Popped up on my FB feed actually! I only took painkillers during a race once due to a banging headache half way round Ashby 20, promptly vomited them up,in a hedge bottom 5 minutes later

My own opinion is that taking any pill during a race is cheating and I've never done it.

Got something to say?
