Graham Watson’s photos of Stage 1 of the 2009 Tour of Ireland are online. Ã‚Â Above, the peloton climbs Mount Leinster w/ 90km to go. Ã‚Â Normally, we try really hard not to infringe on people’s copyright and all that, and would normally only post (borrow, steal, copy…you say tomato…) one of Mr. Watson’s fine photographs for the purely unselfish reason of pointing you to his gallery so you can enjoy more of them.
However, we had to show you this one, too, because it’s just so cool:
This is Adrian Nyonshuti, the first-ever Rwandan cyclist to compete with the big-name pros. Ã‚Â He finished 82nd (+2:43) out of 109 to start today. Is it me, or does the paint job on his Raleigh bike look an awful lot like the Look 566 we reviewed?
