Pretty impressive for a guy who broke bones in his back on stage 4
Stu rode pretty well, all things considered. Made an incredible (Ed might prefer to say 'unbelievable') comeback from his fall earlier this year just to make the tour.

Actually all 6 Aussies rode well (I include our adopted kraut Jens Voigt).

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

What you talken 'bout. Thylo will take any chance he gets to sh1t can amercians.

It's either denial or apathy but I can't be bothered either confirming or denying.

We had terrific weather here all weekend as well.

I came in second in the TeamKoK polka dot jersey comp on Saturday. 120km including a 12km 300m climb. We all got dropped one by one in the first 3kms of the climb by our resident animal with three of us grouping back up for a mini bunch sprint at the top that left our oldest and lightest rider dry retching in the nearly melted snow at the side of the road . Silly bugger doesn't know when to back off. There's nothing like a little friendly competition to max out the heart rate.

I was absolutely poked yesterday as a result, and was happy to stop and help one of the juniors with a puncture on Sunday's club training ride so I had an excuse to avoid the sprint at the end of the beach.

I think I have worked out the obsession some of our 'merican brethren have with lightweight bits and bobs. It's to compensate for all additional the crap they carry on each ride. i.e. pepper spray, handgun, full workshop toolchest, cell phone, camera, laptop, GPS, packed lunch, change of clothes.

You know, I really DID want to join in and have a little jerk onto their biscuit, but then I thought "Nah, farkit"

Can anyone think of a more gutless act than unregistering someone from a forum because you're a weak cuñt and take take a joke? What a ****ing soft cock loser.

Yep, I'm in a 4 man team. We've also got a 6 man team.
Entered with LBS and we scored a corprate tent!
Wander over if it's raining and I'll make you a cuppa!

HD, If I make the trip all the way out to Penrith to ride Yellowgimpy or Richmond or Yawanahumpme or whatever it's called it better be good.

Do I have your sworn testament?

dont blame me if your taste in trails sucks!

i like the place, thats all the advice i can offer! if you go off the main trail section you can find some parts of the older race tracks that arent in use much any more. its nothing like ourimbah, so dont go expecting that. i think you would like it. big race fields out there, with 100 - 150 ppl turning up on race day, so there must be somthing going for it!

its also not too bad in the wet as it seems to hold togeather quite well.

Ha, you were mentioned the other day on the 'ridiculously expensive seppo bike' forum. A renowned framebuilder found out you were banned and expressed shock and mirth (not in a mean way).

yes, i have a place ( well my parents do!) up the coast so its pretty easy for me to get to those places, jsut finding the time is hard, esp being in the midst of selling my soul, oh, i mean organising my wedding.

Rocky technical sections is where i fall to pieces, so i like to avoid them if possible!

Glenrock and Killingworth are on the cards to ride tho. i was intending on perhaps going to killingworth for a race this season but it doesnt look like thats going to happen.

HAve been commuting to work most days for the past couple of weeks via MTB, but with all the rain its really not worth venturing into lane cove nat park. hence im looking likley at rocking up this weekend at yarramundi having not come clsoe to single track for the past 3 or so weeks
