"Tour de France to start from Tower Bridge in 2007" [see SE1 headlines]
I know these cyclists are all supposed to be on drugs, but surely that's too much. Will SE1-ers line TBR in stripy jumpers and berets? Will Manze's do pie, snails and mash? Are we to be invaded and annexed by La Belle France before 2007? Will the tank at Bricklayers Arms finally fire a shot in anger as the Gallic hordes claim Mandela Way as ther own (finally letting slip that they've been behind the dire postal service for years and that it was a 5th columnist disruptive action to wear down our resistance)?
Whatever next? "Milk Race to start from Vinopolis"?
I'm looking forward to it already. I'm a big fan of the Tour De France (ever since following every day of Stephen Roche's 1987 Tour victory during my school holidays) and it's a huge event. I was in college in Dublin the year it started there and that was a fantastic spectacle (if you could ignore the drugs allegations coming out every day).
