  1. I don't know why I come here, but I do, but today I have learned that the US is totally screwed no matter what they do. I'm not sure that's good for us. The world is not so stable these days. 15 years ago who would have imagined.

    Meanwhile https://www.cyclingnews.com/news/nairo-quintanas-hotel-room-searched-by-french-police-on-tour-de-france/ Not sure what's going on here. Wasn't his performance that tipped them off.

    So this is interesting. Porte apparently only 22sec slower to the climb than Pog. What a beast. Also interestingly this means pog was 1min faster over 26k on the flat than Richie, and the same speed as Tom D.

    Tough one. If it was just Landa breathing down his throat is say fit sure gun it, Landa can't TT ha ha. But Mas..... Still, podium up for grabs, all in? Better to have a chance at 3rd and come 5th than lock in 4th.

    I suspect he plans on going as fast as humanly possible! So that's going for the win Come on Richie!!

    I'm still recovering from the stress of last night ha ha. Good on Richie for battling it through. He really has to work for everything doesn't he. His team, while they try, are also pretty average. Porte said there was supposed to be a guy with a wheel mid way on the gravel but for some reason he decided to hang out on the tarmac at the end of the gravel. Just not a hard core GC team like others who had three guys scattered throughout that section with wheels. he must owe Tom D and Wout big time for the little helping hand they eventually provided, was probably the 20% that made th

    Oof. Full on. Not sure it will be enough. Lopez, dang, didn't see that coming. What a great tour

    So Bernal is out. I feel that will do his head more harm than good. There are guys completing the tour with no chance of a win with broken ribs, Bernal should ask sivakov how he has enjoyed the first two weeks. No point damaging yourself I suppose but I'm not entirely convinced that's why he is out.

    That sounds very unpleasant. And not at all inspiring ha ha.

    Well, last night. Wow. Was disappointed they all waited so long to go, the tension was massive and I feel some larger gaps could have been created had pogacar or Roglic gone earlier. Drove me mad - someone attack Couldn't believe the strength of Jumbo. Porte did well once again, really impressed. Bernal was a surprise. Just gave up. I'm still trying to do the maths on the greatest cyclists in the world at the moment both coming from a country of 2 million people. It would be like two South Australians battling it out fr GC at the Tour and making the rest of the world lo

    Ha ha. Wouldn't that be something 😂 I think there were even some detailed plans for that somewhere? Never happening under Dan.

    Are you calling me non credible 😉 It's textbook, sure, but needs to be practical. You need to actually have something to build. In Vic we are out of big ideas that aren't crazy right now. Not to mention what we are building is all slipping behind or in disputes. Plus it takes years to get a big project off the ground. Will be too late. Hopefully they invest billions in all the really important stuff they keep ignoring. The non exciting, but high value stuff. Plenty to do. How about a billions in public housing and road maintenance/upgrades.

    Great stage. Bernal looking on the ropes and Porte is really shining, that wind stage really sucked but still looking good for a top 5 if he keeps up. Pogacar would make a great winner, no team and all heart.

    I'm pretty sure it would be the worst thing ever. You can't go to work, the business you work in needs to fire you - but it's ok, the governemnt is investing in infrastructure you can't get a job building. They could do more small projects, particularly maintenance etc but they aren't exciting announcements so they tend to get overlooked. NSW and VIC can't take much more big projects, there is a shortage on rock for concrete, engineers and to it's not like its unskilled labour we are talking about. Digging is done with Tunnel Boring Machines now, and so are the concrete tunnel installati

    Coronavirus

    They have different roles. How would covid be going without jobkeeper/seeker? Don't encourage the Commonwealth to take up and interfere in state responsibilities, they try do that enough!
