Yeah bro. They were generally cutting to riders at about the 3:45 mark, just out of the wooded section. It was all pre-recorded footage for the women's in the top section, they didn't bother at all for most of the men's field

If there's any argument regarding the benefits of clips on a pedally track like Fort William, it's worth noting that out of the top 6, Hill and Blenkinsop were both on flats. Blenkinsop deserves massive credit for his achievement, 5 seconds looked like a comfortable lead for Hill, Peat couldn't touch him, then Blenkinsop came in only a second off

While Kudos are needed, do note however the time they both lost on the last split to the finish. 2 seconds is a chunk of change

It would be a good point, however some for the shit that the guys are wearing is far far far worse than skinsuits. They need to look in teh mirror before they stepout, rather than worrying about their undersized dicks in a set of lycra

Acutallyno. That sort of thing, while not to most peoples tastes, is cool, as was done for charity causes and the breast cancer colour is pink. So I'm down with that outfit, Sam's well rad for doing that.
but I do have an example... Bry Atkinson. I mean seriously WTF!!!!
