I forgot about that one. That's my personal favourite. I've heard some people refer to 'Upper Packenham' - but they are WRONG. It's definitely is or at least was Packenham Upper.

I cant stop laughing at this! Now imagine a Team trike time trial, 8 fatty boom-bahs in pink skinsuits

Do we have anyone on TAT from SA? I was in adelaide last 2 days and found a decent enough bike shop in the city centre, speedy edwards or something from memory...

Yeah, but when the 2 dogs are together, they're almost like one real dog. And they keep the missus happy. He's got little ears too.

Schleck........what a stage. Just feckin awesome. Insane ride by him and Cunego, huge amounts of courage from the Frenchies, too, and Chicken comes out of nowhere for a top 10!

On a more 'gearhead' note, I can't remember seeing any Lightweight wheels during this stage. The big brands must have closed the sponsorship gates.
