Hi all. Yes, some posts have been removed and a user suspended. I removed the post that led to the suspension and posts that quoted it. I haven't removed anything else. There wasn't an "announcement" post among them, I've just double-checked.
A general warning. We take a hard line when people belittle riders or celebrate when they suffer physical injury. We see this as being no different and will take the same action.
As a poster I hope Peter gets the same level of support that he would if this were a physical injury and we see him back racing bikes if and when he is ready to be. If not I hope he's back healthy and doing something he loves soon.
Had a few DNF's so far in 2019 and had his program changed - Health is an issue as it is for a few riders - Let's see how he performs ( from a limited preparation ) in the Ardennes in which he has a decent record.
