Ha - I've already done it twice ! (Ok - one and two thirds then)

It would be a shame to lose the finish in Frankfurt though - its a great atmosphere. The city gains loads of dosh through the athletes and visitors - pity that some NIMBY can spoil it for everyone.

Wiesbaden not a huge move though, Could we not lobby for somewhere a bit further north. Bonn/Cologne direction would suit me perfectly. Seriously though, I am considering this for 2009.

Cougie, The apartment block my then bf lived in in Germany was older than 20 (I think) years. It was written into his lease that he had to give all visitors slippers after 10pm for noise abatement. The germans take their rules and regulations very seriously.

IW, ye got a smoking ban yet? Actually more importantly, has France got a smoking ban yet? I'm going to make all my IM decisions on the basis of where I can get the cleanest air from now on. Not China then!

Oh no, that would be terrible. Frankfurt is an awesome venue! I'm off there in a couple of weeks for my third trip around the course, and its great. Would be a shame to lose it off the calendar. Bet the local businesses will be sad to see it go too if it does-must bring in millions to the region!

say each competitor spends a minimum of €200, and each person brings one sherpa with them, thats a minimum of a million euros extra in Frnakfurt every year. Personally, I think 200 is modest though so it's likely to be much more.

Papenburg or Bremen would be nice

would be good if they moved it to france, or denmark

it's a well known fact that all germans are xenophobic boors with no sense of humour
