Day 9

Track cycling saw two sessions today: a morning session which included team pursuit and individual sprint qualifications, and an evening session, which included the women’s pursuit finals and additional qualification rounds.  For the most part, this was a day that just set up the action we will look forward to in the coming days.  However, it was impressive to see the Great Britain team pursuit “A” team set a new World Record.  And to think that was only a qualifying race!

As the Cycling events move forward we look ahead to the men and women’s BMX.  Although many cyclists around the world got their cycling start in BMX, the most famous being speed demon Robbie McEwan, this is the first time it is an Olympic medal event.  The US athletes arrived yesterday and began their preview of the course today.  These athletes are all hopefuls; so keep your eyes on these races later this week!

Stay tuned!  Lot’s more coming your way.  Although not a pure cycling event, we will have staff out at the women’s triathlon tomorrow to bring us back a first hand report.
