Sensuele gedachten

Canvas for instance

– Door het lef te tonen niets te willen
– By showing the guts of wanting nothing

Tom Simpson

– Beyond a gentleman’s physical limit for cycling
– Voorbij een gentleman’s fysieke limiet voor fietsen
Wittiness, perseverance, bowler hat and umbrella, World Champion, first British yellow jersey, there was so much more to him than dying on a bald mountain. Major Tom just wouldn’t stop cycling.
