    Has anyone bought a battery replacement for Garmin from Aliexpress?

    Well, it happens that I work on railways so I know a bit about drainage as well. And you are right: for the relatively small investment, a lot can be improved. Drainage is "not sexy", so these projects don't get too much attention. Mostly it is reactive and only until something like that happens, it gets attention required, but then: most of the budgets are thrown on the responsive measures.

    Having said that, it is worth to weight it if the money spent to mitigate 1 in 100 years event is worth it and I personally think that I am happy to give up the right to use underpass once in a long while if it means the money is spent elsewhere more efficiently.

    This is not that simple as you might think: what event are you preparing for? There is a question if the underpass should be open at all times (massive drainage/water retention system - ££££) or we can accept it being closed once in a while. What is the future? Should we expect more of events considering change of climate? Add tight council budget, now affected by Covid, and the works like that by no surprise are at the bottom of the to do list.

    Can't wait for Netflix series! I expect there will be a lot of drama and fights

    Maybe not Qhubeka itself, but the team follows the rest and has a "gray" sponsor - Nexthash.

    I also wonder why? Is the finish line a rubbish zone? Otherwise should there be a penalty?

    On penalty note: Uran did a poppy paws for few seconds when attacked. Was there any comment from the ASO?

    I must have missed that but what are the blue tyres for? Initially I thought that these are turbo tyres mistakenly left, but then why on front?
