KP, Missed you out there mate. Not a day went by when we weren't talking about you. Clive had to pull me for the last 30km on that ride to Tekapo - the last 40km into a headwind was brutal. I think he was doing about 4km/hr on the climb up Burke's pass when he dropped me and then he turned around and came back for me - real Macca stuff.
I loved telling the boys the story of you buying the six pack of red bull on the ride to Dunedin (Gordo tells me it was V) - whatever the drink was I just remember being real scared as to how I was going to hang on to you in that cross wind with that much caffeine going through you.
Mike's name was mentioned pretty much every day as well- although it was lucky he wasn't there. Albert went to the edge for that yellow jersey and if Mike had been there as well Albert, Mike (and a few others) may have gone past the point of no return. Albert really deserved the Yellow - it was a performance that Mike would have been proud of.
There were too many inspirational performances from people to list except to say that Tara is one strong tough athlete.
