Well spotted, indeed he is. (@Scylla: maybe you can prove otherwise, but I've just done the math and it's pretty obvious.)

For now I will not retract any bids. Scylla is hereby forbidden from bidding until he is back within his budget. If nobody overbids and he signs them all, only then the Cancellara bid will be retracted and the clock reset.

Also, a warning to Scylla for this unfair move. First warning has no consequences, it can happen to anybody. Second warning equals a penalty.

Sorry about the late bid, does that mean I have De Gendt then? was worried with him still being on the list, which is why i bid on Gatto, as wasnt sure if his deadline had past

As long as i get Gatto, no problem for me.

For bidding only the time of the last bid matter.
Garfield (and his helper(s) if he has any) can't move all finished transactions just after the end of the bidding......

Holy sh*t.
OK, it doesn't sound as bad as I thought at first, but cyclists really are an endangered species. Tell me of one other sport where competitors risk their life and well-being regularly while training...

Bridge. But that's because I cycle to all my tournaments :P

Anyway, indeed sounds better now. I prolly shouldn't have started reading last night's press from the Sun - "happy to be alive" and "waited 15 long minutes for an ambulance" is how they started of course...

at least skiing :)
but in fact they are a lot like all motor sports or extreme sports.

then if you remeber the video of the bike of cancellara with the supposed motor, then you get the conclusion : cycling is an extreme motor sport  :rofl:

But alpine skiers don't have snowmobiles and half-track crash into them on a regular basis...
And one could discuss whether motor sports are indeed sports. Takes a huge deal of concentration etc., but physically not as much as cycling (OK, which sport does?). And even if it were counted as a sport, they don't have fighter jets crash into them while training.

@Garfield, that's what you get for reading the Sun. There's a simple solution: Don't read it.
