Hopefully we wont have carnage brought upon us by the elements and other sinister forces this season.....remember the Arctic Milan San Remo/Giro plus Orica's best efforts to wipe out stage 1 of the Giro with their bridge breaking bus....and i think it was bike thefts at the Tour Med.

Still....it made things weirdly fascinating!!

I spoke to my accommodation in Barossa Valley today, they were confident Stage 1 would go ahead - said fire was a fair way away although it is expected to keep burning for a while yet.

Women's road race is scheduled for Monday arvo on same course. I spoke to organisers at TDU Prelude. They said they will decide 7am Monday morning whether to proceed with women's race based on latest fire advice. There is a bit of politics here - local fire authority has declared it "watch and act" - so TDU can't come out and say well we're going ahead anyway.

Your memory is misfiring- the Orica bus hitting the finish banner was at the Tour de France.

Sometimes, corsica was in italy.
This year, apparently, Belfast is in Italy? They must have opened a Bella Italia on the Falls road.
