Rea should ride to win

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Comment -

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.
