I'm not a huge fan of Cooke, but I can't help but feel a bit sorry for her - whatever the rights or wrongs of what happened in Copenhagen, you certainly get the feeling that she has been shafted and made the scapegoat.   Her achievements on the road are phenomenal, and as the article says, with no Team GB support, and she deserves to be held in far higher esteem than she is.  For London, it would be logical to have two protected riders - both Cooked and Armistead, if they are on form, have the ability to feature at the business end of the race.  However, in the 'pursuitofgoldatallcosts' approach of Team GB, they will prefer to put all their eggs in one (in all likelihood Armistead) shaped basket.

Oh, and Sky's lack of a women's team is ridiculous imho.
