Podcast: Chris Ball Talks Discovery, ESO and the Future of World Cup Racing
This appears to be how pro sports works in the streaming era. The costs of growing the audience appear to outweigh the benefits of squeezing the faithful. Here in Seattle watching hockey games for the home team is $80/month - and some games are blacked out. There's no amount of money you can pay to see them all. It's almost impossible to discover that we even have a hockey team, let alone watch them play. But the games are packed because hockey fans exist in sufficient numbers already. Discovery has probably figured out that cycling grows organically via methods other than being discovered as a sport to watch. First you participate, then maybe you become a sports fan. Not the other way around. They have a lot of smart people whose career depend on getting this right. Consider that this is a terrible option for us perhaps, but it's the best option for them.

First Look: The 2023 Bold Unplugged Mixes Aggression With Integration
I love that it has bold design choices that are easy to identify at a distance, very similar to a BMW it will let us know at a distance that a high power entitlement field is en route. The ultimate luxury statement is owning a vehicle that signals to everyone that you absolutely do not maintain it yourself.

@Brxa13: Well things could have changed since I ordered in 2017. The duty was assessed by DHL. They hold your package. The duties are assessed by the contents, and there is like an $800 minimum, so you'll never pay a duty on parts or tools. But for bigger things above $2k, they will open the box, look up the duty code, and tell the shipping company to hold it for duty payment. I don't understand the "no duty" stuff at chain reaction but I think it will be very difficult for a company in the UK to control the US State Department. Maybe they just reimburse you if customs spots your box and play the odds.

State of the Sport Full Release & Comparison - Part 2
@Fill-Freakin: when there is an adjudicated adverse analytical finding from the biological passport, I’ll believe there might be some meaningful ceiling on blood boosting. To my knowledge it’s never stood up once in court arbitration sport (CAS) but I could be wrong.

State of the Sport Full Release & Comparison - Part 2
There isn't a test for re-injecting your own blood and there hasn't been since lance admitted to it on Oprah's show. If there's no test, then Bill Burr's "our doper beat your doper" becomes the status quo for the sport. Meanwhile all the normals on Strava can't figure out why their FTP isn't 400 yet. Anytime I bring this up in the comments these basic, known facts about cycling cause some sort of tirade/chorus of "yes we can test", so I'll cite sources in advance. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22119492/ "Autologous blood transfusions (ABTs) has been used by athletes for approximately 4 decades to enhance their performance. Although the method was prohibited by the International Olympic Committee in the mid 1980s, no direct detection method has yet been developed and implemented by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)." https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/ajh.26078 "The re-transfusion of stored erythrocyte concentrates is particularly attractive to high-performance athletes as this practice improves their oxygen capacity excessively. However, there is still no reliable detection method available. " We'll have competitive cycling when we have tests for doping.

Keeping both questions would provide a really interesting perspective on change (or lack thereof).

@laerz: The Economic Consequences of the Peace, Volume 2 By John Maynard Keynes London: Macmillan 1919 VI.13: Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. (...) Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.
