    I guess Murdoch is officially a Seppo, but it's a damn shame he can pay for a Seppo team and not support any Aussies

    HD - your avatar is too small to make out for sure what movie that's from, but I'm going to have a guess.

    One of the best lines was "Can you hear me now?".

    I agree with Yokel. YOu look at Gonchar. He's been pulling liek a schoolboy all tour as well. I don't think Rogers has done more donkey work than him. Yet Gonchie comes out and schools him. He's in the next suburb he's that much better. I just can't see where Gonchie can get such a big gap if Rogers is supposed to be the supreme TTer of the tour.

    I'll agree Rogers hasn't pulled out a dominating midseason TT yet.
    I'm happy to be corrected but I haven't seen or heard of Gonchar pulling hard and long in the last week like Rogers has.

    Rogers & kessler were the last 2 left with Kloden on every mountain pass......Mick 'buried' himself to keep kloden up the front. A good man to have in the trenches with you methinks

    The 'cosmics' are awesome at 35kph +.....they really 'kick' in & almost seem to take off. I reckon they are worth 3 or 4kph over regular wheels. Surprisingly stable in cross winds as well. I rode them in 'warnie' & was significantly faster just 'rolling' than guys without deep dish stuff. The downside is they are a little on the heavy side when the road heads 'skyward'. Very good crit wheels except if you are having to 'jump' out of corners all day....but straight line, flat course at 35kph +......can't fault them......as for the corima's...I'd use anything that I thought was gunna make me quicker!.

    I remember him pulling hard and long up the category 3 on stage 17 at least. Still don't know what's the point of burying yourself on a huge mountain just to wave pom poms at your main man to try and get him to the finish.

    Top 10 is nice but there wasn't anything "special" about it. Gonchar will be remembered for the 06 TdF. Rogers wont.

    One of you music freaks answer me a question that's been bugging me. One the adds on SBS for their world movies they have a song that has some chick singing "Lets go down". Someone has got to tell me what it's called.

    Rogers is like Ed's favourite Charlie Mottet IMO. Can prepare and peak for a one day event but seems to fall down a bit in the Grand Tour TT's. Mottet won ****loads of GP Eddy Merckx and GP des Nations when it was like an unofficial World Champs. I'm certain Mottet never won a TT in the Tour or Giro and only really performed well in them two or three times (3rd in the long TT in 85 Tour and second in 75km (!) TT in 87).

    Anderson = Beast. One tough dude on the bike.

    I've got some classics he won on video. 84 Frankfurt and Zurich. To ride off the front of the bunch in the last 5km with some of the best classics riders in the world there and hold them off was incredible. Also got 88 Flanders where he was sooo strong but couldn't ride Plankaert off the wheel and Liege where Fignon sat on and cost him the win.

    Well 5 of us went down and rode a spin class for a laugh in the morning (mates a teacher), but when we got to the dam, there were people/bikes everywhere...

    We talked to a bunch of people (including a dude from Peleton) as none of us had ridden the trails before and no-one told us it was/should have been closed..they were all telling us it was a muck-bath. We rounded the first corner into axle deep mud to which I said.."This traill is Farked!".

    Yep lots of tech stuff, not sure what red-hill is but we did ride a few tech climbs?
    Oh, and the boardwalk was funny, almost everyone had a ride towards the drop-off before slamming on the anchors (and hearing the grind of metal on metal )

    Why is it that in the past 24hrs I've heard no mention of Periero? Second by a bee's dick, biggest winning margin in a stage....Landis rode on the pure hatred of his fundamentalist upbringing this tour but Periero is the stand-out for me this year. He road his ass off in the last ITT too, his best result in an ITT ever I'm lead to believe.

    Just think.....if just one of the teams had decided to chase Landis when he broke away for that 8 min gain on the stage he'd won, Periero would've won the Tour.

    what was the guy from peloton riding?

    i know on farkin.net there was a big whinge about ppl riding Manly Dam when wet recently and Nat parks, or whoever looks after it where getting there knickers in a twist about it

    Red hill is a seperate track, close to manly dam, both are aparantly in riding distance for each other. The dam is ok, but my fave track would still be richmond/yarramundi.

    sounds like you need to get some disks!

    Yeah, I understand why they would get the sh1ts, if someone had said guys the track is closed...we wouldnt have ridden....

    Cant remember what Mr Peloton was on, maybe a Trek Fuel? Quite a big dude riding with an iPod shuffle strapped to his back and swearing a lot at his gears!

    Tell me more about richmond/yarramundi? Although knowing you it will be a course for the roleurs
    And hopefully my discs/forkseals etc all come though! Will find out tonight when operation clean-up starts

    Well you came to the wrong place royale.

    Landis only gets a mention today because Tiger thinks Periero rode a better (or should that read tougher?) race. He's not in yellow at the end tho, so it counts for nought i guess.

    Notice how many pro Robbie posts there are too. It's almost as if he was expected to win green.

    In true TAT style we've managed to avoid talking about anything tour related except for bashing Tomalaris, calling Phil and Bob senile old coots, and reliving the glory days of Phil Anderson. Don't you just love apathy

    ah well, its all done,. i think that Manly dam along with the royal national park may be here for a limited time only, which is a shame.

    HMmm ok not sure that i know him then, meh!

    umm richmond. my fave track by far, just has a good mix of everything, good steep climbs, switchbacks, techy, but not overly so, bridges and water crossings, and heaps of different tracks they can make. me and hte guy i normally ride with debate over whats mre techy, ourimbah or richmond, he thinks richmond, i think ourimbah. personly given hes not a climber its just oxygen depravation getting to him! theres a race on this weekend if your interested, i should be there.

    Are small children the new sporting accessory?

    First we get assorted carbon based lifeforms leading out the players at the World Cup and now we get the TdF guys parading various offspring. The teams area must look like a creche!

    This new trend could create problems for the childless participants in the TdF. I can see it now .... infants ripped from their mothers arms and velcroed to the headstem as the peleton thunders through small towns and villages.

    In keeping with the theme of mentioning anything else about the Tour except the Mantis.....I thought Stuey O'Grady proved he is a hard man with his results in the final two stages:
    21st in the ITT - only 9 seconds behind Mick Rogers
    3rd in the final sprint on the Champs-Elysees

    Pretty impressive for a guy who broke bones in his back on stage 4

    New category at next year's Tour could be "trail-a-bike". Leader/winning rider & kid combination get to wear matching Wiggles jerseys.
