Not defects. And not the point, either.
Amanda is an exceptional athlete, physically and mentally, and it is really exciting she is going for the 100,000. I hope she does get it, and that it provokes interest in the achievement for other riders, just as Steve's interest in the Year has sparked off this wave of amazing activity and achievement.
I thought the UMCA didn't cover this record, though? Am I wrong, or is there another body validating?
