I have been asked a few times about where the title came from, of my new book.Some think it's cheeseball, but not way I see it everytime I shoot a race
Last year at my first Paris Roubaix, standing back watching the fans, and riders, the interaction, I realised there was so much more to take from this. The fans adore and respect the riders,idolise them. Seen with my eyes how they wait, call for them, patiently, and it hit me this is a new era of history too, almost a rockstar feel to it. We always had it, going back to the Coppi years right, the beautiful black and white images that we think of immediately, or that of the Mercxk era , and how can we not forget Cippo...these are Gods, Rockstars. Tim @tim_bladon has described to perfection how these images evolved, in my book, and Ray @onthebackfoot has written a beautiful poem depicting the Cobbled classics in a lyrical way no other can.
We are amongst Gods and Rockstars, legends to be made yet
