Crazy Jane, back with a vengeance

Some of the most literate and passionate weblogging on the Tour has come from “Crazy Jane,” who often contributes to Daily Peloton's Tour coverage (anywhere you see “Updated and Delicieux”), and whose weblog, Le Tour Delicieux, remains in my blogroll, despite being silent for two years (2! years!), in the hope that she'll turn her considerable talents back to the Tour. She's also (along with Velogal and Marianne's Twenty-One Stages, others?) one of the few women writing about the Tour.

Jane is in Paris for the Tour finale, and has posted a number of terrific pictures of riders before yesterday's La Creusot TT, including Hincapie (above), Viatcheslav Ekimov, Gilberto Simoni, Thomas Voeckler, Jens Voigt, Chris Horner, Axel Merckx (times two), Vladimir Karpets, Stefano Garzelli, Stuart O'Grady, and Didi “Tour devil” Senft, plus some fan shots.

Noelle: renowned poet William Butler Yeats was apparently also a Crazy Jane fan - so you're in good company.

Oh sweet, CJ got quoted in this AP article:

“I love to see him win,” said Jaime Nichols, a California native who lives in Prague, in the Czech Republic, and spent three weeks following the Tour. “You don’t need to be a swell guy to be a champ. But Floyd happens to be a swell guy.”

Go Jane!
