its all very unprofessional, i am very surprised that JR being a professional has taken this imature action.
he will find it difficult now to get sponsers & have a big legal bill to pay.


i agree except that being a professional and acting professionally are often poles apart...

I can understand why JR was recommending his bikes, when in hindsight, he clearly had reservations about the quality

I have raced in windsurfing at a nation and occasionally international level, and had some help with kit in the past. One of my boards clearly had some major quality issues (collapsing carbon structures etc) and ultimately failed completely while I was about 2 miles offshore - long swim!

However, as a good athlete, you have to believe 100% in your kit, you have to think that you are on the fastest (board,or bike) out there. I am sure that JR did believe that he was on the best kit available, it was only later on that his faith and trust collapsed completely.

I do agree with comments that it is incredibly unwise to air dirty laundry in public in the way that JR has done
