Just wondering if anyone non-australian has heard about whats going on with our cyclists???
ok im aus but ill start off, its a disgrace, its a mess, its in shambles, if we send 2 clean cyclists ill be surprised...
yep thats tru but i think pretty much all cyclists everywhere have probably had some performance enhancing drugs either illegal or legal...
id say thats a pretty unfair generalisation on all the clean cyclists, cause i can assure you there would be plenty, most even.....
it just seems like a dodgy sport to me with all this drama going on you can't blame me for saying this. Im not much of a cycling fan but i do enjoy watching it when they have the 4 cyclists in like a relay form racing
i love the tour de france, one of my favourite sporting events, gets very little coverage in australia though, track cycling doesnt interest me though...
even at the olympics though i like the road events
yeah the funny thing is we only see the crashes of the tour de france and the end sprint
they do have live telecasts on sunday nights, they are alway exciting, and the daily show that goes for half an hou at 6pm on SBS, also on 3 times a day on fox sports....
The Tour's first proper day in the mountains - when the race for Yellow really begins - is always a highlight of the sporting year.Originally Posted by broncoman
I think one of Australia's Tour riders is intending to ride in the Olympics. It's either Brad McGhee or Robbie McEwen, I think.
If they are performance enhancing then I should imagine they are illegal.Originally Posted by ash chaulk
There will be no David Millar who has a heap of talent and is considered a future Tour winner, now his career is in ruins because he admitted to taking EPO.
Road Cycling is awesome compared to the track stuff. There is nothing more then a hard climb and then a descent at speeds of over 55km/h (the fastest I have gone is at 57.3 km/h downhill).Originally Posted by broncoman
IMO I think Armstrong will win this year, he has a lot to prove to those who think he is past it and to get revenge on the writers who accused him off cheating.
hes gonna win it for sure, u would be brave to bet against him, good to see robbie grab the yellow jersey overnight though, hopefully he wins the green one though!
Only cos some idiot who can't handle the paved roads fell right in front of Hushovd. :/Originally Posted by broncoman

when you're winning, you have friends
scores and dozens, real friends
when you're winning, never lonely
when you keep winning
its all part of the tour, theres nothing to say lance wont go down and sustain an injury before the tour is over, i mean it happened to tyler hamilton last year and stuffed his race....
Iban Mayo stuffed his, too. And Tyler didn't go down on paved roads, though. Keep that to Paris-Roubaix.
