    We love watching the mechanics scurrying around changing wheels and it gives us a chance to get photos of the riders.

    I was thinking that drawing pins would be best; any other suggestions?

    Save yourself a few pennies, if there's a hawthorn tree near to you just get a handful of the thorns. The buggers go through every tyre I've ever had!

    Nah what you want is something more substantial like a tibetan mastiff.

    Bradley Wiggins is ahead of you there. He has asked his Swedish friend Anna Tak to be a spectactor at the top of Box Hill.

    I was going to chuck a few litres of motor oil down on the zig zag road in the early hours....

    I'm sick of this conversation.

    There is no such thing as road tacks!

    Oh come on, this is the Olympics.....
    Surely we can show some national pride, and at least put a little effort into sabotage.
