CycleGirl and Flatbagger present the 2009 Tour Down Under

Well, seeing as we seem to have been unfairly infiltrating other posts to speak of our enthusiasm and excitement towards our little race down-under i thought it time we opened our own thread.

Poor CycleGirl is in such a quandry deciding just which Pro Cyclist attracting clothes to pack in the suitcase and as to just which teams she will be sharing a floor with at the Hilton (errr...meaning level of Hotel and I hope there's enough beds to go round....awww you know wot I mean!!!).  It seems that she has quickly forgotten that neither Benno nor Phillipe or even Dekker junior will be here and is just as excited at the chance to share a lift with Armstrong or to check out Hincapies varicose veins or to cheer on the local boys while she sits and drinks bucket loads of wine.

I meanwhile am getting the Madone seviced and popping on some new tyres that will cover the planned 800 or so kilometres with stealth and ease.....oh, and making my mind up just which is the appropriate lycra to wear for each day.  I'm also hoping that Lance may pop round for a BBQ so i can give hime some advice on the pro's and cons of cycling without testicles but it seems that security may be a little tight so I'm hoping for a little 'inside information' eh CycleGirl :-) 

In the following weeks CG will be providing you with a social column with a sports focus and I'll be providing a sports column with a social focus and we'll try and get you all the goss, the enthusiasts eye views and some scintillating photo's to keep you guys in the sub arctic climates warm during your cold Winter's nights.

There....did I sell it well enough.

And for starters......who said Lance has got a face like the side of a tram?? Tdu101321396020090108101329_medium
