100 edition over and out

Well, for three weeks I’ve talked utter shite everyday on the Tour, a little less than the great Philip ‘Phil’ Alexander Liggett, MBE. But still a fair amount of waffle. What a great Tour it turned out to be, even if the bookies favourite did exactly what we all thought he would. It was never a given though and I really enjoyed watching Chris Froome ride. His slightly pained style of riding, expression and awkwardly shy personality struggling with the media circus – actually earnt my respect – He did so well and is an exceptionally talented. We saw moments of weakness in him and that was good to see, otherwise my awful nickname might have stuck a bit more. It seems a little blasé for us Brits to not be so surprised, it’s only two wins out of a 100 for us, just so happens it’s year on year and hopefully next year too. Looking forward to next year’s Tour already. Now time for me to stop talking so much bollocks, thanks to anyone who actually read any of this, means a lot to us here at Headset Press.

    Too late for the awful nickname not to stick Steve. Alien Robot Head is a crowd favourite down in Oz with our crew.

      Ooops! Well it is isn’t it? Too late indeed. Jeez, that means someone actually read my posts. Thanks.
