Drunken Andy?

Andy is out of the Tour of Spain. He and his Teammate Stuart O'Grady must go home yesterday. And anybody ask why? After the Diner on Tuesday Andy and Stuart going out for a Beer...Enough for Bjarne Riis to say Goodbye to Bothes. Now, Fränck Schleck havn't enough helb to win the Tour of Spain.
For me, the punishment is to hard. We all don't now, what also had occur. They are Proffessionals Cyclists, they are Models, that is all true. But for me it makes the bothes more human as before!

Vuelta and other Things

Is Andy in Spain? I hope so, but I Don't have seen him at the Peloton. Perhaps it is to hot. The Time from Andy and his Brother will come, I'm sure :-).
I'm looking the Tour of Spain every Day in the Moment. And every Time I Think "Why are not so many fans there". It's sad for the Riders and the Organisation, that not Much People come to the Race. Only at the Finish there standing some People. It is a nice Route this Year. Nice days in the North of Spain, Andorra, will coming.
At Twitter the Riders are complaining while the Wheather is so bad. I Think it's not so funny to motivated himself every day to go outside for a 4h-Ride. I'm happy that i can siotting in my Homeoffice. On Monday i had rain here near Zürich and only 11 Degree. It's not a nice Summer. Poor Riders.
last Week I visit Wien and meet a Publisher. All Signs are good, that he will published the "Reiseführer Tour de France (Tour de France Travelguide). It will be the overworked new Edition. I'm really Happy about this. After the Meeting I go to the new Cycling-Shop from Bernhard Kohl. He owe me a Big chocolate, and I get one:-) With autograph, so I can't it them...

Tomorrow I'm on the way in Football :-) The Australien Soccer team will be play a Friendly-Match against Switzerland on Friday. Tomorrow there is a Pressconferenz and Training in St.Gallen. So, all Football-Fans come to the AFG-Arena in St.Gallen at Friday. Kick-Off 20.00!

R.I.P. Laurent Fignon

Yesterday died Laurent Fignon. He wins two times the Tour de France, 1983 and 1984. But he rides the Tour de France for Ten Times. I think, he is the famost Second in the Tour-History. 1989 he lost the Tour in Paris at the last Stage. Only eight seconds missed...
Yesterday he died in a hospital in Paris. Three Wekks after his 50th Birthday. The Big Cycle-Family lost one of his really big Heros.
R.I.P. Laurent Fignon.
