Just put the word spoiler in the title to the thread, refer to the event but not who may have won in the title then no one need to look at the thread.

The only reason I went on thread today was because I have now completed watching weekend recordings, but just opening 'on the road' and seeing the title thread gave a hint of the contents...

If you refer to another event ie P-R and master Tom then start a new thread with spoiler; Paris Roubiax in the title.... simples.

Please. Not everyone is as savvy as keeping away from the t'internet to avoid race results as I have had to become in recent years. :D

For such a young rider of diminutive stature she dealt with her opponents ruthlessly in the omnium.
Sitting at the back during the scratch race & boxing them at the critical moment was a treat to watch, & leading from the front from the beggining.

I completely agree!

+1 for Laura. Her 'Devil' technique reminds me so much of what Peter Post used to do with the field during the Skol Sixes many moons ago. A great lass. :mrgreen:
