  • Is this Emma Pooley, professional cyclist, Olympic silver medallist, Cambridge graduate, now studying for a PhD in something proper hard (geotechnical engineering - well, sound hard) in Switzerland?

    Yeah, she's pretty cool.

    That ring of hers looks like she'd whip ITB in Mahoosive Ring Wars every day of the week and twice on Sunday...
    Swim. Bike. Run. Yeah. That's what I used to do.

    Bike 1
    Bike 2-A

    That is a dinky P3 though. Or is it just the size of the ring throwing the scale off?

    Dunno. Pesky UCI commissaires telling us what is and what is not a bike. Gah!

    The RR course may favour Armitstead. She has a better sprint from a group. We'll see. We have a strong team for the women's RR this year :D

    "French veteran Jeannie Longo, 51, who has multiple world and Olympic titles and a total of 57 French national titles, finished just off the podium place in fifth, 43secs behind Pooley."

    Excellent race for Pooley. Longo, though, outstanding for completely different reasons - she certainly lives up to her name.

    commuting chat thread therefore we're allowed to go off-topic :wink:

    many chapeaux to Emma, particularly as it comes at the end of an excellent year.

    Not so impressed with BR as it hasn't made it to the news page when even the beeb had it as a main article ages ago

    Eh? It's been on the front page for several hours...

    Ah, the top (graphical) items don't seem to be published on the news page. Weird

    Someone show him the pass we got... for non-authorised but important news worthy items featuring pictures of lycra clad ladies even if they are no taller than oompa loompas. Took me ages to write it down on the application form too :D

    Congratulations to Spartucus for his 4th World Time Trial win. David Millar second and Tony Martin third despite a puncture.
  • jongingejonginge Posts: 5,945
    Excellent ride by Millar but there's no beating Cancellara. Gadzooks!
