Must Reads: PezCycling on Frank Vandenbroucke

If you haven't already, check out this obituary for Frank Vandenbroucke. It's beautifully written by Edmond Hood, who did a fantastic job finding great anecdotes that really flesh out the troubled Belgian star. It's a classic example of the show-don't-tell school of journalism. The story is also illustrated with terrific photos. (Will anyone ever be able to top the design of the old Mapei team's kit?) The other cycling news sites that I follow offered perfunctory coverage, picking up AFP stories (lazy and rarely a good idea) or just mining their archives and rewriting the material. Kudos to Edmond and PezCycling for making an extra effort.
