I’ve never been to the Tour de France, but looking over the last few years, the race turns out to have inspired a number of pieces of writing:
- A 2003 essay on smart mobs and sports;
- A related piece on life lessons of the Amazing Race;
- A 2006 piece on competition, cooperation and the Tour;
- A 2012 reflection on how finishing a book is like winning the Tour;
Funny what kinds of things get one thinking.
