I've got me doubts about Phonak, more so than floyd himself........I reckon Rabo & T mobile can send a few off the front & Floyds gunna either have to chase or wait for someone else to do it.......given he likely won't have any team mates around once the 'wick' gets turned up...cadel's gunna have the same problem, Horner won't be any help at all if he's spending his days back in the 'auto bus'!.......I reckon Menchev has gotta be a chance on this stage.

I had to laugh after seeing Horner on an SBS pre-stage fluff piece saying how he is Cadel's man for the hills and would be right there beside him when the road turned upwards and then SBS get into the day's coverage & there's Horner struggling to say aboard the 'bus!

Given his position on the bike I think he'd be more at home riding one of his goats!!

so in doing some middle east research I'd googled Giza and one of the pages I had open was www.cia.gov
24hrs later it's still open and I go back and have a look around the site, and they've got a cool map of the world on their maps page. I thinks I'll download that.... 8.4MB for a bloody map?
Should I be afraid?

Im factoring in that I would need to replace the bearings.
Better to ask Jock than me. I waived cash in that guys face, and couldn't get him to sell me anything, so I may be a bit biased against him.

I didn't run away I went walkabout you roo rooter bastid. Hey I need some time to myself
if I'm gunna be able to waste half my day here.

oh yah, one other thing:

Leave Lancy pants outta this, and his mother/girlfriend/wife clones too.
He is working to make the world safe for democracy and is a hero and nearly died ferchists sake.
he wasn't shagging those sheilas for fun you know, and besides Cheryl actually RODE a bike
up Alp d'Huez I saw it on a humane interest story on OLN (Only Lance Network) last year
before he dumped her.

I believe the next political hotspot is going to be Lesotho, I understand that we are
going to be going there to help make the world a safer place, but then I might be wrong
(not that it matters).

and I'd be careful of all the political banter, some other mod may take it on themselves
to move TAT(s) to Foo, and then you'd be in the porcelain phone to god with all that seppo talk.

w@nkers.

have a nice day

marty

Marty, I suspect you are not really American at all. You should be expecting a visit from Homeland Security any time now
