did you get away from him after the last overtake?
If yes, then yes.

Nice peddaling.

Nah, we both stopped at the lights, he turned left. I'd have had him if he didn't though.
clearly you where faster over both stretches of open road.
i think you can safely call that a scalp.

Tynan says no, surely a scalp is someone you overhaul and leave, if they've come from behind to start with then you've regained parity is all

Anyway it's not like for like is it

To scalp you have to overtake.
To be worth counting they have to be in with a chance, and going for it. (Or not in with a chance but really going for it as if they were.)

Yeah, he only got past me because he took some risks in traffic that I wasn't prepared to take. There's no doubt he was trying his hardest - on the drops, higher cadence, and *effort* pedalling style.

I was on that stretch of road as well at about 9.15 on Sunday (went the opposite direction about 8am but fewer cars then).

So a scalp is any overtake where I then stay in front? :ohmy:
