Rosara Joseph got 9th in the MTB at Beijing after two crashes and in a season where she was majorly behind in her schedule after breaking her ankle at the 1st round of the World Cup. She is a class act still on her way up and many wise people see her as a legitimate medal contender in London.

But we will never have enough good roadies to contend against the big hitter teams in the road race.

Why invest in a race that is a lottery stacked in the favour of Major Euro Countries.

Time Trial maybe.

Yeah Rosara is a machine. Throw her into the mix.

The Olympics is a bit different because of the small teams - if we had three or four strong ProTour guys like Roly in the mix it would be a lot different to poor Julz having to do it all virtually on his own. But in general you're probably right...

Yes he has. And made the finals, I think.

Those guys are super fast. Would be intresting what you could do to the bike to make it faster.
