The BCU have had to hastily pass off Philip Hindes addmission that he crashed on purpose in qualifying as 'a joke'.
That was from Radio 4 this morning.
Last night was hilarious in the Velodrome when Jill Douglas (BBC) asked him what happened in qualifying, he more or less addmitted crashing to get a restart...
Jill " Oh, so that was some Kidology going on then?"
Phillip " Eh?"
Jill " So you pulled a fast-one?"
Phillip " Oh yes, we wanted to get the fastest start possible!"
Genius. I love all this lost-in-translation stuff but I am pretty sure Dave Brailsford has already sat him down and talked about what you do and do not admit on telly!
