Knowing they cheated, the only realistic options they had with the cadence data was to (a) doctor it or (b) remove it. Why serve it up if it's so damning?
He posted images to Facebook that proved he'd already sync'd the data to TomTom site. They could only be removed from there by manual deletion, and if Skins had told him not to touch the data, he'd be in far more legal problems if he did. This way, he just looks like a total fraud, rather than being a total fraud that's being sued by his sponsor.[/quote]
Ry and Dustin do not seem like they have the technical expertise to doctor things, so (a) is unlikely. I would imagine the username/password was requested. Just like when he uploaded the data to strava before, I think RY is such a people-pleaser that he will do anything to please someone now, without regard to the long-term consequences, so (b) is just how things played out. Maybe he still thought he would get away with it, or was unwilling to burn the house down back in June, preferring instead to wait until September while he plans his next move...
My two cents. I've never met the guy.
