About

Cyclocosm is a fully independent pro cycling news and commentary blog. What you won’t find here are blocks of text lifted from Cyclingnews, meditations on my ride home from work, or vague, cookie-cutter product reviews. What you will find are race reports on everything from Milan-San Remo to the local training crit, utterly unfounded opinions, plenty of seething rage, and twice the journalistic zest of The New York Post.

    EYES ON THE TOUR DE FRANCE Photographic Exhibition by Graham Watson

    World No. 1 Cycle Racing Photographer Englishman Graham Watson helps Welcome the Tour de France to London with 30 Year Exhibition!

    Born in London in 1956, Graham Watson took his first steps in photography in 1972, working as an assistant to a London society photographer whose clients included British aristocracy and foreign royal families. Commuting to and from London each day by bicycle drew Watson’s attention to the sport of cycle racing and, eventually, to see the Tour de France in Paris in 1977. Smitten by this sighting of ‘Le Tour’, Watson focussed all his energies on photographing what he considered to be a ‘beautiful’ sport – to the point, in the early 1980s, where he was a regular feature at European races, and soon gained access to the inner-sanctum of cycling photographers – a largely Belgian/French/Italian clan.

    Three decades later, Graham Watson, known and admired the world over, will celebrate the London Grand Départ of the 2007 Tour de France with an exhibition of over 200 of his finest Tour de France photographs from the past 30 years. The Eyes On The Tour de France Exhibition, in association with Oakley, will be held from July 1-9 at County Hall Gallery in London’s vibrant South Bank, next to the London Eye overlooking the Palace of Westminster and Big Ben. Visitors will be able to purchase framed archival Lambda Photographic Prints from the Exhibition.

    Times: Jul 01 – Jul 09, Daily 10am – 6.30pm (except July 5th: 10am – 5pm)
    Price: Entry to the Exhibition is Free!!

    Why Velonews-bashing? I mean, it doesn’t shock me, I can think of reasons, but I’d like to hear yours.

    Why Velonews-bashing? Well, to paraphrase the immortal Nelson Muntz, “Gotta bash something.”

    In all honestly, I find Velonews entirely acceptable 90-95% of the time. But when you’re the closest thing this sport has to a publication of record, you need to not make dumb mistakes like saying Stijn Devolder never came close to winning a classic before taking Tour of Flanders.

    And when Velonews does make dumb mistakes, there needs to be a gadfly like me to bite them for it.

    I follow you on Twitter and enjoy the sarcasm and cutting humour! It all makes sense now…
