“The Pain Principle” by Richard Poplak

I’ve just discovered Richard Poplak’s writing.

I like the way he describes the ordeals of a professional cyclist in this 2011 article from Canada’s The Walrus magazine.

In it he follows Ryder Hesjedal (2012 Giro d’Italia winner) during his ride of the 2011 Vuelta al País Vasco in Spain.

I wish I could write like Richard.
