I so like how you write, as well as what you write about. Not too many places you can get a (shallow) deep dive into the intersection of cycling and language and being a foreigner with a heart. I only say shallow to encourage you to keep going in this vein. It is really a pleasure supporting your work.
This is fabulous--thoughtful and thorough.
I'm speechless. I forgot that journalistic integrity is necessary for we fans to have an accurate love for pro cycling. The Lance Armstrong era demonstrated the weakness of covering the sport simply based on the surface appearance of the words of the riders. Thank you for having the energy and drive to go into the detailed depth and bring the nuance of humanity to the coverage of this lycra-clad spectacle.
I am Slovene. A fan of Roglič . Thank you for this.
I’ve tried to learn Spanish my entire life. I’m 64. I’ve accepted that it isn’t going to happen…
