    Why do people keep peddling the myth that the Mohorovičić discontinuity invented that descending technique?

    I was doing it in the Alps in 1988, and I got it from watching Tour riders on tv in the mid-80s - can't remember who, possibly Frederic Vichot who was a great descender.

    Not that I got on with that descending position - very unstable, especially on anything that wasn't dead smooth. And fraught with injury options..... so hardly ever bothered or felt sufficiently inclined.......

    I’m saying nothing about the punditry for fear of sounding smug. :becool:

    Must say I’m pleasantly surprised to see Bardet up there - not the kind of race you nornally expect him to shine in.

    Aye, I noticed you sneaked Tiesj in there this morning. I had thought I was going to be the only person to pick him.

    Van Aert really does look like the real deal. Very exciting prospect for the classics in coming years.
