    I did last night. Set the video to record correctly _tonight_ that is. Bum. Not being able to add 1
    to 11 at a late hour was my problem. I too shall try again.

    That's not a breakfast -- that's a banquet.

    I was fortunate enough to witness the closing stage of this event first-hand on a visit to
    Malaysia in 2000.

    The Tour of Langkawi is really a Tour of Malaysia although it probably started in Langkawi, a
    duty-free tourist island off Malaysia's North Western coast.

    Needless to say it's an event which is a source of much pride for both the nation and its rather
    less than diplomatic president Dr Mahatir Mohammed.

    That year Dr M decided to milk the occasion by dressing up in a Yellow Jersey in order to present
    the winner's prize to Chris Horner. Now some dignitaries can carry this off (cf Nelson Mandela in
    1995), others just look stupid - I'll leave you to guess which one it was in this case.

    When it was his turn to take the mike he decided that not only were his nation's internal problems
    fitting subject material for his presidential speech but that this was a good opportunity to
    exacerbate them.

    He started off with "Malaysia is a nation of many races and cultures. Some say we scratch each
    others' faces but really we only scratch each others' back so that's OK."

    Dr M and his party are Malay the predominant culture but often historically less prosperous than the
    Chinese with whom they share the peninsula. This has, needless to say, been the greatest source of
    Malaysia's social unrest so jolly old Mahatir in his inimitable style carries on "I'd just like to
    thank you all for the support the nation has given this race - especially yesterday during the Tour
    of Selangor. I'm glad so many of you thought the race more important than the Chinese New Year"

    My husband and I were also extremely fortunate to be at the final stages of the 2000 race. Were you
    there as guests of First Cartel?? Just wondered if we may have met. From my recollection Dr, M - who
    is actually the Prime minister, not president!! And Datuk Wan Lokman of Race orgainisers First
    Cartel, were both presented with Race Jerseys, by if I recall correctly, the Mercury team, and were
    invited to put them on, Which with much hillarity and to the crowds delight they did.

    No. Independent traveller on the way home from Australia (blah, blah, blah.....). Broke
    Singapore-Butterworth train journey at KL - was blissfully unaware of impending race but glad of the
    added bonus. Especially since KL was pretty dead over the Chinese New Year whereas Penang, my next
    stop, was practically booked out (I was lucky to get a room).

    Easy to forget that the head of state of pretty well all commonwealth countries is none other than
    our own Queen!!!!

    I can't remember the delight and hilarity. All I remember is Dr M walking past me about 5 yards away
    and how easy it would have been to assassinate him. The water hoses to cool the riders down. Oh -
    and THAT speech.
