    Sounds good. You shouldn't need them too much though, all the descents are pretty controlled and safe. Except the one that we rode up last time. That one ends up on a really dodgy piece of road with lots of rich bastards driving land yachts and not looking where they are going. Fun :D

    Speaking of which, who is in for the TAN ride? It's got it all! Beer, boobs* and bikes... Can't get any better (for the ladies, the second 'B' can be "bums" :D [no homo connotations at all])

    So far - ma, beebs, Merida, Myself.

    Mr Ma?
    Jock?
    Al?
    46 (65)?
    Other CC'ers - relying on you jock and Al...
    Lurkers?
    I'm sure i'm forgetting someone.

    Come on out everyone - it'll be a ripper.

    *no guarantee on the boobs, but it is Sydney, so i'm pretty confident about there being some sorts out there.

    Brilliant summation. Esp. on Valverde.....him and Peirero look like they're on a training spin. Would like to see my big smoky Kreuzinger spring to the fore.

    I've been bleating like a stuck sheep for a couple of seasons that it's time Robbie went to a Landbouwkrediet or similar. Would be massive fish in small pond...a real marquee rider with plenty of wins still and ego stroking. He'd love it.

    What's happened to Van Huffel? He surely would have been a better option than some of the guys in the team.

    WTF was up with that? A multitude of others were making attacks getting a bit up the road then blowing up like a geeks sex doll on a friday night. But then off goes Rico. I'm thinking geez that's a good pace. I wonder if he can keep that up till he makes the breakway? Then he just rides straight past them like they're standing still at which time I'm thinking that he'll just try and get up to Lang and fight it out at the end. But then after a 5k sprint quicker than I could ride on the flats he blasts past Lang and keeps going. Fark me I haven't seen anything like it (admittedly I aint seen much). If he can back up tomorrow I'm calling shenanigans. :confused:

    Captain Obvious almost. Thanks for your font of knowledge Mr. Expert.

    FWIW... McEwen wants to win a stage at the TdF. His career is built around it. Not even considering pulling for Cadel. Even though it would make him a hero in Australia.

    Dunno if any of you guys are Campy fans, but I can get the new Super Record in the first week of September. 8 piece gruppo will be somewhere on the other side of 3k.

    Who's this Geoff Vadar guy? Is he someone's sock-puppet? Someone's Best Man at their wedding or best friend?

    Just want to get the background info first... [​IMG]
