    Wiggins’ attempt to paint himself as the victim of a conspiracy or suggesting it’s some type of personal vendetta really doesn’t sit well for me in the post Armstrong era. Too many bad memories from that time of Armstrong playing the same cards.... But. Where’s the evidence that allows the select committee to make the judgements they have? I don’t see it. Shame Sutton suggesting he bent the rules to near breaking point? Well that doesn’t make Wiggins look good, but it still doesn’t show him cheating. I do think it taints Wiggins achievements, on the road at least. Which is a shame. Sky look bad. Really bad. That whole Jiffy bag thing stinks to me. If it’s all completely innocent they’ve given there detractors a load of free ammo. And if there’s more to it then what they’re saying then they all deserve what they get.

    Froome... The longer this thing rumbles on the worse it is for everyone. Can you imagine if he enters the tdf with this still hanging in the air. I don’t fully get the situation. He hasn’t been charged with anything yet so it’s bizarre. When does he get charged? Just seems really odd.

    Yeah, I was thinking of coming up with a similar excuse so I could go much quicker on Saturday, 4 days rest being much better than two.

    Agreed.
    Re Froome-

    At the moment it seems there is no evidence just the stench of arrogance and dishonesty. I think that having set themselves up as the epitome of decency and integrity amidst a culture of micro management and data, they (Brailsford?) feel they don't have to answer to anyone, perhaps because, if they did anything unethical other teams were doing a lot worse. That said, from an evidential point of view , a DCMS committee report relying on an unnamed whistle blower and unable to cite any hard evidence is not far off worthless.

    Shall I just start the ride at 7 @BILL S ? As we know it works?

    I promise to try and remember to turn the weather off (I did last time, wasn't my fault etc etc!)

    Good idea Paul.
    I still suggest the rest of us find the ride by using the ride name filter and search "Spijkenisse"
    If that doesn't work then try "bridgy".

    ATM typing in "cyclechat" finds @peterob getting in a sneaky warmup :smile:

    So hopefully no problems finding the ride tonight.

    I'm feeling a bit down today, sore throat and the like, so definitely won't be joining the ride. HID not been good at night and we're lacking sleep so immune system taking a beating xx(

    I know what you mean by lack of sleep... my little one starts shouting as loud as she can at 2am, 4am and the 6 am every night... its like a fire alarm going off...

    Could not participate today. Apparently it is frowned upon to sneak off whilst entertaining dinner guests. At least that is what my wife tells me. She is often right but on this one I’m not entirely convinced. Who invites people on Thursdays anyway....?!
