Whatever is happening at Wiggle seems to be passing on to cycle racing
The Wiggle-High5 women’s team appears to be on the brink, according to a report in Cycling Weekly.

The team’s registration for the 2019 season has not been submitted and no riders are currently under contract for next year, Rochelle Gilmore, team owner and manager, said. Furthermore, the team’s sponsorship has not been confirmed.

Haribos were included in the order I received today. However, the parcel had evidently been in a very hot van or warehouse for a while, because the sweets had melted into congealed sugary mass.

I still ate it though.

My order arrived today via RM with a small pack of Harribo's and a small envelope containing 3x High 5 Zero tabs.

Why do they bother with Harribos (or any other sweets for that matter)? What the heck is all that about?

Precisely! The last three sets they sent me, which I've carefully planted and watered ( pre-used bath water, of course) have shown not the slightest sign of sprouting into anything at all. They are deader than that mythical parrot!

An instruction book of at least a thousand pages, as with my latest new car, is the minimum one expects from such a reputable business enterprise as Wiggle. I do believe this exceptional and prolonged spell of over warm weather is playing havoc with their thought processes, and sending them all a bit barmy!

It's a nice touch. People talk about it (we are!)
