Rule 5 is, of course, the Belgian rule...

Quote:
Gilbert's final preparation race this week will be the GP de Wallonie on Wednesday with its steep finish to the citadel of Namur. Back in his native Belgium, his hand injury sustained in a crash at the GP de Montreal proved not to be a concern. Even during the race, as his teammates brought him back to the front, Gilbert reportedly told them: "I am tougher than the tarmac."

Surely they only control somewhere between 20% and 50% of the purse stings Wink


Would that be at most 30% if the tax lawyer had set up a few (entirely legitimate, of course) offshore trusts?

Or would this be self-defeating if that resulted in the tax lawyer then controlling less of the purse strings?

Absolutely, he's got one of those faces you just want to punch.

i am strongly in support of rule #24
However may i add further in that this should also be the case for elevations to be stated in meters.
