Haiku TdF 2013

Apologies for the puny efforts of mine to follow. The thing is, the last haiku thread was one of my all time favourites and I wanted to do something that celebrates the little things that make many of us cycling fans. If it's okay with you, it would be nice if this was about the good stuff. I am so tired of who may or may not be doping. Let's instead celebrate all the lovely things you saw and thought about about the TdF.

1.

Faded maillot jaune.

'It's okay mate. Follow me.'

So they made it home.

2.

Homesick angel climbs.

'Mauricio, you are here

With me in spirit.'

3.

Simon says, 'Want to

Wear the maillot jaune Dazza?'

'Thanks mate. I do.'

4.

East German boys made

men on mountains. 'Shut up legs!'

'Second? I'm happy.'

5.

Holms, swooning on the

fainting couch. 'I love you Cav.'

But it's you we love.
