Not sure where this photograph actually came from but it was shared on Facebook. As we begin 3 weeks of late nights and sleep deprivation, at least Perth’s time zones are working to our advantage with the coverage starting a couple of hours earlier here than on the East Side.
I will certainly be cheering for Cadel. Apparently Bradley Wiggins is half Australian but I can’t quite bring myself to cheer for him. I think it’s the sideburns. Yes, I am that shallow.
I am not a fan of the clash of colours which appears to be happening with the Orica-GreenEDGE kit. Orica’s logo is blue, but of course GreenEDGE originally played on the green and gold colours which traditionally represent Australian sporting teams. I’m glad that I got my GreenEDGE kit before it got Orica scrawled all over it anyway!
