 With skills like that, it is CRIMINAL that he is only paid a fraction of what footballer's are paid.

 except the marketing brought in by MTB is a fraction of what football gets so...

 @lognar: or the gate money, or the TV rights, or the sales, or the audience. Football generates a lot of money, I've always wondered why people don't want it to go direct to the players.

 Yeah I was just messing around. A 16-second clip used in marketing for a living legend and one of the all time greats of our sport... With literally one spectator (who probably didn't pay to watch!)

 @AlanMck: Obviously doesn't generate quite enough when premiership clubs are applying for government grants to pay their back room staff though. Piss taking bastards.

 @commental: oh aye, the sport is corrupt at the highest levels. Total joke.

 Yeah but there is no simple answer to that. The market sets the value of each worker based on their skillset. It is a bit rich to hear about these £18000 a year workers not getting paid on the same page as players crying about being forced into a 30% pay cut but... the players are in demand. Office workers not so much. People want to pay £100 a game to see top players... not office workers. In short yes, the clubs should be paying back room staff. They should also be paying players in full... or putting them on furlough.
Richard Branson with his $4.6bn fortune should be paying his workers too, instead of asking taxpayers to do it for him.

 @jaame: it's not tax payers money though, it's literally the Bank of England printing money. I agree with you in principle but that's not how the scheme was set up.

 Sam Hill. Click.

 Although foot out flat out definitely looks good, Adrien Dailly rode that section faster and cleaner clipped in all the way.

 Hush ya mouth. Wink

 @mi-bike: as would I, as far as I’m concerned who ever makes the most dust wins. Though I think they’re might have been a race on at the time?

 Marco Melandri didn't have to do this either, but we're all grateful that he did.

 Dam still be him by over 7 seconds on the stage, could not have been that fast...

 He defenetly made faster an straight rocky plus drop line waay wayy than anyonelse in this race... but those drifting high speed I give the credit to Sam.
