  1. More fact checking please! Salim Fadhley’s piece about drugs in sport wrongly stated that double amputee Oscar Pistorius has been banned from competing in the Olympics and will be appearing in the Paralympics, when in fact the opposite is true, as was actually correctly stated in the preceding piece!

  2. Since Chris Boardman’s Lotus bike from Barcelona 20 years ago, there have in fact been tight restrictions put on the equipment used in both road and track cycling. It is perfectly possible to build a lighter and more aerodynamic bike than those currently used in professional/Olympic bike racing, but they are not permitted. What the engineers do these days is to try and make the best possible bike that stays within these strict rules…
