Video: A homage to the book De Renner (‘The Rider’) by Tim Krabbé.

The book “De Renner” (“The Rider”) by Tim Krabbé is arguably cycling’s definitive literary expression. The film above, titled “His Twenty-two was still clean”, pays homage to the book. It features Laurens ten Dam and was produced by “Live Slow Ride Fast”.

Another interesting note, tomorrow’s stage 6 of this year’s Tour de France will see riders take on Mont Aigoual. A location of prominence in “The Rider”.
