Six Short Poems For The Hero

Eddy Merckx is a great name. It is also a fun name to say over and over. We think there is something about the CKX that rings just right in our ears. When the Chicago Heroes get together we often (all the time) say cycling related names or words in conversation which upon being spoken, echo as if they were released into a canyon or across a undisturbed lake. You can see the emotional reaction on the faces of Heroes while they stare off into space. With this in mind on Wednesday, September 14, 2011 we offer six decidedly short poems in quotations that should get you to the end of the day.

“Richard Sachs Lug”

“Eddy Merckx Domo Farm Frites Team SC”

“Campagnolo Super Record Gruppo”

“Joe Bell Paint Job”

“Dario Pegoretti Marcelo”

“Wilfried Peeters on the Cobbles”*

*Anybody out there want to send us a Haiku based on “Wilfried Peeters on the Cobbles”? We promise to post your entries later this week!
