Woohoo for Snaily and on hold woohoos for the dragon-to-be
Re Lance: unfortunately Spence as Noggs will tell you, back in the day when Lance was doping so was everyone else so in a way it was levelling the playing field - although that is not an excuse for doing it of course (before you get cross with me). There's a great graphic showing the top 10 finishers in each Tour with the ones who'd doped crossed out and most years you'd have to get down to about 7th or 8th to find a clean (to the best of our current knowledge) rider......
Regarding his denials he was always very specific when asked if he had doped and replied he'd never failed a drugs test.........he never came out and said "I don't dope...... obfuscation at it's most obvious
I don't condone what he has done for one minute - nobody likes a cheat at anything - but I always find myself asking if they had all been clean instead of all doped, would the finishing order have been the same. The fact is unless you have tremendous talent however much you dope you won't win....... Of course we'll never know.....
Yums - cycle carefully it's ice and blowing a hooly out there even if the promised Armageddon has yet to arrive..... Chrissie Wellington thought she'd be ok on her bike in similar conditions and ended up in plaster as a result
Yep Noggs - snow tyres (and really severe conditions if no chance of meeting tarmac, snow chains) are the way to go
I had the afternoon off - yay....... - met up with pal for a 5-hound walk (Ruby refused to go!) and then back to hers for a late lunch of baked camembert and fresh bread followed by toffee pavlova and chocolate liquers...... Seems a good way to me to start the weekend
Glad to hear you've got around ok Sue as you were the only WAISTer in the "red zone" and good to hear Alfie is making the best of a bad job by keeping Sluggie company
Now where is this bleedin' snow we're supposed to be buried under ??? Maybe we used up all our allocation earlier on in the week
I agree with Noggs and Podds ... it happensI am still in my pyjamas, I am not going far today, I have done my ironing and a weeks training plan and now me and the GPO are sharing a hot water bottleI am glad to see the parole board have certifed Mr C, saves me the job.Good luck to the impending dragon !!
How's the lurgy? I'm trying to avoid the school sickness bug currently which has seen me surrounded by green-faced candidates all week - I do my best to be at least a little bit sympathetic......but only from a safe distance
Sorry Pipples, not going - and as it turned out my dad is working tomorrow anyway - (outside!! Brrrrrrrrr). Going to stay here and be cosy instead.
Not too bad Podds, I think I frightened it off ... classic 2 days coming, 2 days snot and 2 days clearing off I hopeI will get out and bike up to Murph tomorrow or I may well walk up through the woods, wont get a lot else done so I may as well make a day of it !!
To my mind, he didn't "level the playing field". The playing field was never level but that doesn't excuse his cheating. And it certainly doesn't excuse his bullying and controlling behaviour.
His future behaviour will show the profundity of his staged apology.
I hope he is never accepted back into organised sport.
Now that wil be interesting to see XB
We did that last year, I say 'we'There is no way the council can grit each and every road is there? Its just asking for help ... I dont see the problem
You can do mine for me ... I'll lend you the YakTracks!
I'd like to do 7 miles I shall settle for just getting out of my pyjamas
Take a chill pill, Spence. The 4x4 smug brigade can help people who can't get out of their drives or who have not been able to use public transport.
They never grit our estate and there's a big slippy hill that catches a lot of people out.
It's all part of the big society. A good part.
Vaseline on her paws Spence .. prevents the clogging
Mind the ice on your bike Melds!!
Still awaiting Armageddon here - was supposed to arrive hours ago.................
