Wow, that sucks. I remember that too...we were such cycling nerds in school that we'd make Fignon and Liggett jokes in class...

I still love Liggetisms, in fact I watch TdF more for his commentary than the actual race, at least until the mountain stages, then it's a toss up.

R.I.P., the man had panache, I am sure he faced cancer with the same spirit he raced his bike. (As an aside I hate when people refer to the passing of people who had cancer as "losing their fight with cancer" as Hinault did. This to me implies if the person had just fought harder or smarter he would of beat it)

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
