Last night I watched the 6 pm Ch9 news?
In the sports report they had a segment on the Tour of Quatar. They showed a bloke falling of his bike, so short that they could not give his name, but long enough to poke fun at him. From the colour of his jersey, I think it is the Italian Champion.
The news thing they omitted to report, was that an Aussie born rider, Heinrich Haussler actually did win that stage. He also won the next day, Wed. as well.
I've written to them suggesting that some of us are actually interested in who won, and we always get a winner, unless it's cricket.
I realise they have a certain bogan element out there that can only focus on bad luck, and their bogan reporters need to cater for them. As an aside Ch2 did know who won but no mention of the chap who fell.
Feel free to vent your wrath by way of a email to Ch9.
Maybe they should make it like a triathlon, 1/3 bike, 1/3 camel 1/3 sand yacht.
Well on the final day's Stage Renshaw leads fellow Aussie Hausler by 6 seconds. Going to be an interesting finish. My tip is that Hausler will win, but I won;t mind at all if Heinrich does either. Looking forward to it.
Now you know that I meant Mark Renshaw, didn't you ?
Yes, it's frustrating that cricket and AFL get so much more attention on Chanel 9 but hardly any to cycling. I have never seen 6 days of cricket or 6 AFL matches attract 900,00 spectators like the TDU.
