Tour presentation is still two weeks away.

Can spend a month moaning about that.

Then pretend to be excited guessing which 12 MTFs will appear in the Vuelta.

Should be more Clinic news to keep things relatively interesting.

CX on Sundays.

When does XC and Biathlon start?

You're too optimistic...
I foresee 15 MTFs.

There's always football, and soon we'll have XC skiing, alpine skiing, biathlon. Sadly no NHL yet thanks to the lockout, but plenty of sports to keep me occupied. Anyway, the Tour Down Under is not that far away...

Unfortunately for some of us winter means only one thing:

Exams!

In terms of the RR it finishes for me after Lombardy.

Now, its time for some class CX and getting out there and getting the base miles in ready for next season.

Oh and there is something happening I think, in the clinic at the moment

But for me, it will mostly be frites, mayo and CX action
