Yesterday saw the final day of the Tour Down Under and the winner was Cameron Meyer, an Australian. He won the race by just 2 seconds. Todays stage was cycling around the city streets. After 6 gruelling days riding through various parts of South Australia the race came down to the last day. Admittedly we don't have the mountains here but the top teams do send some of their best sprinters.
The race also attracted record crowds, some 772,000 spectators over the 6 days. Maybe it was because it was Lance Armstrongs' last official race......that's if he doesn't make a comeback.
Now Victoria wants to pinch the Tour Down Under from us just like when Adelaide had the Grand Prix they came and took that off us. HANDS OFF Victoria!!!! Go and find your own Major Event to run.
Last night after dropping Katie off we came home, had dinner and I fell asleep in front of the computer. I was completely exhausted. Admittedly I had been up since 6.30 am.
Went and paid some bills, did the grocery shopping, had dinner and went out to Lewiston. When Jodi called in on Saturday she said that they had signed papers for a property at Lewiston but wouldn't know for sure if they got it until Tuesday.
We thought we would go and check it out. We couldn't see much because it is surrounded by fences, but looking through the gap in the gate it is set in a bushland setting. Hope she has gone and checked the property out and hasn't bought it off the net like she did with the place they are living in now.
