Lama was that you on Koonung Trail today?


Yup, 'twas me. I was out for a nice easy spin on the SS in the
sunshine. I managed a quick nod as I was ducking and weaving around
the slower random moving objects on the path

Has anyone here got a satellite dish that can pick up Eurosport.. I was
thinking of getting one put on the house so that I could watch some of
the bike races in Europe and maybe the F1 live...

broadcaster from a "dark territory" rings up and says "can we show your
event?". They just don't know what to do.

How is this unexpected? The race was being run 50 years before TV was
invented...

It doesn't make much sense. It sounds like SBS sport managed to get a bit
more of budget with the increase in ad revenue and decide to try and buy
the rights to the PR.

It's ridiculous that anybody would turn down money for a cycling event.
Once coverage exists it is a trival matter to put it on a satellite or
cable these days. Deals for major sporting events have been decided in a
matter of hours when there is enough money involved.

Personally I don't care much for the PR. I don't really get the idea of
trying to ride a mountain bike course on a road bike just to see who can
avoid falling over and breaking their collar bone by chance (or the
manufacturing quality of their . Macadam was invented invented around 1820
and a tar coating added to eliminate dust during the 20th Century -- some
day the French will catch up.

Eh? Mountain bike? Paris Roubaix is simply riding on the original road
surface, so in any case, should the Belgians also catch up and replace
their pave? Anyway, cyclo-cross can't possibly be confused with MTB, as
the entire redevelopment of clunkers for MTB came decades later.
Cyclo-cross or riding on unsealed surfaces on road bikes was also a
method for cyclists to retain fitness levels & skills in the off
season. Bit similar to developing footy to keep cricket players fit in
winter.
