Good Month / Bad Month: Fairness, Ohlins, Fuji, Sending It, & More - November 2018
Sleep should be banned! And as for getting into the pants of an attractive young lady, the high that provides is better than cocaine. Clearly, fornicating should be on the banned list.

This is my theory. Someone offered ohlin a fuck ton of cash, and he took it.

@Matt115lamb: exactly! If Brock Lesnar starts a fight with a tiny little guy with no fight in him, is that guy allowed to use a weapon? I would say absolutely yes. It's not fair that one man has three times the body weight, world class fighting skills and a hundred times the aggression. The only way to make the fight fair would be to give the little guy a weapon. For me this doping thing is kind of the same argument. That guy was better than me because of an accident of birth, and I'm trying to use my wiles to make up for what nature denied me. I

I find it baffling how public opinion chastises people for failed drug tests, when substances are on an arbitrary list written by... who wrote the list anyway? Something could have been deemed fine last year, and this year it's illegal. So that guy was a hero last year, and now he's an absolute arsehole, stealing the career of someone else. And yet some other things which also have proven performance benefits are not on the list. The whole thing is a mind fuck.

Racing Rumors 2.0: Gwin, the Athertons, & More
When I think about it, I remember hearing that Merida still manufactures bikes for spec, but does not own much of the company now.

Oh no! Check your passport! The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Great Britain refers to England, Wales and Scotland. Britain refers to England and Wales, I believe.

Racing Rumors 2.0: Gwin, the Athertons, & More
You would be an idiot not to follow the money in any job. Food, clothes, houses and education for your offspring don't just grow on trees. They have to be paid for with money. One should always try to maximise one's earnings potential, and one should always try to get a discount on anything wherever possible. Business is business.

I doubt the Athertons will split. Their whole program is a business entity which employs all of them. It would be a big pain in the neck to dissolve it all. I think they are worth collectively more than they are individually. Yes, Rachel is by far the biggest name in women's downhill, but that's like saying you're the best professional boomerang trick shot artist in the world. You're first in a class of ten. So what? No one is buying bikes because of Rachel Atherton. Harsh but true. Gee on the other hand? If he starts winning again, or at least getting close, it would be a different story.
