Billy Casper is a boy with nowhere to go and nothing to say,part of the limbo generation of school leavers too old for lessons and too young to know anything about the outside world.He hates and his hated.His family and friends are mean and tough,his only companion is his kestrel hawk trained from the nest,and like himself trained but not tamed,with the will to destroy or be destroyed.

"Character is the firm foundation stone upon which one must build to win respect. Just as no worthy building can be erected on a weak foundation, so no lasting reputation worthy of respect can be built on a weak character."

Both riders had very different fortunes , Ric finished 23rd on GC whilst poor old John smashed into a bollard breaking most of his teeth.
Apparently his bike fitted quite nicely into a suitcase .
Great story many thanks Gayle.

I use to watch the TDF on telly with my dad but to get to watch a pro bike race live, as a kid there was nothing better.
It was known back then as The Milk Race and it's where I got my inspiration and passion for riding and racing my bicycle.
SBS are showing each stage of ToB every night at 7.30
Check it out the scenery is beautiful
