Sounds about right. They had so little money in those days. Well more to the point, nothing was spent on the cyclists. Skin suits back after a meet sort of stuff. The indoor bikes were like those old exercise ones with the large fan and cage on the front wheel!Captain Serious said:I heard Neiwand say that the only contact he got from Cycling Aus after the minute he left was from an AIS staffer who said they wanted his bikes back.
I obviously don't know if this is true
It was really sad for Neiwand. When you're a 200m fly track sprinter what can you do post Olympics? Can't do the road. Just drink.
And edit: then there was Pate and Hall. Cyclingtips should speak to those two. Pate was left out of Sydney and went on a 3 year bender. Very sad also.
I assume this is why British Cycling has psychologists etc. in their group. Makes good sense if they do.
