Hmm, what's up with #wiggle?

Audrey Cordon-Ragot won her fourth French national TT title yesterday but she hinted at how difficult it had been to get motivated for it:

Maybe pastures new in 2019, then?

I have to be honest Rochelle and her cynical play for the BC link and with Wiggins' charity gifting some of the GB girls money whilst they were on her team, really didn't endear me to her.  Then all her commentary and the "cycling is so moving on and it is now so much stronger than it ever has been, Women's road cycling started at year zero at London 2012 as Lizzie crossed the line behind Vos" fake news, is another highly annoying habit.  The fact that she was such a vocal voice for no minimum wage, also played very badly as she should have just declared herself out of the debate due to her highly vested interest.   

So with the new, stronger women's cycling scene it is interesting to read that story. 

Quite what the genesis of the problems, we are not told, but I am feeling a sense of schadenfreude.
