what a joke ... Skins really should get this right, but I reckon it'll play out like this:
-RY: We aren't familiar with the Stravas and didn't know we could sync directly with the watch, so we uploaded the files manually.
-LRC: Where's the rest of the datas? HR? Cadence? You know ... the stuff that'll clear your good name.
-RY: I don't know, it should all be there. We deleted the files from the watch after downloading them, so all we have now are these .gpx files that we totally didn't alter in any way.
-Skins: See guys ... is legits!
Exactly, was just thinking that.

Or, it will play out like this:
The "independent investigation team" will only have Rob's (doctored and edited) Strava account to investigate and all data in there will be feasible (even if there are segments equal to his PRs). The team will find nothing untoward about the data. The result of the investigation will be inconclusive. Rob lays low for a good while and starts his next challenge "for the kids" after an appropriate recovery period.
The investigation team finds that there is something suspect about the Strava data (that data will be all they have to investigate as the tom tom watches have been cleared). Rob confesses to "some" RV riding. Jaimie reports this in his followup next week and says that this particular challenge was to raise money "for the kids" so Rob gets off with a warning and SKINS either continues or stops their sponsorship of "their athlete" depending on social media interaction.
