Re: The Olympics

I watched the women's skateboarding the other night (qualifying) with faint disbelief. This American women rocked up, and she was just awful. You have to ask how she was able to win through the American trials. The commentators were not critical although she didn't attempt one trick and came last by...

Re: Exclusive CW Forum Prototype Sale

It's probably gone now, but the detail on the listing explained what the difference was.

I just tried the special page, and it's now saying password error, so I assume it has either all sold, or been taken down.

Re: Exclusive CW Forum Prototype Sale

12 noon GMT must be 7am East Coast USA, and much earlier West Coast USA. It's hard to get a time that works for both California AND Canberra. Just make it Britain only, I think.

[edit. 8am New York, 5am LA] www.time.is

Re: What a difference a strap can make...

I've just bought some velcro straps in a few colours. I might unpick the X-treme label to see more of the underlying colour. Only around £5 and a nice alternative to a NATO. I posted a yellow one. Here's a red one .

Chess

Any chess enthusiasts. I have been watching a few matches in the Fide World Cup this week on Chess 24. Isn't it funny how everyone seems to collapse against Magnus Carlsen when it comes to the blitz time limits? It's also funny how badly I play in comparison. They measure it all in micro-pawns now. ...

Re: Cycling (Olympics and non Olympics)

Amazing. Roglic led at halfway and seemed to be the only one who was saving something. Also he did an extra few hundred metres as he didn't seem.to know where the finishing line was. The eurosport commentators pointed out that the top three hadn't been heavily involved in the TdF or the road race. R...

Time trials are on overnight. Very difficult to pick a winner. Maybe Rohan Dennis.

Re: Cycling (Olympics and non Olympics)

There was a good video review by GCN I just watched. No pictures though, for regional reasons but interesting discussion.
