Rea should ride to win
K Lewis’s letter (MCN, November 9) about team orders could cover many sports. For example ‘Not trying to win’ as a jockey can earn you a hefty fine. Why is bike racing different? You don’t even have the excuse of not hurting the horse. However, this was not just ‘not trying to win’ - it’s worse, it’s riding to deliberately lose in order for someone else to benefit. Not to put too fine a point on it, that’s cheating. Rob Hart, email
Should Rea have helped Sykes?
