for those of us who work and pay taxes so those on the dole can live the lifestyle they are accustomed to and watch the the mid week bike races
. Who won? If it was an aussie... can anyone truthfully admit they know who was the best placed foreigner?
Having ridden with the malaysian team on Sundee down beach road. Was it no wonder that several countries actually had to borrow bikes to race in the time trial and road race? Hope they left a deposit with the bike stores.
btw... isn't it fantastic to see so many of the track riders riding "BT" track bikes, or "Bicycle technologies". Both local and overseas. And these bikes are built right here in Melbourne, in Heidelberg. Well done to the aussie bike makers, leading the world.
And wasn't it even more interesting the racing outfits for most of the top triathletes, whilst branded Adidas were actually made by a totally different aussie firm, who due to megabuck sponsorship deals b/w the teams and adidas weren't able to put their logo on the outfits. shame adidas stole their thunder. So don't go out and buy an adidas replica commonwealth games triathlon outfit as you'll be getting ripped off from what the top athletes wore in the games (refer Wednesday's eye in the herald sun).
