    Helmets look stupid

    file:///C:/cycling%20safety-helmets.htm Safe helmets my ****! The only reason they are worn is because insurance companies do anything not to pay out. As is a helmet would make a difference in a real collision!:D

    Stats mean everything house as they record history and defeat your point. Your can't explain the fugures away so you attack me! Face it ol boy. You've been intellectually and factually flogged!:p

    Helmets look stupid

    I see no justification for helmets in a race. Absolutely none. There have been a small number of deaths in the tdf, mostly drugs! As I have said, those stats and the fact tdf has never had helmets until recently should tell you something. So you see, history is on my side!:p

    Helmets look stupid

    Just an insurance company ripoff. Good enough for the champions to eide without one for nearly a century that's good enough for me. I notice "house doesn'r argue on the records!

    Helmets look stupid

    House, you are a boofhead! I never head I would never wear one. On the public streret yes! Hoever in a race...no! What's the point. Raising the rare trajedy doesn't change my mind. Like I said the tdf throughout it's history never required helmets Thin boy think!:)

    Helmets look stupid

    Helmets look stupid

    You want to bet. Try bouncing off the car onto the pavement! Worse than any race! Anyway, regardless of the practical good of a melmet, they really take the traditions from a race:)

    Helmets look stupid

    In an organised race that has been raced without helmets more than it has with helemts , there are no cars or other vehicles that cause a problem. A bike race is not as hazardous as the public street where I understand wearing a helmet is sensible!:)

    Helmets look stupid

    Albert. You obviously missed the part when I said they serve a purpose. But they are stupidly designed and I'm not the first to say so!:p

    Australians will do well in Tour this year

    Is Ulrich racing again ?

    Helmets look stupid

    Yes, I know they are there for a purpose, but in races, a helmet removes any traditional we see in the cap! Surely in a race they can do without them or make it a matter of choice. When I see all those helmets it really spoils the visual aspect!

    How embarrassing! You're absolutely right. I meant Opperman! How the hell did I mix him up with the nuclear bloke ?

    Australians will do well in Tour this year

    Hi Steve, Thanks for the info re the team. Someone on TV said something about a team in it this year but I've heard nothing since so I suspect you're right. A grant from the Oz Gov't to the institute of sport would be OK here! I think the chaps you mentioned before will do better this time...

    Australians will do well in Tour this year

    I suspect some Australians will do well in the tour this year. More and more are becoming interested in the tour. I think there will be an official Australian team, although I am yet to have this confirmed. The sport does quite well in "Oz". A tour win will see it o through the roof!
