    You're learning the hard way that taping the cables is the penultimate step, with taping the bars the last one. Get it all cabled up and working, then ride around the block and adjust the bar and lever positions until you're happy with them. Most of us ham-fisted home mechanics learnt the same lesson as you.

    @Tijs is correct to say that aiming the end of the bar at the rear brake caliper is a good place to start. But there is no right or wrong, aim to get something you're comfortable with.

    He definitely liked his pop.

    The landlords of West Berkshire will raise a glass tonight I’d imagine.

    How many WT teams are now funded by a sugar daddy - five, six?

    Mitchelton Scott
    BMC
    Sky
    Katusha
    Astana
    Quick-Step?

    Isn't it a natural consequence of Australia's appalling attitude towards cyclists? If the media treat them as second class citizens then it becomes a very hard sell to the size of company you need to attract to sponsor a WT team.

    The rowdier the tape, the more it’ll attract attention away from that stem.

    AG2R won’t look like they are wearing Superman undies.

    It was. But it was also cold and wet, with some wet snow so before and after the race was miserable. Couldn't tell you what happened with the weather during my race though.

    The course was very muddy, but most of it was wet mud rather than the claggy, sticky stuff that kills drivetrains at Frylands. Both the run ups had that loamy, claggy stuff though, which made the section after the first one virtually unrideable (although some tried). I like the course, I think it's a real challenge of your cx skills, but many others hate it.

    A bit of snow doesn’t put Norwegians off.
