There's a fair dinkum legend! That better be a VB, I hope.
A bloke at the local poky (actually the Crown Casino in Melbourne, isn't it?) after the race. What's more aussie? Don't need to stick a flag in the pic to see where it's from...
Ah! He's gettin' his carbo, Stewy!

|Stuart is a Legend, and is from my home state South Australia. He's becoming a hosehold name
which is surprising considering our obsession with football. Tomorrow he will be riding in the
Tour Down Under, which will be staged in South Australia, he has won the event twice so the
sport is getting great publicity, which can only be good for all cyclist here.
Luckily for me my wife works for the local paper which is a sponsor, and she got us some corporate
tickets for the first and last stage, right at the finish line :-)
Having a major 6 stage event through the city and country has had a real effect on peoples attitude
to cyclists, over the past 3 years I have noticed more people riding and drivers becoming more
patient and courteous, which is just great!
Aslo the government is spending money re-marking roads & putting bike lanes just about everywhere.
