    I seem to recall this not being the first time Cyril has been bitching about opening the stage and having new guys ride his navigational coattails.

    Access to the press tent most certainly doesn't equal internet access! Media accred is upwards of 4000euro, then internet is at least that again (if you go the ASO internet way).

    most bikes seem to have the high fender,,, must be the rage this year all the cool kids are doing it..
    I thought you ran the low fender in the dry stuff, only ran high if there might be mud

    Price has come down then. The two years I was on it, 2010 and 2011, internet was not included. I'd write my stories, then drive out into the nearest town to find a wi-fi, upload stories, and press on. Was fun, but draining!
