Evidence of TDF Witch Dr's handywork.
WARNING. DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT 'THE BONE'
ImageImageImage
Witch Dr used more pins for added bad mojo for Cadel "oogabooga" Evans bad bogies in French Alps. House Madam Wuzzle not delighted with childhood toy used for rituals (Gosh was I impressed with the fluent use of the French language AND during the TDF as well though. Timing!) but Goats much too expensive and hut has cream colored carpet...

But what about the mental linkages we will have? Not linking the two is like trying to un-see G*org* Hincap*'s spaghetti leg.

On a positive note... Australia Post have released a Cadel Evans souvenir stamp set.

Any they have given BNA five sets to give away.... you just need to answer a question, could be hard for some, but I want to know the name of the first Australian cyclist to win the Tour de France (overall GC victory). Don't say it... you may give others a hint, you can enter here:

I watched a lot of the Melbourne cadelebration on tele at lunch time. Gee he impresses me as a human being.

Though there was so much about the event that was amateursville, like having Cadel on stage for 5 minutes or so before giving him a chance to open his mouth...and asking the audience to thank the interviewer, oh and Cadel. I mean the interviewer did a 4/10 job. Would have been good to get someone who understood the sport. The crowd seemed to be very aware of the key stage struggles, and it would have been great to hear more from Cadel about what was going on in his head during those moments. Anyways, good on Melbourne and Victoria for putting something on at short notice. I appreciate it wouldn't have been easy.

SBS dude?

I thought he did a fine job. He did talk about what was going on esp during the mtn stages. Hard to talk about all these things in a 5 minute segment. And am unsure how Cadel was comfortable talking about it too esp to a crowd of unknowns and not "intimates"

I thought it was Gerald Waitley (no idea about spelling) from ABC radio?
