To coincide with Lance Armstrong claiming the yellow jersey and Team Discovery Channel's dramatic victory in today's team time trial stage of the Tour de France, I've a couple of cycling-related songs for you.
The first song is Queen's "Bicycle Race," naturally.
Next is John Tesh's "Road Made for Animals" off of his 1990 Tour de France: The Early Years album. I vividly remember watching CBS's Sunday coverage of the Tour with my dad and brother, back in the day. This music was the soundtrack to fast-moving images of Davis Phinney, Raul Alcala, Andy Hampsten, and Greg LeMond. It would also be played over the PA system when the Tour de Trump (later called the Tour DuPont) would have a stage or two in Richmond. So you see, my reason for having this CD is purely nostalgic. You don't have to give me crap for owning a John Tesh album.
As always, if you want either or both of these songs, leave a comment requesting them.
