Stuff Someone Said: Federico Bahamontes...

By now you may be well aware of how I continue to use a written journal to document the happenings of daily training rides. I have long supplemented these with apropos quotes by more famous personalities in the sport, and thought it might be worth sharing some of these here. Today's quote comes from the great Spanish climber, the Eagle of Toledo:

"If you've got the form, nothing can go wrong, because you can see that it's not you that's suffering, it's the rest of the field. You enjoy every turn of the pedals."

Bahamontes (l) with some guy named Anquetil at the 1963 Tour de France
