Just a quick note to respond to all the comments related to Rob Young on my most recent blog concerning Dustin Johnson.
First, thanks very much for reading it. 🙂
Second, thank you also for bringing the allegations about Robert Young’s record-breaking trans-continental attempt to my attention. Although almost all of you have given your comments by use of a first name only, and I have also received an anonymous email with similar allegations, I have read them and do take them seriously.
I have been assured by Rob, his manager and the Swiss-based SKINS staff member travelling with Rob that no ‘cheating’ occurred. Nonetheless, SKINS is true to its brand values and obviously these concerns warrant attention.
I have, therefore, made arrangements for this matter be investigated as soon as possible by an independent expert. I shall let you know who that is once their appointment is confirmed.
In addition to available data, the independent review will no doubt look at the comments on my blog also. If any of you wish to provide additional information that is not anonymous, you are welcome to do so.
Thanks again for your concern. You can be assured I want to find out what’s gone on here also.
In the meantime, please see here a media statement from SKINS on this matter.
