“Don’t bother searching for culprits in systematic doping, teams, managers, soigneurs or any of the other diversions from the ultimate truth: the ego that made a gobby little kid, disliked by other riders, destroyed him.”
And once again it looks like he has destroyed himself, this time not just as a cyclist but as a human.
There are many questions to be asked. There are many happy to ask them. All I am left to ponder is:
How could a pleasure so simple as riding a bicycle become so corrupted a vice that anyone would put themselves at such mortal risk?
