    You give them the finest ďLook GoodĒ Lycra clothing from the Fashion Houses of the world.

    You give them the most Up Market bicycles.

    You clear all those beastly Motorists off the road.

    And this is how they reward you!

    Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

    LOL looks more like a Lolly Scramble.

    Best way out of that -- Pick up bike -- tiptoe through the carnage to other side - continue.

    As she should be, the roads are closed for this race and some numb nut decides to put a sign out in front of fast approaching bunch of close to 200 racers doing in excess of 60kmh. Despite to stupid comments abounding everywhere I feel for these guys potentially having their careers wrecked.

    I wonder how many of clowns making fun of this situation would find it so funny if they were seriously injured possibly even crippled while doing your job?

    So true gary -- Hardware ( bikes) can be replaced, but human injury not always recoverable.

    IF there was a crash due to a rider doing something stupid, guess thats all part of it, but not being knocked off due to some silly ***** wanting to be a camera for a few seconds.

    I've just finished watching a documentary DVD about the race. following the German team.-set in 2003.
    This is a race and sometimes equipment gives out plus at stages there is a huge pack so if one falls (for whatever reason) several others cannot avoid that person and also fall. Tour de France is a spectacular and extremely tough event-some marvellous scenery (if you are not a competitor).

    The problem in Auckland is large groups of cyclists often riding more than 2 abreast and several disregard traffic signs including red lights.
    Note These are not cyclists on a serious training ride. It is a social outing ending with cafť visits. One cafť a few years ago banned them as they were interfering with the rights of other patrons.

    Well, the first thing a Lycra Clad Cyclist must do is challenge everything else on the road for Right of Way.

    The next thing he must do is attend the funeral of Lycra Clad Cyclist who challenged the 8 Wheeler and came second.

    The third thing the Lycra Cyclist must do is bleat to the press that this bully Truck had failed to Mount the Footpath, wipe out 20 School Children to avoid him, and therefore seeks compensation.

    As a Mate says: ďTheyíre Strong in the legs and weak in the headĒ.
