    My apologies for not being cycling related but I am a cyclist and a cricketer.
    Today mourns the loss of Australias greatest cricketing all rounder.

    Miller gave me a lesson in cycling too though when i was young , though i did not understand it yet as i was still playing cricket at the time.

    He was once asked what the pressure was like playing cricket. As a former WWII bomber pilot, Miller retorted

    "Pressure, I'll tell you what pressure is," he said. "Pressure is a Messerschmitt up your arse, playing cricket is not," he said in reference to his wartime experiences.

    I reckon I know how Armstrong feels about cycling every year when the Tour De France rolls around and Jan Ullrichs' name is on the start list.
