harder they put a long staging, and that is a 50 mile stage. The

:03:02.:03:09.

question is, why? Why not? I love a challenge. It is one of the top five

:03:10.:03:14.

toughest races in the world, so I just want to take them off. He has

:03:15.:03:17.

north. It will come through the south`east of the country on track

:04:08.:04:10.

on Sunday but I will come to that in a moment. Tonight, fairly dry and

:04:16.:04:20.

quite cloudy as well. That will trap some of the heat in. As for Easter
