Overview

"He's dancing on his pedals
In a most immodest way."
--Tour de France, 1989

In the tradition of Phil Rizzuto's "O Holy Cow ," this is a lighthearted, ironic arrangement into verse form of Phil Liggett's florid, enthusiastic narrations of cycling's greatest races. Anyone who has ever watched the Tour de France on TV knows Phil, and his flights of rhetorical brilliance are legion. "Bicycling Magazine" writes, "His voice defines the sport the way Howard Cosell's did for boxing and football." Astonishingly poetic and intelligent, Phil Liggett's narrations lend themselves perfectly to this found poetry approach.

Bill Strickland is executive editor of "Bicycling Magazine" and the author of "The Quotable Cyclist."
