My man Kyle at DQM recently returned from a completely epic ride from London to Paris, finishing on the Champs-Élysées the day before Contador took Le Tour by force. This is what he had to say about it.
"The ride was absolutely epic! Best trip of my life. Rad crew, french and english country side, racing against time and light, crashes, flats, beers, doubt, epic finish at the Eiffel tower at 10pm. The next day was the finish of the Tour de France, we were front row, then went to Lance's charity art show and did shots of tequila with him and Tom Sachs. Couldn't have asked for a better trip."
(I know. A ton of bicycle related post as of late, but bear with me.)
Kyle's still on the mend but we should see some video from the trip soon. Until then, take a look at Steve Nishimoto's rad photos from the journey. And while you're at it, click over to STAGES to learn more about Nike and Lance's collaborative effort to bring the art world into
