Have you tried beating them?
Man I can beat the shit out of them easily :D

Err... on a bike, yep up until about 9 months ago, now they go bigger, harder and faster.

I explained to them... which I justified to myself. I am getting older and slower, they are getting older and faster. The old bank-roller is still the king over 50km though, 100km they are cooked, I'm just getting warmed up at 50km.... though that is diminishing too of late.

I watched this episode ,( and all the others ) it was okay , I will throw out there tho - the boys are good , but they have all undervalued The Girls .
Strong riders , Great skills , just not a knobbish has the boys - I guess that is normal .
Young guys seem to have become ( maybe always were ? ) looking for insta fame and acting like a cock .
The girls seem considered and would be higher up my list of ‘ useful to have in my business ‘

I don’t feel the show really has any integrity as most of the eliminations are based around feed back from the judges not on actual skills or wins - It feels more and more to me like they have a person picked already and just gear the results to fit the narrative.

Yeah maybe, the person I hoped to win went home though...
One of them was on my kind of deserving list - but neither are ones I had tagged as winner . But my tagging the winner was not based on skill but the marketing of the show and who I thought they would push.

Are you suggesting it’s not fully scripted from day one and just badly acted?

In the same way I’m not directly involved in Trump/US election, but still hang on every word and love to criticize? :p

He's a good rider but Evan beat him by 7sec on the run.

Its good to see Jo and Evan still there, a couple of the more humble contestants.

I like how he tried to blame the short run. I think we've seen the last of him dropping the sunnies over his eyes while bragging.
