About/Contact

I was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia, but now live in the United States. It's for this reason that I often, but not exclusively, write about Colombia within the context of cycling. My admittedly second-rate writing represents my attempt to help document a nation's history within the sport.

The blog's tone is decidedly schizophrenic, with one post focusing on Colombia's cycling history, and the next being about Johan Museeuw's hair implants. If you're willing to put up with that lack of focus, you may enjoy the blog.

  1. Love your blog. There is always a lack of information on Colombian cycling heroes and I love to hear more about them.

    I love to hear more about Herrera, Wilches and Parra. They were famous in the 80s but almost all the information I could find was in Spanish which I do not know.

    And when they talked about the Columbia cycling teams in the 2000s, I always thought they were talking about the CdC squad.

  2. Great Blog! Thank you for the Colombian cycling history! I am married to a Colombian, but was a cycling fanatic well before. It is something that me and her Father have bonded over. And he gets me local team kits from the teams every holiday. I have even gotten to ride down there, with Botero and ouch it hurt. But a ton of fun! Thanks again for the great blog.

  4. I have loved reading your blog - it has been eye-opening.
    I am looking forward to this year's TDF, & I have a new rider to follow & support, a Columbian one :-)

  8. Klaus, tu blog es excelente, llevo horas pegado a tu pagina disfrutando cada palabra escrita. queria preguntarte, tienes algun post dedicado a los periodistas y narradores cicilisticos colombianos? estoy ademas haciendo un modelo a escala de los transmoviles de RCN, tienes alguna foto de ellos en tu coleccion que me puedas aportar para documentar mejor el proyecto? gracias.

  10. Great work Klaus. I was born and raised in the US (my parents are like yourself) and would have never guessed you were writing in a second language. Your work is very informative and insightful and really leaves me yearning to see these riders live. Keep it up!

  14. What happened to the Matt Rendell video? I had bookmarked it to watch later and now appears to be gone.

  15. Sorry, Matt set the video to "private" so I took down the post...since it linked to nothing. He's working on a deal with a few people that may make it available in one way or another. The moment I hear anything, I'll let you know know asap.

  16. I have been following your blog for a while now and found it very humorous at times. I know you were on a "adult braces" kick for a while. Well I saw this documentary and it kind goes along with cycling. Who knows I think its probably that these kids now have enough money to get their teeth fixed but then? Anyways not sure if you have seen it but here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMMPYOLJZRc
