    ... the truth hurts... still, I think offering Standard Players the choice of whether to a) play the game for the prizes with expiring transfers or b) play the game just for fun with non-expiring tansfers is a good one! Smile

    If you post commercial video on a forum, and it's shit, expect criticism. Telling your customers to lighten up doesn't reflect well on you as a brand either!

    No. I had those but could have done with Atapuma as well. Evans and Trofimov beat Scarponi and Pirazzi. The rest the same.

    Got an Alien II; loads of stuff that you will never use + unnecessary weight to carry.

    My strongest recommendation would be to try and find one where the actual tools are NOT made of chrome vanadium; trying to keep it rust free gets more than a little boring Yawn

    Try and work out what you will actually need - I think most people clean their chain often enough to know if it's about to let go - and, if possible, something light that will not rust!

    They DO and WILL ride with the older generation, that's how they test their legs and get into it. But the days of short 10 mile TT's are coming to an end with the younger guys.

    Because they all want to be the next Wiggo or Cav, they go testing their legs on longer Sportives and rides.

    Its not until you actually start racing and trying to get points for licenses that many turn to TT's for some prep.

    Being as your in Nottinghamshire, I'd guess there are Sportives on most weekends within a reasonable distance, that's where everyone seems to head now.

    I think you'll get stage top ten or better with that, assuming no penalties.

    True but I'd already had a 20 point hit and was banking on 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 to totally negate that , still c'est le vie
