    Congratulations Sastre & CSC

    Congratulations To carlos & his team on a well deserved TDF win. CSC had easily the strongest team & executed their plan to win the tour perfectly. Cadel did another fine effort, especially given the lack of suuport from his team, which I'm sure would be disappointing for all that hoped he could...

    Riding shades!

    G'day all, well I finally broke the 'Euro' bike shades after 3 years of use. Not a bad investment for $30. For me, how long the shades last, is directly proportional to how much they cost in the 1st place. for instance, a $200 Bolle or Rudy means that I'm likely to sit on them, stack the bike...
