Striking thing is the whole place seems like cycling paradise, e.g., number of good roads, changing hills, scenery, towns, etc., boggles the mind.
Looks much better than France, from looking at TDF, from bike race perspective. Can almost just watch for the scenery, LOL.
Parrot23 said:LOL, Eurosport commentator just said that Richard Virenque's yacht (I suppose, sailing boat) burnt down the other day. But Virenque's okay, because he's in the commentary box besides Eurosport box, along with J. Durand.
Wonder if Richard is still pulling heroic-looking, longsuffering, melodramatic faces, but this time in the commentary. Think one Australian rider used to call him with exasperation, "Richard, bloody, Virenque", I think.
Ha, ha, ha, Menchov could learn a thing for two from him in the visage category.
