Frisco

– Mijn plek is hier en wel nu

– My spot is here and right now

Frisco is my local clothingstore and they organise a Spot the Spot contest this weekend for skateboarding, so I offered one of my paintings for a prize. Sunday, I’ll get my longboard out and will watch their spots.

Graeme Obree

– Superman sloopte zijn wasmachine om te fietsen
– Superman demolished his washingmachine for cycling
Graeme Obree is a Scottish racing cyclist and former bicycle messenger who broke the world hour record twice, first in his tucked style and later in another riding position, the Superman style. Both positions were later banned by the UCI.

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.

Miguel Indurain

– Als een ander wel kon janken werd zijn grijns alleen maar groter
– When an other could cry his grin only became bigger
Some people might this guy’s riding saai and boring but I really like Big Mig’s style for it looked his smile got wider as the hurtin’ got worse. And yes, he also won de Wereldtitel tijdrijden besides the five victories in la Tour de Francia.

Jan Ullrich

– Ich fraß in Deutschland und radelte in Frankreich

– I crammed in Germany and cycled in France

Der Jan had the unfortunate habit of eating rather much in wintertime and thus getting in his best shape and form by the last week of the Tour… ergo too late. But Jan was cool and basically only got beaten by one person.
