Lancaster "spitting chips" after Stage 2

Aussie Slang dominates reportage of their home boys at the Tour in Cadel Stays Cool On Tour de France. Even the "on" as opposed to "in" of the title threw me. What are they, New Yorkers?

Here are my fave's:

"Cadel Evans was content but fellow Australian Brett Lancaster was spitting chips after the first bunch sprint finish on the Tour de France."

"'The guy needs to pull his head in.'"

"Roulston came a cropper on Sunday when he crashed with 70km to go, according to his team, then he missed a split second decision which meant he didn't pull as planned in the lead-out."

Ville Etape puts your town on the map

Ever heard of Tonnere? You will now. The 2009 Tour's 12th stage begins there. It's a distinction that Tonnere's mayor hopes will make the town known the world over. Not just for their amazing 300 meter deep well. While it feeds the town, townspeople are hoping the Tour feeds the town as well.
