But Trump will still be mad. In fact, he'll be even madder! :o

Re: Giro d'Italia

All riders and staff at the Giro were tested for coronavirus on Sunday and Monday. A total of 571 tests were conducted. Sadly, Mitchelton-Scott and Jumbo-Visma have now withdrawn from the Giro after positive tests. Sunweb will continue for now although one of their riders, Michael Matthews, tested p...

Re: Is Trump Mad?

I think if I won money on Trump being re-elected I'd use it for toilet paper if I didn't burn it.

Re: Is Trump Mad?

Thanks. Makes you think. Probably has a financial interest or connections with the company. While he might be shrewd enough to add up a bunch profits and end up with a tax loss, he's never really seemed quite up to joined up thinking. Plugging a treatment derived from research using cells derived f...

Re: Cyclists on the road with two bikes, up to no good?

And to get this back on topic, does adapting a bike to tow another imply that the rider is up to no good? Plod walks to rear of bike, hands behind back, points to axle attachment on rear rack and says, "Allo allo allo, wot's this 'ere then?" :D I don't know, though - it would just be too ...

Re: Is Trump Mad?

Correct me if I am wrong but isn't one of Trump's drugs (Regeneron?) made from stem cells? So presumably the religious right will now have to vote against him. Regeneron is the name of a pharmaceutical company not a drug. Presumably he was given something made by them. Here you go: The emergency an...

Re: Cyclists on the road with two bikes, up to no good?

This is how you do it properly - Fred Blasdel, from Seattle, who posted on the Velocipede Salon, the framebuilders' forum, built his own rear rack incorporating a front axle. fred blasdel rear rack.jpg fred blasdel tow bike.jpg fred blasdel tow bike 2.JPG He said it would be a simple enough matter t...

Re: Giro d'Italia

Good piece in CyclingTips about bottle cages: https://cyclingtips.com/2020/10/a-simple-bottle-cage-rule-couldve-prevented-geraint-thomas-giro-crash/ It does surprise me slightly that I did 90ish miles of the very bumpy King Alfred's Way without either bottle falling out once, yet as soon as the Gir...

Re: Is Trump Mad?

He went mad on Twitter last night - not just Trump crazy but crazy Trump crazy - he was all over the place, presumably as a result of the meds, most likely the steroids, he's on for the coronavirus. This is where he left it - he'll not be up yet. Scroll through and you'll see what I mean. This is th...

Re: Worlds TT (spoilers)

I thought - perhaps wrongly - that the barriers at that point of the course were permanent and partially covered with the usual heavy padding. Accepting that events showed the padding to be inadequate, I don't see it as some sort of sexist discrimination to rectify it before the men's event. Exactl...

Re: TT Bike Handling (Chloe Dygert)

Guess what, the green padded barriers were extended for the men's TT the following day - the way they should have been in the first place. Scandalous. Thursday - Chloe Dygert losing control in the Women's TT thursday.jpg Friday - Wout van Aert (I think) in the Men's TT - the padding now extends beyo...

Too many puns on here, trying to get back on course with a joke :wink: .. Saw someone sitting outwith a tavern, he was looking sorry for himself 'Alright mate? You got no money? May I buy you a drink?' quoth I 'Money I have, but sadly no thirst at the minute!', he bleated That's a bit like, "I...

Re: TT Bike Handling (Chloe Dygert)

Further to the above, it's just been confirmed that tomorrow Annemiek van Vleuten will defend the title she won last year in Yorkshire, thanks to her (somewhat unconventional!) team... :D https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EixpKcaX0AAbF2b?format=jpg&name=medium https://twitter.com/AvVleuten/status/1309...
