#TrollDJ is the Twitter hash tag being used to comment on the music being played as the the SBS Tour de France coverage returns after an add break. There is a fair discussion regarding what the song is (thanks to Shazam this is not too difficult to confirm) and the relevance to the montage footage that the music has played over.

* TDF rating well for SBS.
But there was good news for SBS as Cadel Evans’ victory ride broke records again. Tour de France averaged 704,000 viewers (for its late night broadcast) exceeded Saturday night’s 690,000. It also pushed SBS’s share into double figures for the night.

It’s not often you’re publicly abused before breakfast. But that’s what happened after my Today Show appearance when I exclaimed that I didn’t understand the huge deal about Cadel Evans and thought the coverage of sporting victories was disproportionate. My skin is pretty thick but I will admit the abuse came as a bit of a shock.

Reckless P-platers have often thrown bottles at Cadel Evans when he’s training along the Great Ocean Road near his home town of Barwon Heads, Victoria. Maybe they’ll think twice now, just in case that anonymous lycra-clad figure on the road is a Tour de France winner.

Congratulations Cadel Evans!
One of his teachers (Orietta Wheatley, now retired) recalls in Year 10 during a session of Peer Support Leaders Training, students were required to bring to school “Something of Value”. When it came to Cadel to show what he had brought for the activity he said: “I couldn’t bring my thing of value because it’s too valuable”. He was referring to his bicycle. Instead, he had brought his helmet.Â He proclaimed on that day, that his ambition was to become a World Champion. The rest of the students were in awe of this young man who was quietly spoken but obviously ambitious and very clear about his ultimate goal. He had made an impression!
