    Would that be like the strange stuff one American golfer used to wear a few years back? Payne or something similar? Really bizarre kit, I can only suppose he was paid a lot by a manufacturer to use it so they could flog the stuff to other mugs?

    The late payne stewart was paid to wear clothing based on nfl teams his gear was not available for resale.....he was one of the best golfers in the world and died when his private jet crashed

    Theres a race here where the entrants all receive a bag of potatoes + respective points for positon.

    Disc brakes aren't really on the radar here as a big news story

    ^_^ I presume they don't race with the potatoes and the potatoes aren't King Eddy's

    Another credible explanation for his cut is a spoke but I fear confirmation bias has set in.
