    It's probably been going backwards for 50 years but Criteriums and summer road racing and lack of care has really killed it. Putting the Suntour on in February may well be the final nail in the coffin.
    The big wheelraces were all professional events and since the amalgamation they have just been like old style amateur carnivals. I think the mindset of riders is different today to what it was even when I was riding. You rode the track in the summer and that was the natural thing but it has all changed.
    I don't think the running things like the Revolution series mid-week is going to help. Half a dozen wheelraces worth ten grand to win might!
    And it's a pity. Most of the greatest Aussie champs rode the track and there was nothing better in cycling than watching an Aces scratch race under lights with all the big guns firing.

    Yeah.

    Is the bridge between the chain stays coming back?

    It doesn't look quite as sht on the telly. It still looked sht mind, just less sht. Definitely stands out, which is what you want as a sponsor.

    Yeah, I guess, but do they need to assault our eyeballs to achieve their aims?

    Spotted out riding this morning...

    TVM jersey, big jaw, huuuuge quads, riding what appeared to be an unpainted carbon bike.

    I think he means guts as in bravery and tenacity - not 200Kg and looking like Mr Creosote...

    That was excellent, SB, I learnt so much. There was I thinking I'd need to add cantilever brakes and studded tyres - Now I know I just need to start smoking.

    When someone actually believes that Greipel can beat Cav head to head...

    Greip might seem like the fastest thing on two wheels right now but just like all those guys that have cleaned up everywhere (including the Giro) - the only thing like a Tour sprint is a Tour sprint.
