    or as long as it takes for a vet to be called out to shoot them. So 66 ponies died in agony last year alone after being hit by motorists. Maybe someone would like to photograph that.

    Have you never heard of Agisters? The subject of the forest ponies killed on the road is a very serious one but the fact that some visitors to the new forest believe that a vet comes out to destroy these poor creatures is hillarious!

  • Why don't you see Pro's eating bananas?1 year 12 weeks agoThe Feed Zone Cookbook has

    The Feed Zone Cookbook has some good things in it, and they mention that the riders like to have 'normal' alternatives to gels and energy bars to eat while on the bike.

    In that vein I made a nice little rice cake last week.

    Cooked medium-grain rice mashed up with banana and bacon bits, flavoured with a little maple syrup and then mix in a beaten egg and bake to set.

    In a few days or so when you've recovered do the same thing again but this time wearing a helmet.

    Go on then, do that with a helmet first if you're so confident - video and link to upload here please. What have you got to worry about ?

    Make sure you do it within the safety specification though i.e. less than 20km/h AND the rock is kerb-shaped, not sharp.

    What would be the difference ?

    You might have a bit of a bruise without the helmet. You'll still have a headache either way.

    If it was going to kill you then the helmet wouldn't save your life.

    It's this almost fetishistic belief in the power of helmets which astounds me.

    Everything has design standards. Seat-belts stop you being thrown through the windscreen, but are not so good if you get hit by a meteor. Helmets protect you from bumps and scrapes but are not so good in a traffic accident.

    I've got

    Sagan

    Mollema
    Henao
    Vanendert

    Weening
    Betancur
    Paterski

    Bring in Purito for the next one. Not sure how bothered he'll be about this one, more of a warm-up I think! Mollema has got good form and something has to go right for Sky eventually. Henao in good form as well. Glad Vanendert is not in the break, he can do better than that. Reckon it'll be Sagan Gilbert 1 2.

    Forgot about purist!
