I dont think winning the polka dot means that much, I think (haven
look up the stats) but Armstrong could of won the jersey before i
Virenque did not do his insane all day breakaways. (not meaning t
turn this into a debate)


So they weren't insane then

You gonna go? I just booked tix for London flight in April.
Assuming I have money left in July (it is July right?) I'll probably
head over there! Oooh.. exciting stuff!!!

Would you go as an organised tour or solo?

Any particular stages?

I've lent a bike for a few weeks to a swedish girl (holidaying in
Bunbury)who normally works as a journalist covering the big rides. She
said if I'm ever in France she can arrange a day pass to the Tour. Maybe
I should go? What's a day pass anyway?

Well all day breakaways on flat or mountain stages at the tour would b
insane any day of the week. Whether you win a jersey or not

I'm thinking organised tour with some riding. Don't know whether to d
the Alps or Pyrenees though I think Alps would be better as that's whe
we'll know if Lance is still the dominant figure in the race. Could b
exciting. On the other hand, if it's a cliff hanger - the Pyrenee
would be better. Oh well, it's all good

They've heard you're coming:

'London prepares for Hippy's arrival' (http://tinyurl.com/3hpsk)

Woo hoo! Only 1 mile (that's 1.6k for the Aussies) from my flat.
Available now, rent negotiable...

Cheers,

I did his Channel to Med but know someone who did his Raid Pyreneen. He
is an ex pro and was mightily impressed.
