image for Who but cyclists would race over cobbles?
they call it "The Hell of the North"

The Tour de France is a very strange bike race. First off, it usually doesn't begin in France anymore. It's started in London, Rotterdam, Switzerland and Belgium in the recent past.

Each year it usually goes into Spain and leaves Spain, into Italy and then leaves Italy: same with Belgium, Switzerland and Germany. All very European but it will always be the Tour de France.

This year, the Tour tried the cobbles in Belgium. The poor cyclists, in their tight thingies, bouncing up and down over all those cobbles. No wonder their breakfast keeps coming back to them. Let's hope that they protected their dangly bits. Yet, some appear to love all the discomfort.

A Danish cyclist, having covered himself in mud and fallen off his bike several times is quoted as saying,

"It's a bollocks, this race. You're working like an animal, you don't have time to pee, you wet your pants. You're riding on cobbles like this, you're slipping all over the place...............it's a pile of shit!"

"Would you start the race again?", he was asked.

"Sure it's the most beautiful race in the world."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
