Yeh but now Jan is out, and I suspect Basso will follow after what has come out today

Hopefully we might actually end up with some sort of "clean" TDF wouldn't that be great.

Is it just me or were there about 1,234,487 ads during the prologue alone?:eek:
Of course there were only about 3 distinct ads...

Interesting to see more "supporters" of Le Tour coming on board with their advertising.
Since when has an investment bank had any interest in cycling? But I suppose if it means that we get more coverage a few ads here and there is ok by me.

I recall reading somewhere recently (either on this forum or in the Sydney Morning Herald) that cycling has become the new golf - it's apparently becoming the sport of choice for upper class types who socialise on Saturday mornings, and that owning a nice expensive shiny bike is regarded as a status symbol.

Maybe this particular financial group have decided to test this out...

On a related issue, what's the story with the coverage itself. Why half an hour of chat and recaps before showing the racing. I for one would like to see a start, rather than catching the race an hour in. Also, what are Phil and Paul doing before they start commentating? Are we waiting for the start of an ITV/BBC/Eurosport commenatary, or are they commentating just for us?

Don't forget Credit Lyonnais. Sure, it's always been big in Europe.

When I made the previous comment, I meant said financial group were testing the waters in Australia - there's never been that much interest in cycling here.

Commonwealth Bank Cycling Classic?

But sure cycling is a marginal sport in Australia and getting any business interest is non-trivial.

Would love to get my hands on a link so I can forward it to my golf nut mate.
