BLOOD ALONE MOVES THE WHEELS OF HISTORY!
Have you ever asked yourselves in an hour of meditation
- which everyone finds during the day -
How long we have been striving for greatness?
Not only the years we've been at war
- the war of work -
But from the moment as a child,
when we realize the world could be conquered.
It has been a lifetime struggle
[bangs fists again]
a never-ending fight,
I say to you
and you will understand that it is a privilege to fight!
WE ARE WARRIORS!
Cyclists of south-western France,
I ask you once more rise and be worthy of this historical hour.
[even bigger applause]
No revolution is worth anything unless it can defend itself.
Some people will tell you cyclist is a bad word.
They'll conjure up images of evil dopers, and gendarmes going door to door.
This is our duty to change their perception.
I say, cyclists of the world... Unite!
We must never acquiesce, for it is together...
TOGETHER THAT WE PREVAIL.
WE MUST NEVER CEDE CONTROL OF THE MOTHERLAND...
...FOR IT IS TOGETHER THAT WE PREVAIL!
