About time! How exciting!

It would be amazing to have a British TdF winner but he'll probably be from Kazactstan or somewhere!

Hardly current news.. It was announced last November, although not without the title sponsor. But it was assumed it would be Sky

Still, its good to see something concrete.

High Aims though !

concrete tyres... plasticene saddles..

Interesting.
I can't help wondering in Dave Brailsford's developing a god complex. Though to be fair, I would too.


(selfishness alert) - does this suggest that Sky will be interested in buying up TV rights, i.e. taking coverage off Eurosport and the terrestrials?

Good point about SKY Swerve.  They will introduce cheer leaders and stages starting at 3am for the Aisia audience to watch live too.

More than happy for Dave B to get a god complex... The Manchester Velodrome was full on Saturday night with over 200 people buying standing tickets as well.

Dave B signed my program .....

Ooh, you were there too?  We were just by the Start / finsh at the level the tunnel comes out at, same as usual.

 Not sure about 'god complex', but I think that it's recognised (as with Woodward) that if you are very driven commited and have the support behind you you can achieve pretty much anything.

Could only get a standing ticket.. On the rail infront of Dolans

Next Saturday is our (me, Ironmin, Holgs and Vikings) first attempt on track, hopefully there wont be so many people

LOL, possibly not.  Very different when you're there on a non Revolution night.  You doing the open taster session or is it a club thing?

Open taster session... a first for me and viking, Think Min has had a bash down at Newport. Assorted family there for a laugh, and then on for a curry in Rusholme.

Not a bad way to spend Saturday night

presumably there are easier ways for them to get hold of drugs than entering TdP?  they are from Manchester, after all..!

Literally a bash Dave by all reports....

Ah this is a British cycling team Candy - clearly we are all clean - unlike the naughty foreigners.

27/02/2009 at 16:12

Pity it clashes with the rugby or I may have popped down as well
