“My career saw the end of the last untroubled age of bike racing. The men of that era still looked each other in the eye. We didn’t tiptoe away when the time came to light the fuse: we preferred rousing anthems to gentle lullabies. And we didn’t mind getting burned if necessary. A true cyclist sometimes has to bite the dust before he can reach the stars.” -Laurent Fignon

Nice blurb about Laurent Fignon's autobiography Nous étions jeunes et insouciants (or We Were Young and Carefree) by Max Leonard for Rapha.
