On the Day…

… Lance Armstrong lost all his cycling honours, I think this is a fitting comment:

Cycleracing needs to get slower, just like this tired old watch I found in a fleamarket last Saturday. It needs less hi-tech, the equivalent of a selfwinding mechanical movement will do fine. It doesn´t need big money, again just like this watch: I paid 3 Euros for it.

If that is achieved, the Maillot Jaune will become what it never was but always should have been.

      Hi Vladimir,
      interesting addition, thanks. Pontiac watches were very common in the BeNeLux area from the thirties I have been told.
