Laughing at French protests of unfair advantage must have relieved much track centre tension.


They weren't factory standard wheels. BC dodged a bullet on that one.


No, they weren't factory standard, they "were more round!". Brilliant.

More round and non-standard.

So the only thing to be resolved now is who's using Anti Troll as an alter ego?


Hand on heart I can say that I've never posted on here, nor the clinic before - just always been one of those lingering guests! Now I've taken the plunge, I might be a bit more active though. :twisted:

Egos without work




Nothing else to talk about. Maybe Cav will swear at someone again.

You're a mod, use your super mod powers and do something. Like move it to Mumsnet.

Absolutely - not a job to wish on anyone. Cookson always comes over as being pretty level headed though - just the niggly stuff about BC/Sky crossover and potential conflicts of interest.

Been talking to Conor McGrane, the Irish sports doc who was part of the attempt at CI to deselect Pat McQuaid (now there's a revolutionary council idea if you like) - they only failed on a technicality. Of course this could all be moot when ASO sell the Tour - I notice they've been talking about decoupling testing from the UCI again.

Apologies if there's a better thread to discuss this kind of stuff in? If so, please move my post to the appropriate place.

To be fair, there's about 15 pages worth of people asking why this theead's gone on so long... Another 20-odd pages of people desperately trying to suggest that there's a smoking gun whilst others have been arguing that they've seen no gun, smoking or not, or evidence of any bullets.... (although they did find a doc, and a few others, who may have had an old gun catalogue in their previous uniforms)...
So on that basis, we're still owed lots more pages of your actual "content", which I think we've established doesn't exist, so we can't have...
