On page 2 of this thread I wrote the following: I've posted a couple of comments on Sayarer's blog re this. He didn't address these issues in his latest blog, which incidentally is in my opinion more hateful and less insightful than his previous ones. The guy is a good writer, but he is just so angry. A shame. Isn't there an old Athenian (or is it Roman) Proverb: If you want to destroy the Gods, first make them angry" Anyway, back to the point. Sayarer's figures just don't add up and he has been unwilling so far to address honest questions posed directly to him through his website. Maybe he will address these questions over the coming days, but in any case it will be GWR who will have the final say. My money is that Sayarer has not broken the record. Finally, I have to state again that while the record (whatever it is - 195 days or 175 days) is admirable, and well done to anybody who cycles around the world irrespective of how quickly or slowly they do it, these record attempts are second rate compared to the likes of Erik Straarup or Nick Sanders.
