    I agree that something needs to be done about this Shell business, but I don't think abandoning club riders is it.
    The track league I am racing in started this autumn, and ends next spring. LFGSS CC not renewing its BC affiliation could leave me and similar riders somewhat in the lurch, having to figure out which other club to join, pay the membership fees, and fork out for new kit-assuming any is available-and money still ends up going towards BC anyway.
    It strikes me that what would be a dictatorial decision for LFGSS CC not to renew its BC affiliation flies in the face of the club's stated aims of enabling riders to compete without having to join other clubs.
    Not renewing would be like flouncing out of a meeting because you don't like what is being said, and in the process removing your chance to have any further say or hear more.
    It would be at least decent if a workable alternative was presented to riders rather than just abandoning them.
    Not renewing weakens the club's position, and removes the possibility of dissent from within.
    I propose renewing affiliation so club riders can still compete under LFGSS, AND getting the club jerseys reprinted with (with permission) Darren Cullen's hell logo on the sleeves in place of the shell logo GB riders have on their sleeves.
    I don't want to get worked up and argue about this, I'm just trying to stay calm and concentrate on winning races.

    just in case anyone else wants an answer to “i’m looking for a functional tracksuit to keep me warm between races; i want it in lfgss colours and actually functional, ie. can don without doffing spd-sl shoes, and is warm; any ideas? not too concerned with budget”

    i found and ordered:
    italian army waterproof tracksuit, and
    swedish army tracksuit.
    got home from work just now to find them arrived just in time for league tomorrow.
    the italian one has better matching colour, funky stripes, and full length leg zips, but it’s pretty clamy.
    the swedish one is less of colour match, but it’s a much more comfortable fabric, has a nicer cut, and also clears spd-sl shoes with its ankle zips.
    both very affordable.
