    I have recently been enjoying Spanish brand Tan Line and German brand Biehler. Both attempt sustainable manufacturing are of excellent quality and I found reasonably priced (that is until Brexit shitshow which now means paying import tax).

    A very close friend of mine is senior trackside aerodynamicist for Merc. To end speculation; itโ€™s the floor.

    Totally the right decision. Once you recover you'll never notice it. At least I never do. The hang up that hip replacements are only for old people is silly. It a medical procedure for whoever needs it. You needed it. As I say I actually have never stronger for it. That might be a result of all the right physio and I still do reformer Pilates and all manner of core work which I should have been doing years ago. TBH

    Give me a shout if you need/want any advice or just reassurance.

    I did. Be 7 years ago in July. It was the result of a crash. But it was brilliant (not the crash, the replacement). I have to admit that I was covered under private health care so had a pretty good surgeon/treatment and physio at the institute of sport but I was back on the bike by September. The worst part for me was having to sleep on my back for a few weeks. But other than that it was a great success. Haven't looked back since. In fact I think I'm stronger than ever and the only downside is I set off the metal detectors at airports. You'll be fine. Do everything the physio tells you to do. Nothing more, nothing less. Heal fast. XX
