    Heard Braillsford talking about the pursuit suiting more of a sprinter type last night. It's an interesting concept and I guess is starting already with Queally at these Worlds.

    I have a dim memory of the Eastern Block era, when the second-line kilo riders were retrained to do the pursuit.
    The idea was that they weren't ever going to be fast enough to win a kilo, but if their speed could be maintained over 4,000m, then a pursuit would be winnable.
    I guess that's why Jason Quealy is now a team pusuiter.
    Remember that you are an Englishman and thus have won first prize in the lottery of life.
