True enough Rowan, and every Aussie cyclist older than 20 will probably know who is is, what he achieved, and what colour undies he wore on his extraordinary retirement ride (trick statement for newbies!!). But the question posed relates to current day, and sadly our Oppy's influence is waning against the might of modern day heroes like McEwen, OGrady, Cooke, Rogers, et al.
