Smart and fast moving Marketing executives have saved the Tour De Fraance from total and complete disaster by announcing they are to sponsor next years Tour.
William Danson Senior Marketing Manager for the Chopper Brand explains: "Clearly the whole ethos and spirit of the Tour has been totally dragged through the gutter over the drug cheats and the ridiculous technologies employed. Our deal is very simple. We pile up 50 Choppers.They are all the same, all the same colour, simple gears. The riders all start on the base line, we shout go, they all run over, jump on and off they go."
The Tour De France Marketing Team are enthused by the development.
It will open up the Tour to a wider audience, and we will also be including specialist trick riding stages.
There has also been a strong representation from the skate board association to allow freestyle skate borders to compete and have their own competition as well as compete in the tour.
Team Nadralone Boss Steffan Gruendenwalderstein who represents the Professional Cyclists Association has condemned the plan.
