Tweedlove Bike Festival Announces Details for 2019 Event
This doesn't sound like the guys at Tweedlove. They are a good bunch of folk with a passion for biking. their events are always great, even with weather upsets. your question is of course entirely valid, but from what I can see you are getting a hell of a lot for you £10. looks to me like you are getting: *live music *demo day on fancy bikes *an uplift of some description *access to trade tents etc *bike festival fun times * mebbe even a free beer I paid pretty much the same to get into the sea otter classic a few years back..... got no demo day on fancy bikes , got no uplift, got no music, no free beer....but it was well worth it (i covered the whole of the rear of my van in stickers from the event!!!!) . pretty sure tweedlove will pull this off just as sweet. and as for getting you blocked if we take what you said at face value..... how did you approach them about it......did you repeatedly ask the same thing, were you rude, did you type in BLOCK CAPITALS. proud business's like Tweedlove generally don't block folk for no good reason. Last i saw on their account they had replied honestly and openly to somebody asking that very question

Video: Reece Wilson Puts in the Hard Work in 'What Are You Chasing?'
@bizutch: , surprisingly simple. basically most editing suites have a chroma key function. you click on the screen footage the colour range you want to keep, then use nother part of the function to grey scale it to whatever level you want...basically down to black and white, and hey presto the the colour range you wanted/clicked on is still visible. works really really well with red, as its eye catching and natures natural visible colour range is blue/green. if you wanted to go black and white with green only showing on the rider, well thats a different kettle of fish, as your back ground (the foliage) will also be green. i assume thats possible but probably very hard to achieve neatly. pretty sure my editing suite can do 2 colour choices....say red and cyan and it would still work pretty well.

Exclusive: Richie Rude & Jared Graves Failed Drug Test at EWS France
@max2max: , well this i cant argue with. my point being these rules change through time when it suits the governing bodies..... so Oxilofrine might be perfectly acceptable and legal in 5 years when they realise everyone is on it. thus creating a grey area of discussion........hence the "food for thought" rant i had to put up in response to maxx-x's "speak before thinking" comment ...... but at the end of the day, if the rule is you are not allowed to take a carb drink during the competition, then......well thats the rule, doesnt matter how silly you think the rule is and doesnt matter when they change the rule after the fact. ..... you are right - at that given moment everyone needs to compete under the same test conditions

WHAT???? @maxx-x honestly! see folks like you, that have no idea about hard training and sports nutrition!!!!! your soapbox rant makes sense to the plebs that know fukk all about sport, much like Hitlers rants made sense to the plebs that knew fukk all about human ethics. getting 3000kcal out of a white powder is not normal because it doesnt exist. and your uneducated speech does nothing to clarify the truths in sports science. there is no athlete with a brain that doesnt focus on healthy eating first , then training and recovery , then basic supplement to keep them healthy like protein and carb mixes, then highly specifc training and recovery plans, before they get any where near specified subsatnces like beta alanine etc. never mind the illegal ones. however rules are rules....... but these rules are arbitary descisions made at some point when the previous arbitary decision become untenable. pre 1900 - it was seen as cheating if you trained for your sport in the olympics mid 1900s, if you were paid to do a sport it was classed as cheating in the olympics (research -Jim thorpe) 1930s, Russia and eastern bloc start sports schools, and the olypmics has to start changing it ideals of professional athletes mid 60s the banned susbstances starting in olympics mid 70s, caffeine was introduced to the banned list mid 80s, caffeine ban changed to stipulated amounts and professional athletes now allowed to enter 1988 - carl lewis and 100 other olympians fail drugtest - shortly after the rules were changed to his benefit 2002 - skier Alain baxter stripped of bronze medal due to having a cold/blocked nose and his brother buying the wrong type of nasal clearer from the pharmacy 2004, caffeine off the banned list........ a substance that is clinically proven to enhance athletes performance and increase metabolism, burn fat and increase focus. at what point do you consider the following cheating training for the sport eating healthy for the sport dieting for the sport taking protein to aide recovery in a demanding training schedule taking carb mixes during the event to maintain energy taking specialist suppliments like caffeine, beta alanine, glucosamine, condensed beetroot juice, arginine etc hiring a coach/trainer to get the best out of you hiring a massuer to deal with your ailments being on a team with chefs,doctors,physicians, masseurs and mechanics high alititude training to get more oxygen in blood barometric chamber to get more oxygen in the blood blood doping to get more oxygen in the blood taking EPO to get more oxygen in the blood those last 4 are important..... the first 2 are legal but cost a shit load to implement and thus only available to the rich teams, the last 2 are illegal but very easy and cheap to do........ a system in place where only the rich teams can benefit from getting additional oxygen into the blood. sorry thats my rant over

@kiksy: oooooooft. and this may mark the point where our governing bodies prove themselves to be wavering in their rules or holding steadfast. the implicatons and ramifcations are pretty big for the athlete and the organisation

@colincolin: thats not very nice. imagine how the criminal courts worked if we jailed everyone that some random poster on a forum aired their suspicions that "Xname" was a criminal.

@NotNamed: , simply not true. whilst i'm sure there are plenty of lazy buggers taking supps, theres plenty of folk destroying themselves daily, in the hunt for an extra 1 or 2 seconds taking supps.. the lazy fukkers arent interested in the marginal gains, and their supps are wasted on them, but the honed athletes that bury themselves daily are interested in the marginal gains, and their supps are pretty damned important to them. The correct supps, are important for recovery, and a numerous other benefit's that if you tried to match with food you'd end up putting massive amounts of weight on...... obviously the last thing any athlete wants....unless they are a sumo wrestler of course
