The dorky kid or Gillard?
According to the Liberal Party cheerleaders on channel 9 it was Abbott.

According to classic1, after looking at the two candidates, the Australian public are all losers.

Melbourne. Sometimes.
You haters. I quite like the C0CKSTRONG black kit.

btw - New Shimano 105 showing up. I love hidden cables. Ribble AU$216 for 5700 levers. CecilWalker AU$419. Talk about taking it up the hidden cable maker!

Those cranks don't look right.

Yeah... the cranks....

So we suddenly find where John Kennedy went to after selling up in Black Rock. SPAIN! Bike fit with a seatback post like that, if it wasn't Kennedy's he'd be hopping on a plane to do the nasty with that pole.

Ahh, the mastery of 'shop ;)

I figured we hadn't had a dig at kennedy for a while... Anyone have him in the dead pool list?

I don't get it: why are the feds getting involved in the Armnstrong/Landis thing?
The Food and Drug Administration - a federal regulator - is conducting the probe, so I presume they're going after the athletes and team managers because of illegal use of prescription drugs. The fact that those drugs are/were performance enhancing for athletes is, in a legal sense, almost irrelevant. Politically, it's quite a different matter.

I think.

...and also because Postal was a (partially) Federal-funded affair. Govt likes to spend its money on the drugs / dictators / wars of its own choosing. The boys should have explained that ONCE and Telekom were communist organisations, then they could have had EPO by the Vatload.
