Bike.com | Baden Cooke Stage 8 diary : I'm feeling confident

Current green jersey Baden Cooke posts an update to his rider's diary at Bike.com.

With this green jersey on my shoulders, the Tour has been a dream so far. We’ve now worn all the jerseys at Fdjeux.com: yellow with Brad McGee, polka dot with Christophe Mengin and I wore white before the team time trial. There has only been one day, stage 6, that not any of us was wearing a specific jersey.

Prologue winner Bradley McGee has been having trouble keeping his energy up; Cooke calls it hypoglycemia, while elsewhere McGee calls them hunger flats or 'the bonk'.

I'm doing a french project on le tour de
france. I know barely anything about the
meanings of the jerseys etc, but now I
am slowly coming to terms with their
importance. So I'd like to say: BaDeN
CoOke RoCks. Go AUSTRALIA!
