Hey! You! Over there! Come here! There is track cycling happening!


We are two days into the European U23 and Junior Track Championships, held once again at the stunning Velódromo Nacional em Sangalhos in Anadia, just north of Coimbra. At the very beginning of an Olympic cycle, this is the first chance we get to cast an eye over the riders who may well be lighting up the boards in Rio in 3 summers time.

The full results and live timings can be accessed through this link, but here is a quick run down of the winners so far:

     Becky's opinion of her form? "I'm crawling".
     Hope she can sharpen up by next weekend.
