If I was the Drops team owner, I’d be a bit miffed, as I expect the other team sponsors would be, too. (Tempur mattresses, Mavic wheels etc., etc.)
Aye, and lugging around a blimmin mattress for the sake of a sponsor is a not starter.I think aero is such a big part of the success of the Hour record that the choice of skin suit matters hugely.
Perhaps you can't have them in team colours.
As I posted at the time - she looked so fresh at the finish that it was clear that she hadn't absolutely turned herself inside out. We don't know how close she got to her limit but I'd bet that she has at least another 100 metres in her on a perfect day?
Worth noting that she did beat Jeannie Longo's record as well. That was set in the superman position.
On Eurosport they referred to that as the 'Superman or Superwoman position'... No it wasn't - it was what Superman looks like flying through the air. (Unless there was also a Superwoman comic book character, who flew the same way? )Superwoman position surely?
I thought the BBC Breakfast response to her level of effort was unnecessarily critical/patronising
