Yep, and this would be the most accurate summation

We have what I’d say a hot head in Pat Shaw and they have a hot head in Peter Kennaugh and at the end of day when two hot heads start tackling each other, you don’t get a good response from either.

“Whinger of the Week” award goes to that Pete Kennaugh, but most of us in the peloton have already have known this for a long time. He has a massive yappy mouth, but when an Aussie sledger like Pat Shaw has a crack at him, Pete has a cry about it. Imagine if he met a real Aussie mongrel, who would straight take his block off. Grow a set, Pete. And quit acting like your **** doesn’t stink.
TheSecret Pro


While the Pathetic Panderer of the Week award goes to the Australian pro writing for an Australian magazine about an Australian domestic moron. Grow up, 'secret pro', and write something worth reading for once.

There was some talks here about Hesjedal being the secret pro before last year's Tour, cause he was one of the few who filled the clues.

Guess what, Hesjedal was present at Down Under and at the Cadel Evans race like TSP mentions.

I'm not so sure. They supposedly include red herrings in the posts to make it impossible to deduce.

If you're a pro or recently retired ex-pro the secret pro would be incredibly easy to write. Even if you weren't actually at such and such notable race, all you need is a TV and some friends still in the business to share a couple of anecdotes. That's assuming it's written by one person.

The remark in the last one:
"I think it’ll be more exciting than the skinny dudes all comparing their watts per kilo against each other."

No climber would ever say that, red herring or not :D

I've felt that it's Wade Wallace (the owner/creator of CyclingTips) based on input from various pros for a long time and nothing much has come along to make me think otherwise.

Wallace isn't an ex-pro but he was a very decent domestic rider and has a fair few friends and acquaintances who are former and current pros, including Greg Henderson, Simon Gerrans, Baden Cooke, Cadel Evans, Koen de Kort and Simon Clarke.

Assembling these pieces from the opinions of the pros he knows and has access to would be very easy for someone like him.

You are pretty much correct, it's Wade with input from a few current and ex pro's
