He’s apologised since for these crass comments Not done his squeaky-clean rep any favours with the cycling community either … 8 stone FFS, that’s anorexic. He should be supporting cycling generally, not undermining it. There’s way too much partisan, OTT discussion in the media relating to 'cycling, and ‘cyclists’ just now and he just added fuel to that fire.
Nothing wrong with a bit of Lycra IMO (what do you run in Wayne?) but it’s just practical for me - the complete deck-out in branded Rapha, Sky Team kit etc. just triggers an involuntary thought of ‘wanker’ whenever I see it
