  1. Yes. Maybe you could highlight in here where he says the quarantine & tracing was a disaster?
  2. No I'm not an expert on what's going on in Vic, and lately I've kept out of it. From what's come to light in the inquiry, I think he's done a shit job too (for that part), but I just couldn't see anything in that article from Brumby or Rudd that related to what you'd said they said. I'm actually really interested to know how I should be interpreting what they said to come up with them saying it was a disaster?
  3. So you post an article, totally misrepresent what was said, blame others for misreading it, then tell them they are beneath you. Have your fun.

    Not enough mountain points to change that result (only a single CAT4 climb). The green jersey is often up for grabs, but this time, although it's mathematically possible for Sagan to win, Bennet would have to finish pretty much out of the points, and Sagan win the intermediate & the final sprints. It would be bad form for a breakaway to form in the early part of this stage, but once on the circuit in Paris it's anybody's race. I couldn't imagine anyone letting a GC contender get away though.

    But how exciting was this stage? I loved it, and obviously so did Porte & Pogacar. Both 2 & 3 today are top ITT riders, and Pogacar obviously is too. It just gave a bit more advantage to those that can climb as well. Guys like Froome would have lapped it up as well.
  6. How did you read it? Could you please outline which parts of their comments say that quarantine & tracing has been a disaster?

    Come on, look on the positive side. A 21 year old TdF debutant wins the yellow jersey and the mountain jersey with a TT after 20 days of racing that just blew everybody else out of the water.

    So will Porte be racing IM next year now?
  9. Hardly anybody ever rides in the drops these days though (apart from serious cyclists). The massive contoured brake hoods where everyone has their hands 90% of the time are probably at the same height your hands used to be.
  10. How did you get that out of the very first leader, Brumby? Or Rudd? Did you post the wrong article?
  11. Read a couple, but does it just go on all the way through with Lib's slamming him & Labor supporting him?

    I'm tipping the same. Richie's will be the harder of the 2. Carapaz will ride a bike specifically for the climb. Pogacar will probably ride a TT bike then change, or a road bike with extensions.

    An interesting night tonight, and not just for the GC play-out. Carapaz can help rescue Ineos's Tour if he wins the polka dot jersey tomorrow night. He's currently 2 points ahead of Pogacar, with only 1 point available on the category 4 climb tomorrow on the way in to Paris, and any other year, with a TT for stage 20 that would be enough. Tonight however, with an actual climb to the finish of the ITT, there are 10 points on offer. But it's not simply for the person with the quickest time at the end of the climb. The points for this will be for the person with the quickest time up the

    The first 30km will be telling on him, but the last 6km is anything but a normal TT. 5.9km at 8.5%! Sagan is all but out of the Green Jersey hunt now with Bennet beating him in both sprints last night. Sagan has also lost a rider last night, to of al things, a bee sting. And was this one of the best finishes you've seen?
  15. I'm sure Sharks fans had a good recollection of who the minor premiers were in a few years up till they finally won a real trophy.

    They probably had enough foresight to realise they could use them again if the race gets cancelled.

    Do they put the year on the medals? I suppose even if they do they can use them again next year. Anthing is possible.

    Jumbo Visma's race director has been ejected from the tour after "misconduct" during the after race inspection of Roglic's bike on Wednesday. He was said to be intimidating and abusive toward the UCI officials who were conducting the x-ray & internal inspection of the bike. Obviously he wasn't trying to hide anything (else Roglic would be excluded) so interesting to know what was going on.

    Robbie just gave details on Richie's gears yesterday for "that climb". He was riding a 52/39 on the front, and a 10-33 on the rear.
  20. Is this the same economist who was pushing for people to sign a petition to ensure there would be no mandatory vaccinations, or repercussions for those that didn't want to be vaccinated?
  21. Apparently it isn't for a normal "contact" here either, but this one was a health care worker, who was quarantined along with 200+ others from Ipswich Hospital. They were all tested going in to quarantine.
  22. I would assume tested at day one, as that is the standard process.
  23. No. The incubation period is between 1 and 14 days, with most people around the 5 to 6 days (or so says the scientific evidence), hence the 14 day quarantine period.

    I was watching this last night. I was standing at the time. I nearly got motion sickness & lost my balance more than once. What a descent. https://www.facebook.com/letour/videos/1392835657582056
