    They replaced mine within a week. The faff was minor.

    A Bulgarian friend posted essentially an apology/ statement of embarrassment on their FB and has had comments from those in the stadium that the Bulgarians were set up. That the comments leading in to the match only served to antagonise racists and that it wasn’t anywhere like is being portrayed. That they are being broadly portrayed as racists feeding negative stereotypes of Eastern European’s.

    I’ve not found any footage with sound that supports mass wide spread chanting as eluded to, has anyone else?

    Is this narrative at all plausible?

    I’m currently running GP5000 in 32.
    It’s an XL frame but has a good amount of clearance. I might have an issue with the front Etap mech but we’ll see end of this week.

    Haha probably still not enough time to get in the required shape!

    Very envious hearing all of this! Life has somewhat got in the way since TCR.
    Still very keen to try out hill climbing but it’ll have to wait till next year.
    Are there age categories and if so what are they?

    Just that by the look of it, judging by other spikes.

    That’s my opinion. I’ve thought it for a while. Given how many people really top athletes have around them. Often the people above them have as much at stake and have been relatively immune, with athletes often jettisoned on a failed test.

    They do indeed. In gel form, seems very plausible that it could be applied without the athlete knowing contents. Much like Salazar’s defence that they had been spiked. Conformity and obedience is pretty easily gained. Again I suspect this has been the case with Team Sky.

    Farah doesn’t strike me as the most intelligent, but there isn’t much he can really say that will please the public at this point.

    I’ve long suspected his performances aren’t legitimate which was only reinforced by people I’ve met in more informed circles.

    Not just attractiveness but other characteristics. There were attempts possibly on going to ban tipping in NY on the basis of discriminative practice.
