    "Welcome to Thailand.. safety fifth!" lols.

    This stuff is brilliant.... communi hominum racing with access-all-areas. It could never happen here in the nanny state.

    So what's the border now? Is this a disputed area between Malaysia and Thailand Eoin?

    Tommo and Macca. So many words, so few meaningful insights.

    Working overtime tonight, with all that effort diametrically opposed to the level of our enjoyment. It constantly amazes me that someone who has won the TdF's 20year journo's medal can still seem to know so little and make conversations with pro cyclists so awkward. It's excruciating to watch.

    It was directed at macca as much as tommo. Inane waffle.

    Ace frog. That reminds me of an old joke.

    What's green and smells like pork? Kermit's dick.

    What did Kermit the Frog say at Jim Henson's funeral?
    Nothing.

    The border is the normal Thai / Malaysia border, but it’s closed due to COVID (although it is very porous on the Eastern side).
    Movement Control Order is in place here until the end of the year, and appears to be much the same for Thailand.

    Gotta say I didn't know the Tard had won awards, huh, who handed those out? But I do have to thank him for somehow being the less than funny Anchorman who has kept cycling on free to air tv in australia. But fuck he is retarded. It's like he's never learnt a fucking thing in all these years, despite being surrounded by experts. I get that networks want a reliable lynchpin. and from his perpsective it's entirely different, he might think he's herding cats, but Jeebus.
    I mean I like F1 and Crofty on Skysports seems to be deemed a reliable Anchor. It almost seems that such a reliable person must also by definition be innately annoying. But then Crofty, despite his frustratingly squealing nature, might not be an actual retard. Urrgh.

    It's a certificate of attendance, not a reward for excellence.

    Tomalaris is hurting my brain again. It will never hurt as much as his though, I swear he was dropped on his head as a baby.

    He is crapping in about the coverage Anderson got in the 1980s. Yeah, the world was a bigger place, but I distinctly remember Anderson getting full back pages and tv coverage when he took yellow in 1981, big coverage again the next year when he wore yellow for ten days, and pretty regular coverage after that. Not just snippets in the results in the paper.

    Tooheys I think it was even did a big ad campaign with him and he was on the Midday show when he came home one year and Maggie Tabberer got a WAP over him.

    Also on the jerseys. Yellow, green, polka dot, white. In that order. Always has been dickheads. No way is white more prestigious than the mountains. Some years there aren’t even 10 riders eligible for white. They even gave it the arse for about 20 years.

    I've discovered tonight that watching it on the Tour Tracker provides uninterrupted coverage... just Matt, Robbie and Bridie (who I think is better and better with every stage as she seems to relax into the role; the bonus is the way she takes the piss out of Robbie).

    Even before Hirschi crashed I was a massif fan. Really impressed at the way he gave it the berries after remounting. Tough little nugget.

    They are a good team. They can keep O'Donnell imo she's pretty good. Enjoying the piss taking too between her and McEwen

    The number 9 curse for Porte strikes again. Stage 18. 1+8=9.

    Fuck off Commonwealth Bank ads.

    Fucking banks. Banks aren't your mates. They don't care about you. Banks are run by massive money grubbing dishonest rip off cunts who should all be in jail. This is not a matter of opinion. This is a fact tested and proven in courts and at a Royal Commission.

    Bilbao must be doing a lot more mileage than the rest of the peloton with the way he steers. Fuck, mate, ride straight.

    Lol, was thinking along those lines, but I thought he was fucked, burying himself in a last gasp effort for Landa and about to blow completely. Nope. He just rides like a spaz.

    Great effort Porte to chase back on. Still reckon disc brakes are retarded in respect to a quick wheel change. Bad luck with the puncture, good luck Jumbo decided to ride back up to Roglic.
