Well done to Lizzie A.

I see her squabble with Nicole has been patched up.

Though perhaps it's a bit one-sided:

"Lizzie is the one who sparked it off so if she wanted to address anything the onus was on her to call me," Cooke explained to Wales Online.

"Lizzie is young and ambitious and she came out with those things.

"I have forgiven her and we have moved on."

I was at the race on Sunday and interestingly (or not) despite being bonkers about cycling, the Belgians were totally disinterested in the women's race. Maybe it was the emphatic manner of Lizzie's win?

Anyway it was nice to wave our flag at a Brit winner while Lizzie had plenty of time to savour the moment.
a great mind thinks alike
