Just saw a baby on a bike get to the top of the big climb first today, sadly he took a corner too fast on the other side and went off down the hill. The baby was rescued by a spectator but the bike carried on down the hill the quick way. He still managed to get back in 35th place but how he did it without his bike, I don't know.

Cadel is going to get left for dead tomorrow. Turnipsock is ready for them but as he is billy no mates he hasn't got a good team to help him...ahhhh!

We will see whether that Aussie Cadel Evans or Turnipsock will get there and I reckon it will be Evans,

Rosalind, Evans didn't win today. I've just watched it and as predicted CSC did the number on him and put another of their team in the yellow jersey. I know that Turnipsock is good at time trials so he may just win it back but today it is Carlos Ashtray who won.

Well it is a tactical race and they are fantastic athletes competing in an epic cycling daily marathon. They also have nice bums and muscular legs and they wear Lycra!

Sharon I know that Evans didn't win the yellow jersey today and most likely won't win the race itself.

Mr Evans you even hit a policeman, you are a low cyclist.

I've seen Turnipsocks Helmet too. His is more aerodynamic than my husbands. It helps if you want to go really fast, especially around the track.

Tandem racing doesn't seem to be as popular as it used to be.

I remember Blue Peter, the popular kids TV program, did a thing about it as it was a good sport for blind people (not on the steering end). They interviewed a blind person and they had their helmet on backwards and nobody thought to mention it to them.

Does that tandem look like it going round the track in the wrong direction or is it just me?

I think the person on the front has let one go as the person on the back is trying to hold her breath.

Anyway, having your helmet on back to front sounds really painful.
