As Adam mentioned, I'm the tight Scot looking for free stuff, no one else on the team particularly likes the idea, possibly (read totally) my fault for using Freespeed as a bit of a template.
A bit ironic that you are using the template of freespeed. Isn't that run by the designer of the pirate kit? Works for them and they have had great success, but please don't start riding team Planet X bikes
I dont get how getting a few discounts on magazines, energy drinks etc is any different than clubs do all over the country. My old club used to get a 40% blue seventy discount because of a contact. It's hardly an issue! The way I see it, Gary has sorted out this discount for his new team and decided to pass it on to the many pirates that could benefit! No selling out there, if you want to use it, use it, if you don't then don't!
Barley - have you ever criticised Rosey for having D and M cycles on his pirate kit? He gets looked after well by them so shows his support by having their name on his kit, (not a criticism of Nick at all, I agree with him doing it). Does that make him a sell out?
off to get my Tri Europe subscription - even more ironic on a triathlon world website
