While I’ve been busy writing words for magazines the last week or two, and neglecting the blog side of things, I still managed to get my intake of words and photos in all their beatific glory.  Hell?  I beg to differ.

Then again, I’ve never had to endure the hell that the stars of these pages have.  And their suffering, both physical and mental, and their relief, joy if they’ve won, at the end of the greatest cycling race ever concocted by some sick mind, is laid bare in the most voluptuary way.  It’s simply beautiful.
