If you’re not first you’re last

One of my favorite cycling blogs out there is http://www.cyclingtipsblog.com/, this morning there was some intresting advice from Professional rider Ben Greenwood of Team Rapha:

“Criteriums offer a fantastic chance for some opportunistic rule bending. The normal regulation is that a rider can have up to a maximum of 2 separate laps out for a mechanical or crash with only 1 lap allowed for each incident. Crashes can be abused as they normally happen round the back of the circuit, away from the judges eyes. This means they don’t actually know who’s crashed and who is just pretending. All a rider needs to do is rub a bit a chain oil on their leg, roll their shorts up a bit and turn their helmet slightly and the judges will be pretty convinced.”

This was part of a post about how pro riders bend the rules in the peloton. If you want to read the entire post click here: http://www.cyclingtipsblog.com/2009/10/bending-the-rules/
