Values such as sportsmanship, drive and community are not only central but they are also experienced by the participants.
Heroes inspire us because they achieved the extraordinary. Their personal stories make them recognisable to all of us. Heroes evoke memories. They are not made after one achievement. They achieve their status by repeating results. That makes them superhuman.
No ambiguity there
For mine, the acknowledgment that the likes of Virenque and Jalabert are welcomed so why not Armstrong or Ullrich is a step in the right direction. Either we totally ostracise every cheating scumbag regardless of nationality or we accept and celebrate the achievements on the bike of all equally.
Yeah, I’m a big fan of Der Kaiser
