Re: SPOTY 2017

Why do people bang on every year about the "personality" aspect? In the context of the show personality simply means "famous or notable person" which is one of the two common definitions of the word. The name of the show is simply of its time. It would be called Sports Person Of ...

Re: Tour Of Britain Stages 7a & 7b *Spoilers*

Great atmos arouns Bristol today. TT was enjoyable and even at my viewing point about 6km in you could see Tony Martin was pushing hard. Wiggo in full lap of honour mode. I saw most of the riders in the TT and he was the only one I saw on a completely standard road bike. Also ended up in the final g...

Re: Lizzie

Wonder what her excuse will be for her next missed test? Wont be her fault anyway. We won't hear about it. As far as I'm aware the missed tests for athletes who 'only' miss two tests are never declared publicly. Which to be fair, is one small aspect in Lizzies defence here - if that tester had trie...

Re: Rio BMX and MTB **spoilers**

The rocky bits looked technical enough to me - technical enough to put me off the idea of ever taking up MTB racing anyway - a couple of those falls looked nasty. Not exactly a spectator sport though for me - don't think I'd tune in if it wasn't the Olympics - ended up fast forwarding the second ha...

Re: Rio BMX and MTB **spoilers**

The randomness of BMX generated as a result of crashes is probably smoothed out a bit over a whole season of events or even the World's every year. On a 4 year cycle though the carnage of the event seems too much. Does not work for me I'm afraid.

Re: Rio BMX and MTB **spoilers**

Phillips qualifies in 10th which I assume will make for tough progression. Hoy was emphasizing that it wasn't the end of the line if you qualified low, I guess because once other riders are around you it's how you start and racecraft that matters more than how you go in the rest of it. All the same...

Re: Rio BMX and MTB **spoilers**

My big issue is that cycling has to drop one discipline to make room for another whilst swimming appears to have a virtually limitless programme. If one athlete can win 6 or 7 medals in a single Olympics then the sport has too many similar events. I know we always have this discussion but no event ...

Yep you can prove anything with "facts" as you call them and they are not welcome here. What we require is speculation and jumping to conclusions.

If we all rocked up with "facts" this forum would last 5 minutes.... ;-)

Re: soon to be 9 year old new bike options

Helmets sadly have become increasingly uncool but I feel confident that the GoPro craze and social media/ video world we live in can bring back the bike helmet again, I'm a huge fan! Maybe this is something they could spend their birthday money on? Uncool or not my kids wear helmets. I make it quit...

Re: soon to be 9 year old new bike options

My kid's first bikes were Islabikes (Cnoc 16 then Beinn 20L). Latest bike for my ever growing son though was the Frog 62. Superb machine - built as well as the Isla, nearly as light but with some nice extras thrown in for free - touch up paint, mudguards, spare tubes and extra set of tyres.

Re: What to do with my 3 year old?

Pedalling can be tough to master - my kids ended up learning it quite well due to trikes etc at their nursery so when it came to moving from balance bike it went quite smoothly - - but still involved a fair bit of running alongside to correct the most serious wobbles or keep their speed topped up wh...

Re: Rio BMX and MTB **spoilers**

I see XC MTB and think "why was this picked over downhill?" I see BMX and think "we lost the Kilo for THIS?" All that aside - best wishes to all Team GB riders. BMX is a complete lottery at times (makes Keirin look like the TP) but with Phillips we have a genuine BMX heavyweight...

Re: Rio Olympic Track events *Spoilers*

Dyer showed the chief commissaire, Germany’s Alex Donike, the BC footage, arguing that it was “too close to call” to disqualify Kenny. I'd rather they just left them to it tbh. The person who MAKES the final call is not even trackside, so completely shielded from any pressure if any was applied. Lo...
