Kings and heros
I've been thinking, and it was whilst listening to the dulcet tones of Dave Harmon and King Kelly on Eurosport that it occured to me. We as cycling fans shower so much love and attention on the faoreign riders and heros of past and present. Why? we have a legend living in Ireland who supassed so many of the euro riders. He won so much and excelled at putting others in the hurt locker. He didnt win just the easy races either. We're talking Paris-Roubaix twice, Milan-San Remo twice and liege Bastonge Liege twice and many mnay more. This is a true cyling great. True, he didnt win the Yellow jersey 7 times. but he suffered and won some mighty hard races.
Lets hear it for our own living god.
