There is a quiet that descends in a newsroom when a big story breaks.
Forget the Hollywood clichés of cigar-chewing editors shouting…
L’Ardoisière sounds much better in French than English and translates as “Blackboard Woman”. For years time gaps in bike races have been communicated by the simple use of chalk on a blackboard held up to the riders from a motorbike.
In recent years the motorbike’s been less important with the use of radio radios but it’s remained a useful publicity vehicle.
Now the blackboard is going away and Paris-Nice this weekend will see an electronic display used on the back of a motorbike. It’s already been tested in the Tour of Portugal and the system is designed by Portuguese firm Full Sport.
I guess this gives a whole new meaning to burning the candle at both ends?
