"If you’re a cheat, you're a cheat, you're not half a cheat. You wouldn't say, 'I'll cheat here but I'm not going to cheat over there; I'll cheat on a Monday but not on a Tuesday." Dave Brailsford
And the BBC reports:
"'I just crashed, I did it on purpose to get a restart, just to have the fastest ride,' said the 19-year-old afterwards."
"But British Cycling said Hindes had been misunderstood due to English not being his first language, and Olympic bosses said they would not investigate."
"Teams are allowed a second start and Hindes appeared to say he intentionally crashed because the Great Britain team's start was not good enough."
Ok guys - an open post to a lot of you on here who have seen my posts over the last few days.The Hitch said:Leaving aside the coincidence of new to the forum Justin just happening to ask dw - The one poster who most strongly believes in the txema sky conspiracy, about the subject, it's clear on thus occasion it was introduced by the sky defender. Then dw posts his explanations, waiting in the wings, the usual suspects will soon try and blame the entire clinic for his postings.
Seems to me like dw was played.
Of course he did. Why do you think the staff said his comments were mis-translated ?Don't be late Pedro said:I'm curious. Did he actually break the rules?
So what rule did he break? It honestly don't know if it's against the rules? I am not talking bad sportsmanship but an actual rule.lllludo said:Of course he did. Why do you think the staff said his comments were mis-translated ?
Don't worry. Brits cheat like every other humans. For example they use testosterone before division 6 football games : http://kickoff.blogs.lequipe.fr/jeremy-funes-je-faisais-la-plonge/
However the Brits want to make the world believe that cheating is not compatible with their culture.
That also is cheating ... because everybody knows there's no such thing as a british culture
PR, obviously.lllludo said:Of course he did. Why do you think the staff said his comments were mis-translated ?
You could also argue that Hindes is not part of Sky.martinvickers said:PR, obviously.
It looked like bad sportsmanship. It WAS bad sportsmanship. Doesn't necessarily follow it was cheating i.e. breaking a rule - my understanding is that the rule on restarts is pretty poorly drafted, and leaves a lot up to the commissars' discretion.
Indeed, a few weeks later at the Paras, Jody Cunday was denied a restart he probably should have had, because of Commissars, and perhaps indeed, because they remembered Hindes.
Of course, you could just be racist land remind everyone that Hindes is a German ringer, but that would be bad sport ;-)
Do you then have February 29th every year in return? I miss that dateDon't be late Pedro said:Strangely, they don't have April 1st here in Australia. They decided to go straight to the 2nd to avoid bad luck. Never knew until I moved here.
