Tour Down Under 2010

A "cyclist" training for the Tour Down Under near Watervale

A "cyclist" training for the Tour Down Under near Watervale

One of the funny displays someone had prepared to greet the riders in this year’s Tour Down Under was  this fellow near Watervale. It seems he was really serious about his training regime for the big race.

An interesting thing happened while I was taking this photo. A journalist from the local Balaklava newspaper pulled up in her car, grabbed her camera and then asked me to pose by this “cyclist”.  She then proceeded to interview me. A little story about me and a photo of me “coaching” the cyclist appeared in the paper two days later. My daughter was able to get hold of a copy and send it to me. Ah – my ten seconds of fame.
