This was posted on InnerRing about Paris-Nice (which starts Sunday, nice one!). Every single time I see this photo my eyes go from Bernard Hinault to the guy with his hands up trying to run away. Then I laugh. Every. Single. Time. If I ever were to get a cycling related tattoo it would probably be that guy’s stupid fucking face. And when someone asked me why I had one of the Italian mobsters from Goodfellas on my leg I’d say, “No no my friend it’s the guy running away from a pissed off Bernard Hinault in the 1982 Paris-Nice.”

Bernard Hinault crushing souls on his way to Saint-Lary in 1978.
I usually don’t do that but I was really tired and annoyed with my ride that day. And to have some lame-ass kid doing stupid shit like that just set me off. I know it’s 90% “boys will be boys” sort of thing but I’m not a punk-ass little kid. Spandex and sunken eyes or not, I’ll get Bernard Hinault if need be.
