That started an avalanche of confessions and so we’ve duly rounded them up. Frankly, it’s pretty alarming. We’ve anonymised the comments, you’ll see why. Before we delve into this murky underworld, we should probably address the elephant in the room, doping. Is that cycling’s darkest secret? We’re going to start for the first time ever, with running. Because somebody has just run the route of the Tour de France and so deserves some serious credit! He ran the route of the Tour! Peter Thompson ran 30 miles a day for 68 days to rack up the 2082 miles of the exact route. Fantastic. He did it to raise money for the mental health charity Mind, and raise the money he did. Over £20,000. Great job. Some news from Zwift now, and they’ve given us the heads up about a new course release! They’ve recreated the UCI world champs course from Innsbruck which is going to be raced at the end of September! Thankfully, we don’t have to wait that long. In fact, only until Thursday 2nd August!
