    Yep. Was a good ride after all his falls, punctures whatever but he was like 30 seconds down with a few kms to go. I reckon there was a bit more than just getting in the convoy at play

    To relegate, or not to relegate, that is the question....

    Under the rules, probably. But the rules are totally pussifed. There was nothing inherently dangerous in what he did. No more dangerous than simply sprinting at 65kmh in close proximity to other riders. Leadouts who stop in their tracks and swing over are more dangerous imo..

    Did Phillopsen even complain?

    I'll throw another one out there. Why wasn't Bevin dq'd or given a penalty for motorpacing? I'm not talking about pacing in the convey, I don't give a shit about that. He was sitting on the bumper of his team car at least 200m off the back of the convoy clearly motor pacing. Nek minute....he's in the convoy. He was also filmed holding on the car with a "mechanical".

    The abs can get fucked. By classic1

    I got sent one of those 'you need to log in to the abs website to register to do an abs survey once a month for the next 8 months' letters before Xmas. Addressed to 'the householder' with my address on it. So I binned it. Along with the next two letters. It went in the recycling though because I'm environmentally conscious and shit.

    Anyway, I get home tonight to find a pamphlet and visiting card on the front step - MY FRONT STEP - from a Stacey, saying call this number or I'll be back after 6pm on Thursday night. I binned that too, fucking litterbugs shit me. The only person allowed to leave stuff on my front step is the postie when they deliver Rouleur. Your plan is all fucking fine and dandy Stacey, but I have a prior engagement I'm about to make of utmost importance. That may involve me feeding the ducks, going for a ride or taking a crap at the public dunny. Whatever it is, it's more important. If I'm not out for whatever reason I'll be padlocking the gate. or I'll answer the door naked. Also, only prostitutes are named Stacey and I dont want my house being declared an illegal brothel. Finally, I'm not wasting a phone call to do your ghey survey. Every month. For 8 months.

    I looked up what the penalties are. $179 fine, not sure if that's outright or per day. Unless I answer the door I reckon I'll be sweet. The cunts have extraordinary power to enter properties without a warrant but can't enter your dwelling. I take great offence to the government sticking their noses in everyone's business wanting to know the ins and outs of everything you do. They even harassed some poor old bloke in Rosedale a few years ago with the same survey. For these reasons the abs can get fucked. I'll drag this shit out as long as humanly possible. Go and get fucked.

    I think that’s $179 per day. Personally, as much as I hate shit like that, for those fines I’d just take the effing survey. Maybe you could ask Stacey if she likes it in the tradesmans entrance and fill the survey in on her back whilst you’re doing her...

    ... don’t pull out at the last minute though, you might smear the ink.

    They can't issue fines to 'the resident ' though. So I won't be giving them my name.

    Anything not personally addressed is junk mail as far as I'm concerned..it gets binned, I'm not responsible for it. And I never entertain unsolicited door knockers. I shut the door in their face.

    How fucked up is this https://www.strava.com/activities/2097564922 Yet another Garmin fail.

    Seems I need to lube up the batteries with baby oil to avoid drop outs. That's just what I was expecting when I brought these pedals. Awesome!

    Very light ride this morning and pedals are dropping out again. Moral of the story - don't buy a Garmin product.

    Wasn't it a points score or points score team race or something equally retarded?

    I went last year. Was ok, there were attacks and breaks all race.

    Also I have paid for an entry for the Cadel peoples ride on Saturday but can't do it because I need to do proper training. If any of you guys want the jersey and entry let me know. I think I ordered a medium or small jersey (will pick it up tomorrow).
