QUOTE(S) OFTHE YEAR

Eurosport’s Carl­ton Kirby

Bikes Etc - - AWARDS 2017 -

Carl­ton Kirby, we salute you. Your bonkers cy­cling com­men­tary may ran­kle with the sport’s purists but to those of us who are rub­bish at tak­ing life se­ri­ously, you re­main a pun­ditry god of Par­tridgeesque pro­por­tions. So many quotes to choose from, but space, alas, for just two. The first de­scribes a racer’s Her­culean ef­forts dur­ing the Vuelta a Es­paña, the sec­ond a Span­ish rider’s diminu­tive fa­cial fur­ni­ture!
