I was skimming though my copy of The Quotable Cyclist: Great Moments of Bicycling Wisdom, Inspiration and Humor, Edited by Bill Strickland, and stumbled across the following which appeared one after the other (pg 219). I have them here in the reverse order from the book for reasons I can't explain.
"The problem with being a Tour de France winner is you always have that feeling of disappointment if you don't win again. That's the curse of the Tour de France"
"I'm proud of what I've done in the Tour, but you have to keep your perspective. It's just a bicycle race after all."
