I'm with you guys.  I feel sorry for her.  I think she is making the right move because the sport is not where it should be in so many ways. 
I think the whole Rochelle Gilmour thing with Wiggle, Brad and the track girls left Laws, Martin, Armistead, Pooley and Cooke locked out and was a signal that you had to stay on message and suck up to the guys in charge if you were going anywhere.  I think my cryptic post above was not really understood by too many.  Laws, Pooley and Cooke were deliberately blindsided by Gilmour and that Gilmour chose to announce the formation of her team straight after Pooley had committed to another spoke volumes. First it was Pooley who "wasn't Cooke" and then it was Armistead who "wasn't Pooley or Cooke".  I had the opportunity to listen to the coverage of the road race yesterday with the interviews with Trott and Gilmour.  Year Zero for Women's cycling started in 2011 and everything in the garden is coming along fine.
