Smoke signals, semaphore and twitter.

It's get your dictionary out time folks.

Cycling journalists are up in arms and refusing to cover the 'doings' of certain riders following a statement that they will only communicate via smoke signals or semaphore.
French journalists spokesman Pierre Throughthewindow said 'there is no way we are going to learn a new language, we are a modern profession and using semaphore is a step back to the last century'.

He went on to say: 'As journalists we like to minimise our contact with riders, sorry, I meant to say we like to maximise our contact with riders and waving flags about will take up valuable time that could be better spent filling our faces, sorry I meant to say filing our stories with our editors.'

Further details are available on twitter, apparently.

Just found your blog. Agree with all of your comments. Frustration at the incompetence and lack of any moral fibre of the UCI, too much shit about LA, questions over the GTs and the joy of watching Cavendish. Good blog and excellent comments.

I think Lionel Binnie, at 'cycling weekly' is doing an excellent job asking the right questions. BUT, will he get any answers ?
