    Maybe in a different world she'd have taken up cycling before she was 27.

    Always feels like the tandem events should have rule / equipment changes so that it is the rider with the disability that is the determining factor. My thinking is either the pilot should be from one of the other disability classes or some kind of device on the pilot's crank that reduces the power they can put out so they all generate the same amount.

    At present it feels like the governing factor on who wins is who has the best rider in an event that didn't make the Olympic squad.

    I have met one of the GB pilots, Matt Rotherham, a few times - he's good but he's by no means Olympic standard.

    Nice guy too. Spent a long time watching Milan San Remo with him in the Rapha cafe without realising he was a Team GB cyclist.
    He got gold piloting Neil Fachie in the 1000m TT 🙂

    Neil's wife Lora also got gold in the 3000m IP

    Just saw highlights of women's 800 wheelchair race and it's tipping down. Do they use different tyres in the wet?
