fact, there's a Canadian element. Two of my favorite riders; Dominique Rollin (FDJ) and David Veilleux (Europcar) are here on their careful preparation and aftermath of last year's Paris-Roubaix.

Vive le France!
