It makes me think that they, or perhaps their audience, expect the cyclist to be running red lights, claiming a lane or clashing with drivers; and that this somehow makes the drivers actions less abhorrent.
Actually no Biff, it was just that in this case Darren Curtis was as keen as we were to ensure the bogan brigade were stopped in their tracks before they could start whining. The points made weren't to highlight that a cyclist was riding legally "for a change". I know what you nean, but this wasn't the case here. I owe Darren a beer for the amazing effort that went into this and the sensitivity with which he conducted himself and habdled Craig. He even sent a news crew to Cararra on the GC when I couldnt get the truck back to Brissy in time to meet up with him. Above and beyond...
That explains a lot. Sucks that it has to be that way.
Incidentally Dave, the work clobber is a great idea. Makes you look like one of them. Can you do your next piece through the window of a worked Commodore in the middle of a cloud of donut smoke?
