Paris and Tour de France

I have decided to write this article as a little tribute to Paris, a city that boasts a strong bond with cycling. In fact, Paris was the city that hosted the first departures of prestigious races like Paris-Roubaix, Paris-Tours and Paris-Brussels (now known as Brussels Cycling Classic).

Welcome!

Hi, welcome among us!

We have met each other thanks to our passion for cycling. Before creating this we used to talk about this wonderful sport all day and night (and we still do it) and the only good reason to stop our talks was to watch our cycling heroes’ incredible actions. We have decided to share our thoughts with you. Road cycling (men’s and women’s), route analysis, stats and something else… There will be a lot of things to say about this beautiful sport and each one of us has his point of view.

We think you are asking what the title of this blog means: Lasterketa Burua is a Basque term that means ‘head of the race’. Why have we chosen this one? On the one hand we wanted to take a look at a cycling that doesn’t exist anymore: the term was often used in the past in the Basque country races and that has been replaced by the English one. On the other we wanted to highlight what we want to be: a forerunner blog, always updated and always on the front of the race!

If you can’t wait for the sun (or for the rain like one of us) to ride your bike or you don’t want to be disturbed on Paris – Roubaix’s Sunday, you are in the right place. Are you ready to follow the next races with us?
