The only reason I've seen/heard about the TDF on the news over here is when they report a Doping.. Not good for the event or the sport as a whole..

Don't mention the Commonwealth!! :lol:

Got a mate who did a spot of Courier work here in Sydney and he loved it. All the [bike] couriers here are Crit racers at the weekends and the traffic being as light as it is [comparatively] makes racing thru the streets great fun and good training 8)

Pompinos, Merckx, taped up Colnagos, all fixed-geared, no brakes.. Great job.. 8)

Anyways, that was a bit OT :?

Apart from the strong currency, the same reason anyone goes anywhere I guess; to see somewhere different.. :wink:

Anyways, what's wrong with the UK?! :evil:

The UK does have its good points even compared to a place like Aus. No deadly spiders/snakes/animals. (But do miss the spiders) But the weather is RUBBISH. But i wouldn't cycle in lots of other countries - The South Caucasus :shock: Central Asia :shock: Are hell for other road users plus just walking along the pavement is :shock:
Wouldn't be happy to cycle some parts of the US. I'd cycle Japan 8)
The weather in most of europe seems to be very much like the UK :cry:
Sorry i've changed the subject of this thread. But the Tour is so depressing :cry:
