Re: The Secret Pro Blog

Why would they not just be open about that then, could just add an s and they would be fine, 'the secret pros' why not? seems better imo anyway.
Why indeed? :S

My own personal theory:
At the beginning it was just one 'secret pro'. When the installment became more well-known, people started to dig deeper and were close to exposing who it was - that's when they started putting in false trails by drawing on multiple sources. But as the personality had been built up and trumpeted as an 'unique insight', they couldn't go back from that and say "we're just mixing stuff from 3-12 riders now".

Well, they could, but it would severely hurt their pride - and who would read it then? There are several non-anonymous pro diaries with just as much 'insider' info, if not more.
