OMG! There's a rider from Davitamon in the breakaway!

And here I thought every other DVL rider except Robbie and Cadel had withdrawn.

only time i conciously lift on the upstroke is when im fast cadence - tech climbing on the MTB. otherwise its toes down ( comes naturally, is that a good thing??) and pedal like im pulling my knees towards the handle bars if that makes sence....

all the smart seppo's are listening to midnight oil and AC/DC.
how did you guys ever come up with Men at work? or Kylie? or
the BG' s ( does that stand for Bloody Gits?) or Olivia???
sheesh, we sure have our share of bad music but so do y'all.
Flandis is originally from Pennsylvania, moved to California to ride mountain bikes.
Weird flapping style? Ankling? isn't that what Anquetil did? yah, thought so.
Also look at Cipo he sorta had the same style.

Guess der Jan won't be crushing anyone after this . . .

Olivia is a pom as well isn't she and Kylie might as well be considering she's lived here for about 20 years.

AC/DC are Scots aren't they (except for Johnston who's a Geordie)?

Even Barnesy's a Scot.

Are there any Australian performers who were actually born there?

Mundawuy Yunupingu!.......But other than that we'll 'adopt' them if they are any good! ....a bit like the seppo's 'liberating' countries that just 'happen' to be chocca with oil. Actually, I heard U2 are really Aussies!

Any wonder. That is close to the crappest hub/rim combo I've ever heard

Not excluding the mexicans or kiwis btw...
I would join a Sunday group ride with a BBQ for lunch.

The group ride could go to centennial Park or Lane Cove National Park or Bicentennial Park for a BBQ.

Noone wants Russell Crowe *cough* w@nker *cough*, except maybe the Bunnies, and then they only want his cash.

Nobody mentioned TISM, they're a truly strange bunch of Aussie musicians.

And hands off the Finns - two of NZ's finest musical geniuses. Neil's son Liam rocks out pretty hard too with his band betchadupa.
