And while I’m on La Gazzetta Della Bici here is a great find by Simon… just teetering up there on top… so Euro.

Flip up, or down – Jacques Anquetil

I am not a flipper. Seeing photos like this I think I should but why? Why flip? Is it like zipping up when crossing the finish line to highlight sponsors? Is there nothing about it, it’s just something done…. for no reason?

Do you flip? Are you a flipper?

Tom Simpson

Last night I watched the great BBC documentary on Tom SimpsonThe Story of Tom Simpson. He was truly a talented, unique and genial cyclists of all time until his untimely death on Mont Ventoux during the 1967 Tour de France as a result of amphetamines, heat, alcohol, a stomach complaint and exhaustion.

He wore a cap well.
