    Is Riis talking about all these dope tests Frank is being put through?
    Maybe R2D2 is another brand name for CERA or Damsgaard's magic formula?
    He's certainly has the force with him.

    BR : Attack Frank
    FS : I'll try...
    BR : Try not! Do. Or Do Not. There is no try.


    :oops:

    BR has given me one of my favourite moments on the telly during this years tour when Matt Rendell said to him "how surprised were you when Ricco tested +" and he replied "I was as surprised as you" Brilliant.

    Old Frank almost became Riis's Death "star" on that stage in Switzerland.
    I bet he'll be embracing a lot of that fear and a loo roll, come the last 24kms of today's stage.
    The French describe the decent off the Bonette as extremely difficult and most maps show it with a health warning! :shock:

    The side they come up is far scarier for descending. A sheer drop to the right and the camber of the road taking you towards it. :shock:

    I don't think the descent today is that tricky - long and fast but not too technical.

    Which was then, in it's full version, followed by:

    Rendell: And how surprised am I?
    Riis: As surprised as me. (complete with playful smile)

    I enjoyed descending it towards St. Etienne-d-T last year. Not that bad. More open than the Jausiers side, you could see what was coming, both in terms of bends and traffic, quite a distance ahead.

    'Course there was a pillock in a Renault who wouldn't get out of my way, dead slow round the bends and accellerating faster than I could on the straights, until he had to stop for a lorry coming up :P

    I might have bricked it a bit if it were wet though... :shock: :shock: :shock:
