    That is extremely old news.

    it's not a scandal. It's Lord Brailsford putting in place some long-term marginal gains. His new breeding programme assures us of gold in 2036

    and......I'm going to regret saying this....a nicer, sweeter couple one could not imagine. Tears of joy (not mine - I'm a chap) were shed at DZ villas when the news came out

    liaisons between the riders at british cycling have never been off-limits anyway, unlike relationships between riders and coaches. i remember brailsford or someone saying how they knew when the riders were 'at it', as the male cyclists performance tended to show a slight drop, whereas the female riders showed a slight performance gain…

    Cradle snatcher Kenny! I can see the Equipe headlines already "BC eugenics programme"

    Kenny's performance drop doesn't seem to have been very noticeable, though, does it? Will Baugé now have to live like a monk for a while?

    Disgusting - whatever's the world coming to!

    It would never have been allowed at the 1896 games, when Queen Victoria was on the throne!

    A few good training sessions are what's needed. Give 'em something else to think about and spend their energy on.

    And cut off the hot water supply to the showers too, cold ones should dampen their desires a little.

    Next thing there'll be mixed pursuit riding competitions.

    (I'm only jealous - good luck to them both)

    Jason is young, good looking, lovely bloke, a world class rider with medals to prove it, and is with the lovely smiling Laura. I should hate him....^_^

    Oh, go on then.

    I'll ride for GB and suffer the drop in my performance if I can help the ladies to improve theirs.

    I'm nowt if not gallant me...

    You can imagine what I walked into in the office the morning after this.

    It's worse that I'm old enough to be her father but when it's Boltons Jason Kenny...and I was the first Jason Kenny in Bolton...well you can imagine the piss taking!
