I just want to get home alive

14 May 2014 | 13:20 - By Matthew Keenan

Tour de France and Giro d'Italia commentator Matt Keenan lives in Melbourne, but is a regular visitor to Sydney for work. For this year's Giro d'Italia, he made the decision to bring the bike along for his month long stay in Sydney. Used to the pleasures greater Victoria has to offer for riding, by contrast, the past few days in Sydney have been nothing short of a baptism of fire. He can feel the anger. It's left him rattled, but all the more passionate to see things change.
