|One-time literary elitest turned cycling journalist Jaime Nichols
studied literature and aesthetic theory in college. She has written miles of
torturous post-modern exegesis. One day, while toiling away at yet another
epic work on the philosophical oeuvre of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, she was
grabbed by the throat by the daily acts of courage, determination and
sportsmanship that take place in professional road cycling, and decided it
might be more fun to write about that.
As a cycling journalist, Jaime
would like to offer deeper coverage of what allows a human being to dig so
deep, love a seven hour day on the cobbles, and achieve the feats of
strength, grace and skill that are the elemental content of the sport of
cycling. Also, far be it from her not to love a sport that features hundreds
of fit young men with faltering English entirely clad in lycra.
