High Entry Fees
« on: November 18, 2008, 07:05:24 pm »
TBH, £150 is prohibitive for me for LEL. That said, I probably wouldn't enter it if it was half the price, as it's not really my scene.

But - £150 represents a lot for a four day tour. To my mind anyway.

etape du tour this year also costs 150 quid just for entry
