This is shameful - who ever is responsible has not only potentially ruined the day for any Challenge riders unlucky enough to be caught out, but potentially could have caused massive issues for the pro teams on the world stage had this not been found sooner.

Haven't been any sightings of Shane Warne in SA, have there?
There are four phases of bicycle commuting; first there's fear, then rage, then self-righteousness and finally, fun.
A new expression has entered the Australian lexicon: Road Rage - having a Shane Warne moment, doing a Warnie, chucking a Warnie.
Cycle touring blog and tour journals: whispering wheels...
It happened at the Adelaide Formula 1 Grand Prix many years ago. They had been dropped in one of the overpasses and they would rain down. I remember the trackies at that point needing to check the track between each session to see if any more had dropped.
In the morning, we RIDE.
This is not a new trick... it dates to over a hundred years ago, in fact. Was reading about it in "The Crooked Path to Victory: Drugs and Cheating in Professional Bicycle Racing"

I rode the Bupa challenge yesterday, and to me it seemed to have someone stopped on the side of the road with a puncture at 1 km intervals. Dont know if anyone else noticed the same thing but it just seemed like a really high rate to me.
The downhill section before williamstown seemed to have a constant stream of cyclists fixing punctures, which is where I presume this happened.
I was thinking at the time riding past something must be wrong with surface.
