    When I think of South Africa I think of Car Jackings and Nielson Mandella. NOT 4 hours a day of TDF coverage, thats awesome.

    How many do you think we get? :(

    cheers,

    That's the sad part about SA. It's such a beautiful country, but the first thing that pops into peoples minds is crime. Ah well, on with the show.

    The TDF coverage this year was brilliant. People were even allowed to phone in and ask questions or make comments on the show.
    I believe you guys did'nt get that much coverage? And to think that one of the top performers this year was from Aus.
    I was actually hoping that Stuart would take the green jersey.

    Hey guys! I'm doing the Amashova National Classic on Sunday, so I'll be leaving for the coast Saturday morning early. After that, I'm staying there for the rest of the week to recover. I'll be chating to you when I come back and tell you how it went. By the look of things I'm in for a long, hard slog in the rain! My race number is E2837. Give me a nice draft if you come across me along the route ;D

    Take it easy and keep those gears spinning!

    Came off the MTB a bit heavy this morning, (Sunday). Minor knee & elbow injuries. :'( Silly drop off I've done a few times before with no problems! :mad: Now feeling rather stiff (and depleted!) so will probably make Monday a rest day.

    hehe, hope you recover soon Old Timer. I'm walking around with a heat pad wrapped around my knee. I picked up a minor injury on Sunday during the race. Not serious tho.

    Yeah, I don't think this warrants a visit to the physio this time. She'll think I'm a hypochrondiac! ::) Have you noticed how these young little physios can produce enough pain with their thumbs and elbows to make a Sumo wrestler submit?! :p :'(
