One of the things I like the most about going to cycling races, is the different people I get to meet through our mutual passion for cycling. One such chance encouter was with the ever friendly couple Lucien and Marie-Thérèse. People with a heart for cycling!
With their Ford Transit minibus they follow as much as possible Classics and grand tours, as well home and abroad. The 89 year old Lucien will even follow his 40th Tour de France this year.
Wherever he stands next to the race course, he provides the riders with cola or water. All the riders knows him and trust him… from Cadel Evans till Tom Boonen, and Fabian Cancellara. Respected by the whole peloton.
