Le Tour

Leave a comment

Each year in Australia SBS provides great coverage of the Tour de France. Each year we sit up in the early morning and watch remarkable feats of endurance … and hope in the most naive way that we are witnessing the true expression of mano-a-mano.

The Commons has some great images of the race many years before SBS’s coverage. I find them remarkably evocative and a powerful stimulus to consider the expression of the human spirit through sporting endeavour.
