Well done, Jess!

This little Chicasso went on a bicycle ride

It was only yesterday it dawned on my just how brave the former GB cyclist Jess Varnish has been.  She stood up to bullying and sexism.

Anyone who’s ever tried will know how hard it is to take a formal case against bullies. Witnesses develop a touch of the Arsene Wengers: see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.

We may never see Jess on the professional cycling circuit. Maybe that’s her price for a greater good.

She should be proud because she’s made a real difference. We revelled in the GB medal tally of London 2012 and Rio 2016. Now we’re questioning the win at all costs is the ethos?
