I would never have guessed you'd have had much exposure to it Dunc, let alone play it. Was it at school or is there a local league or something? I believe many of the ex-pats living in London may have formed a social league in order to have a kick, but apart from that I would have thought exposure to the game would be more or less non-existent in the UK.

Go Webber!!

And for those that can move past its tainted reputation and still marvel at the spectacular feats of endurance and all round hardness, Contador's burst uphill to snatch the lead from Froome on the final climbing stage of the Criterium du Dauphine, was compelling viewing too. Bring on Le Tour!!

Or go to live venues to watch tired old farts pull out yet another rendition of Brown Eyed Girl. :-)
