    I'm not hiding anywhere. My name and face are WELL out there, put in Gkam84 and you will find most of my life, I would quite happily hand out my address to Wiggo and Team Sky (which I think they have from competitions) for him to come visit and I'd discuss my issues with him in person.

    I started composing my witty Confused retort before I'd seen your follow up post so this certainly wasn't aimed at you, or indeed anyone in particular - just the principle of people slagging him off on the internet.

    For those who didn't get the joke, I was more-or-less quoting his own words from his memorable outburst last year, rather than accusing specific people for 'not getting off their arses' etc.

    So no offence intended, just being argumentative..

    As for the man himself, he is like marmite, I accept that. Personally I like the fact that he is real, fallible and not afraid of being disliked.

    Oh, and I own a Sky top!

    The TdF will be as interesting as the contenders make it, and if Wiggins is not on form and has little racing in his legs prior to the tour start, then that would have been very uninteresting, so best sky sends the folk who are up for it.

    Good to hear, but what criminal offence could someone who threw tacks on the road be charged with?

    Section 22A of the Road Traffic Act 1988

    "22A Causing danger to road-users.(1)A person is guilty of an offence if he intentionally and without lawful authority or reasonable cause—
    (a)causes anything to be on or over a road, or
    (b)interferes with a motor vehicle, trailer or cycle, or
    (c)interferes (directly or indirectly) with traffic equipment,
    in such circumstances that it would be obvious to a reasonable person that to do so would be dangerous.
    (2)In subsection (1) above “dangerous” refers to danger either of injury to any person while on or near a road, or of serious damage to property on or near a road; and in determining for the purposes of that subsection what would be obvious to a reasonable person in a particular case, regard shall be had not only to the circumstances of which he could be expected to be aware but also to any circumstances shown to have been within the knowledge of the accused.
    (3)In subsection (1) above “traffic equipment” means—
    (a)anything lawfully placed on or near a road by a highway authority;
    (b)a traffic sign lawfully placed on or near a road by a person other than a highway authority;
    (c)any fence, barrier or light lawfully placed on or near a road—
    (i)in pursuance of section 174 of the Highways Act 1980, F2. . . or section 65 of the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (which provide for guarding, lighting and signing in streets where works are undertaken), or
    (ii)by a constable or a person acting under the instructions (whether general or specific) of a chief officer of police.
    (4)For the purposes of subsection (3) above anything placed on or near a road shall unless the contrary is proved be deemed to have been lawfully placed there.
    (5)In this section “road” does not include a footpath or bridleway.
    (6)This section does not extend to Scotland.]"

    should do it. Wonder how many of the police on duty would know any of this?

    Disgustingly expensive, and Manchester United are far from the worst unfortunately.

    There should be a £25 cap on kids kits.

    Charge what the hell you like for adults, if they are stupid enough to try and shrink their expansive guts in sweatshop polyester that's fine but price the kids ones reasonably.

    II'm based at the bottom of alpe dhuez for this year so it's up out the campsite and start walking up about 8ish

    We've still not sorted a campsite as we couldn't find anywhere that didn't want to charge for a full week, we're only in Bourg from Tuesday to Friday so we're hoping that if we turn up on spec someone may sort us a space out for 3 nights. If not, we are roughing it, I can see it being more fun and more comfortable than kipping in Euston and St Pancras.

    *edit*
    And warmer and less windy than the platform at Sheffield.

    Just be aware that if you are roughing it a lot of the area around bourg is covered by the ecrins national park and camping there is frowned upon unless it's a recognised spot.

    As mentioned above le grave isn't a bad idea but again it's the traveling in on the day that you may suffer with the only other option I guess is get upto dutch corner a day or so before the stage , get friendly with the dutch and see if you can pitch a small 2 man tent next to one of the camper vans , as long as you have beer or wine they should welcome you in Big Grin

    admittedly its off-peak now, but why would I pay £42 for a jersey when I can pick one up from sports-direct et al for £15 (as i did, full kit as well Laughing

    I dont think £35 is too bad, but for the tiny amount of material involved in a kids shirt I am pretty sure the margins are enough to drop the price and get the youngsters hooked really early

    and re. the recent forum debate about Teamsky kits, as a cycling dad I would be more than happy for my boys to wear a team sky top instead of a football shirt!
