It goes past my house!

Well, close enough at any rate. Almost makes up for all the years the Tour of Britain never came past me here.

    They should send the peloton across that winding bridge on the harbour cycle path, that would provide some entertainment
  • Stage breakdown:
    1: TT/prologue, Copenhagen - likely to be some city cobbles on the corners, could provide some interest. In the Worlds Cancellara nearly stacked it on one corner
    2: Roskilde - Vejle - this could be very interesting as they cross Storebøltsbroen (The Great Belt Bridge) which is about 18km long. That's right as they come into Vejle. If the wind is right that could be echelontastic. Bridge crossing is E-W and prevailing wind here is mostly SW, so it's far from unlikely.
    3: Meh. Sprint stage.

    The "snake bridge" on the harbour cycle path would be a great.

    "echelontastic"

    That's enough of that sort of language, thank you. I don't want to read that again on here.

    Personally I think it's neolognificent.

    Portmanteauverkill if you ask me.

    I was just trying to say that if we got a decent breeze up from the right direction then this bridge for 18km could cause major klaxonification of posts here.

    I'm stealing portmanteauverkill though.

    Edit: I just checked on Google, one single result. This page. Chapeau. Or possibly Conchapeaulations.

    Contrafibularities are in order, I dare say.
    It's only a bit of sport, Mun. Relax and enjoy the racing.
  • F*ck me, I hope Kirby never gets a look at this thread. The mangling of the English language would be horrificatrociousnauseating.

    Unfortunately I can never use that word ever again lest I destroy the Googlewhack (remember them?)

    As for that bridge, echelons on that would be helicopter porn of the highest order.

    I'm drooling at the prospect. As for helicopters..... yeah, lets get a couple there just to make sure :-D
