    Interesting to see how Clancy goes in team sprint, especially considering the rumours that they are considering reintroducing the Kilo at the Olympics..

    Laura Trott excited for Glasgow and talking about getting back on track :D:

    Quote
    "I just wanted to get back on it; it was the only thing that felt normal," she says. "It was about going and doing what I enjoy most and that's riding my bike.

    "You could be on your own, you could be out there for three, four hours, not thinking about anything other than 'oh this is a nice day' or 'it's really windy down this road'."

    So far so bad for GB as the pursuit team crash out..

    Quote
    The inexperienced squad tumbled to the track on the back straight with four laps remaining after a touch of wheels.
    Owain Doull was the only rider to stay upright as Sam Harrison, Joe Kelly and world champion Andrew Tennant hit the deck - although the trio walked away.

    Obviously this team is very inexperienced but this should have been a big race for the four as with at least half of the Olympic team not ever going to race again properly on the track this team should have laid down the markers for the development of the next pursuit team.

    BBC are supposed to be live at the moment, but nothing going.
    Disappointing, though probably better as the Olympic omnium champ has just decimated Martyn Irvine in the IP final..

    An exciting evening in the velodrome over in Glasgow..

    Laura Trott lived up to all that hype with another thrilling victory in the elimination and now she lies merely one point behind the three leaders in the omnium, I certainly would not bet against her winning even if her perfomances in the first two events were a bit substandard for her..

    A great duel between the two women sprinters in the sprint with Varnish just coming out on top thanks to some very nifty tactics. Varnish though was soundly beaten by Kristina Vogel in the final and indeed it does seem like these two may have to get used to being beaten by Vogel as the years progress as the 22 year old is an extremely talented track sprinter. Meanwhile James won her bronze medal match off though she did seem to run out of steam in the second race where she lost to Lee but then came back in the final one to win 2-1.

    Kenny was  expected to dominate the Keirin and tbh he was seemingly on his way to doing so with a masteful win in his semi final. His main rival was a young German by the name of Stefan Boetticher who led the sprint out in the Keirin and Kenny orginally attempted to come around the top of the German but ran out of puff and instead tried to slot in, but then collided with the back wheel of the German and Kenny fell off his bike. Nevertheless in a moment of quick thinking though his coach managed to get his road bike and Kenny came fourth with his road bike in tow.

    Also in the men's omnium Jonathan Dibben got a very good result in the IP with a tremendous 3rd behind the two favourites and finished the competition very nicely.. Martyn Irvine as well broke his personal best for the second time in a day in order to come second to Omnium Olympic champion Lasse Hansen by only 1.8 seconds..

    So all in all a good day with GB now having won a gold in the womens TP, womens team sprint, mens team sprint bronze, womens sprint silver and bronze.. and for tomorow of course there is Kenny (I believe) to look forward to in the sprint, the women in the Keirin and Trott in the omnium.. Good times.

    It was a good night in Mexico for the young Welsh trio of Eli Barker, Amy Roberts and Ciara Horne. For a start, they were in Mexico rather than Wales.

    But then, they got their new Team USN skinsuits on[1] and their wheels turning, and took to the Aguascalientes track for the Women's pursuit. The girls, having already taken Silver at the first round in Cali, posted the 3rd quickest time in the qualifying round, missing out on the gold/silver race and a shot at the overall World Cup title.

    Their hopes of overall glory took another dent when leaders Italy posted the 4th quickest time meaning that whatever the outcome of the bronze medal race - a repeat of the Cali final - they would take the crown.

    The girls clearly didn't let this disappoint them and they made up for Cali with a sterling ride to take the Bronze medal. Of course, after she deputised so admirably for Jo Rowsell in Glasgow wearing the Team GB kit, this means that Eli Barker has a medal of each colour from the three World Cup rounds this season.

    In the Gold medal match, the Canadian team destroyed their Ukrainian counterparts, catching them in the final kilometre.

    Meanwhile, Saturday evening will see the men's Madison for the first time in this World Cup, and newly-crowned British champions George Atkins and Jon Mould will take to the boards for Team USN.

    EDIT: It turns out that Jon Mould and Amy Roberts are also taking part in their respective Omniums (Mould was 7th overnight), and Ciara Horne is racing in tonight's Individual Pursuit. More on the Team USN Facebook page

     Crazy fast track.
    Tianshi Zhong[10.573] & Jinjie Gong[10.642] both broke the old, flying 200m world record.
    A number of national records went, too.
    McCullough now faster than Meares, for instance.
    The first 10 all went sub 11 seconds; some of them pretty inexperienced.
    Zhong, (prime example) then got knocked out in the first round proper.
    McCullough lost to Lee (the WC leader) in 2
    Gong beat Guerra in 2 in the final.

    I reckon altitude and conditions worth around half a second.
    That's huge.

     Surprised that no one has commented on the weekend.
    I was in Manchester for the whole event.
    Very pleased with how things went for Becky, who is slowly building towards
    Cali and the world championships.
    Great to see Anna Meares back on the track.
    Fastest ever sea level men's sprint qualification round.
    Germany are certainly dominating the sprint scene, atm.
    Another fine win for Martin Irvine, who got a superb reception from
    the very sporting crowd, who gave several foreign riders a standing ovation
    for their quality rides.

    You did much better than those of us watching it on the Beeb.  The Sunday broadcast was approximately 20% live coverage of racing, big chunks of highlights from the rest of the weekend (with voxpops from the GB riders) and some pretty clunky presenting from a former triple jumper.

    Would have been fair enough if the live feed had been available on the red button or on the website.  Not sure they covered the Women's points race at all.

     First 4 qualifying events in Mexico have yielded 3 new world records.
    Both team sprint records go to the Germans, with GB a very creditable 2nd in both.
    In the women's pursuits, GB (sans Laura Trott) take it down to 1 tenth over 4'-19, but are pushed to within half a second by an emerging Canada.

    Semi live here, now:

    Got up to find that the women's WR pursuit record is now at 4'-16.5".
    No shocks, medals went with QFing times.

    Oz men won in 3'-55" though.

    I expect some big PBs in the sprint QFing later, for altitude virgins.

    No clue, it was announced last month on the UCI website and it seemed like their bid was the superior bid. Don't think it dawned on the UCI and though Mexico is exotic, the subject of globalisation should have been considered a bit more.

    Click here........

    With the World Championships being held in Colombia that is a lot of events this year (3/4) being held in the Americas.

    The velodrome in Cape Town is going to be stripped out of its building as part of a current redevelopment. The UCI never sent enough events to Cape Town to make the velodrome viable. Part of the problem is bringing riders to Aigle instead of having them train in regional centres like Cape Town. Misguided empire building.

    That leaves just one indoor 250m track in Africa. It's in Nigeria and has gone unused by the UCI since it was built more than a decade ago and isn't even available to local riders for training.

    Meanwhile, there is no host for next year's Para-Cycling World Championships yet and even World Cups are being decided just a few months out. You'd have thought this would be a priority for Cookson given the importance of track medals to British Cycling. How are we going to ask for more Olympic track medals where there's not even anywhere to have a quality competition in all of Africa?

    These problems are an easier fix than pro cycling, too. I suppose Cookson's been swayed by all those calls asking what he's going to do about Lance, as he swans about in Egypt patting himself on the back for his part in making "Africa's" first TdF champion.

     The 3rd World Cup had been initially allocated to Paris, but the French have
    failed to complete their new velodrome in time.
     Official opening is currently set for January.

    Talking with Miriam Welte in Apeldoorn and she thought there were 3 venues in the running.
     Either Copenhagan, one I forget, or, ironically, Cape Town.

    Fact is, nobody wanted it, since the costs and UCI's fee are so high.

    Rumour has it is that by 2015, most, if not all WCs will be held in the UK.
