There's no problem with a journo approaching someone involved in a story but that's a pretty ham fisted way of doing it. When he says "off the record" I assume he meant to say "we'll report what you say anonymously" and the line "it doesn't neccesarily have to be a hatchet job on Delaney" screams that he wants it to be a hatchet job on Delaney.

oh yes
I´m glad C.Watson didnt accept

    Not to me. I thought it sounded more like he was trying to pre-empt what he thought might be Watson's biggest reservation against talking, that it would be just another Delaney hatchet job.

    Definitely poorly written though and perhaps even an inadvertent meta-criticism of modern communications.

    Blythe is more outspoken, blaming the "terrible bikes", among others

    Going to watch that when I get a moment. Such a rare thing to have riders openly discuss these things.

    Good to hear. But also nothing more than the decent thing to do.
