  • World's TTT1 year 12 weeks agoTo win the stage you needed

    To win the stage you needed to be confident in your picks and pick two each from the top four and one from the fifth team. Being cautious and spreading your picks around to edge your bets was a safer choice but always going to score less the the people going all out and making the right picks.

    Me too. I thought it was rather predictable for the people who did their homework. Only the 5th team was somewhat difficult to guess.

  • Tour of Britain Stage 8: Bradley Wiggins seals overall win, Mark Cavendish takes the stage1 year 12 weeks agoThe Petacchi-Cavendish combo

    The Petacchi-Cavendish combo looks set to be a force to reckon with - bring on the TdF! Quite funny to see how Petacchi needs to be careful to time his effort or he's over the line first.

    What was going on in Peter Williams' mind? Quite right the commissaires relegated him in the 2nd sprint, bit embarrassing though for the local IG Sigmasport team.

    A great Tour of Britain with exciting racing and showcasing some brilliant homegrown talent.

    Just a heads up. I've removed every rider from the rosters while I run through the ITT start lists, that means there are currently no riders available. That is intentional as I start to work on the proper startlists.

    Scores updating. Only 35 joint winners (I was expecting more). I was one of the joint winners and my standard team (all of 6 points behind thanks to having 2 Radioshack and 1 Greenedge rider instead of the other way around) was 89th.

    Given that the Worlds is a competition across three races the fact that a lot of people got similar points isn't the end of the world, you can't win this fantasy comp by doing well in the TTT (much like in a real race).

  • David Cameron backs cycling as he helps open bike shop in his constituency1 year 12 weeks agoThis is one we'd be better

    This is one we'd be better doing over a beer stumpy but saying it wasn't labours fault it was the bankers is akin to a prison governor leaving the jail unlocked and then blaming the prisoners when they escape and commit more crime. It wasn't a secret they were greedy bstds, that's why they should have been more closely regulated, and I speak as a former HBOS employee who used to receive advice each month on how to justify selling an inappropriate solution to a client because it would earn us more bonus.

    Anyway, waaaayy off topic, enjoy the racing and it looks like I'm voting lib dem Crying

    I always find this stuff ridiculous. Drivers were taking photos and videos of her while driving - and the police are pondering charging *her*? What about charging every one of those drivers with careless driving, or whatever the Stateside equivalent is?

    Quick question:

    If Pat McQuaid gets re-elected, will the UCI not forcing the current men's teams to set up women's teams still be Brian Cookson's fault?


    Yes, as it is an idea he dismissed (along with a minimum wage) in his current role as President of the UCI Road Commission. If Brian wants include Womens' Cycling promotion as a manifesto pledge, it is only right that he should answer the question "well what have you done so far?"

    (Still better than Pat though.)
