Wow! There's some big names on the list of participants though I don't
know if they'll all be there, but look out for this chap - GBR19770104
MILLAR David GBR - David Millar from Scotland (or at least his parents
were, I think he was born abroad somewhere). He has a good chance of
winning any time trial. He's very good indeed.
I may actually get to see that one of these days as I reckon my next
big cycle tour will be along the USA-Candian border(ish) west-east
from British Columbia to New England. Does that include Hamilton?
I missed the "Tour Down Under" by one week. It's raced in and around
Adelaide but I just couldn't hang around for it with my visa and money
running out. But I did cycle a bit of their route - through McLaren
Vale where the best of the Aussie wine comes from, in a brain frying
43 deg C!!!! And I freewheeled down the huge hill that these guys
raced UP a week later in similar heat. I paused for a pleasant iced
coffee at the bottom.
