British Cycling

by gazer117   March 13, 2014  

Am i the only one that gets annoyed by the British cycling emails being only concerned with over sportives and seldom mentions racing ? an example is an article this week with an abstract about nutrition for "Gruelling Sportives" yet makes no mention of racing at all. Racing isn't even mentioned in the news letter.. it's not like every one who races is a member of BC or anything... !

Last year they sent out a newsletter the week before the Lincoln GP, the oldest and most prestigious one-day race in the country, and didn't event mention it.

You're definitely not alone. I just delete them right away now, they never seem to have much helpful content.

I could rant all day about their archaic methods, don't get me started on women's racing! Tongue

I sometimes look thru them but often just click delete as well. I'm not interested in sportives.

Haven't bothered removing them from my spam filter.

There is generally nothing on interest in any newsletter to be honest...

...apart from the one, of course.
