Welcome to France. The first time he raced against professionals, he was welcomed with elbows and fists.



As told to Matt Rendell in this book.

What, you may ask, does a professional under great stress, who is riding a record setting 16th Tour de France do before an incredibly difficult stage? He watches quality video content created by Cycling Inquisition of course!

Thanks to one Mr Bike Snob for pointing out George's great taste in YouTube videos.

A year after his crash, Mauricio Soler has chosen to retire. He was advised by neurologists that he could no longer pursue professional cycling actively. A sad loss for Colombian cycling, which is sadly getting lost in the shuffle during the Tour.

I was invited once again to be a part of my brother's podcast. If you enjoy your cycling podcasts with a bit of talk about hamsters and other random topics, give this one a listen.

  1. Ochy Hill hits the big time! Actually, it already jumped the shark and nuked the fridge, or whatever the kids are calling it these days.

  2. I'm a big fan of your blog, and since you mention a book in the post, i am wondering what you think is the best book for a history of Colombian or South American Racing to help me put your excellent posts in a better context.

    Thank you

  3. Lorek,
    In English, the best books are Matt Rendell's, without a doubt. Actually, there aren't any others that are readily available, which is a pity. If you have the ability to travel to Colombia, I would also recommend the HIstory of the Clasico RCN and the History of the Vuelta a Colombia books that Mundo Ciclistico magazine has released recently.

  5. When we say professionals for cycling they are trained to perfection and well disciplined in their field like this sport you need to be disciplined all times because this race is dangerous.
