I reckon he has a chance. He rode well within himself last time, and hopefully there will be more than the paltry 1000 odd people at Manchester to cheer him on. I lost my voice after 40 minutes!

Is this why Brad can't make up his mind whether he wants to retire or not? Will a Dowsett success provoke a Wiggins markII? Keep reading those TUE's folks.

I reckon that's probably got more to do with the product endorsement opportunities disappearing, I suppose he could always advertise for GSK  :demon:

It may be to do with raising his profile, he was out of contract ( although there are rumours that he may just have got a deal)
It’s a good idea to go before Ganna, who has aspirations for the hour. He’s currently isolating following a positive Covid test. He could well put the hour record away on a very high shelf for a long time.

Dowsett’s Hour postponed after what Auntie helpfully describes as a ‘positive test’, thankfully for COVID
