    A great weekend for the GB ladies endurance squad! Well done!

    It's ok NervexProf - it does feel a bit lonely sometimes trying to stimulate any conversation about track racing! 8)
    I’m a sprinter – I warmed up yesterday.

    Eddy - don't worry about my Robinson Crusoe status - the track for me is a lifetime interest.

    Anyway, a lot of great trackies made it on the road - notably Patrick Sercu whose road palmares is one to be proud of:

    Chapeau girls... I was majorly impressed watching the World Cup the other week, how many young riders were stepping up and winning gold medals. I started watching it thinking with the trouncing GB have given the rest of the world this year, they can't still be on top form- i wasn't expecting so many new names to come up and carry it on!
