And they’re kind of related.
Why isn’t Madame Souza entered in The Tour de France? She kept pace with Champion during his whole training rides, and that with a bum foot and an old tricycle. At the end of the ride, when he could barely stand from exhaustion, she gave him a massage, served him dinner, fixed his bike, and put him to bed. And had no dinner herself, that I could see. She also pedaled across the entire Atlantic on a crappy pedalo.
Okay, so she’s not in the Tour de France. When she and the triplets are trying to rescue Champion’s sorry ass from the mobsters, they could have at least put her on the “cycling machine” to help pedal it away, given her cycling stamina. Instead, one of the old triplets is the pedaler.
