Bob Roll rode for perhaps the coolest team of all time, and pronounces the grandest race “Tour Day France”. But he also wrote this:
“Leather Jackets and Ghetto Blasters”
Knowledge is not always Power,
Sometimes knowledge is pain
Reconciliation with a love that
can’t happen/with a love for a
life that will never come
to pass is the day you lose,
Loss and abandonment is what
love and life give until the end
of our days.
I spent all my Tour de France money
on faithless women, leather jackets
and ghetto blasters – the rest
I just squandered.
But to love the squalor
is the key to the kingdom.
Although I wasted my money and
can no longer afford derailleurs,
I still love to ride – so it
will be single speeds until the day
