Still - like you say, there are bigger goals this year!

I wonder if Cycling.tv will have full olympic coverage?


It was the Keirin.

I stand corrected - still, the vdeo I saw of it made it look like an un-necessarily big effort.

No one will remember the World Champ if they don't win the Olympics though, right?

I think VP's dominance of late will mean she isn't easily forgotten. But she says herself she would trade all her Worlds medals for the gold OG one. Yeah she knows she went early... about a lap and a half out... 375m on the rivet. Ouch.

Can't wait to see what track coverage we can pick up from Beijing.

Yeah but what about Hoy? No problems leading the whole way. And twice coming over a 9.9 sprinter throwing hooks down the back straight. Dude is a frigging legend.

Prolly not too much drama for a kilo rider who supposedly rode 104" for all the sprints at the Champs.

104" Faaarrrrkkkk.

Was watching U Tube of Lutz Hesslich riding the rounds on 88" and gearing up for the finals to the big 90 incher.

What track sprinters get up to when they can't ride round in circles...

Go the old school Reebok slide board.

Nice shot, you're a lucky man Jamie! :love:
I really should start going to the gym when the track girls are around, although im afraid they would make me look wimpy in comparison.
