     It's more than a bit open. No sides.
    Plus it's been wet for most of the past week.

    Not directly related, but:

    Baugé worried French track programme still lags behind Britain


    Quote
    “Yes, there’s a nice track but as I’ve said before, that’s not everything,” Baugé told L’Équipe ahead of this week’s world championships in Cali. “I’m French and I have the impression that, in my country, we’re standing still, we’re performing a track stand. I’m saying it clearly, we’re not there. I know that I am the strongest but you’re the good Frenchman who wants to do things within the rules and voilà.”

    Asked if he was suggesting that the riders on the rival Great Britain track programme were doping, Baugé said: “Doping, that’s not what I’d put first.”

    At the London 2012 Olympics, French team director Isabelle Gautheron publicly questioned whether the British team was riding regulation wheels – “Mavic wheels or magic wheels?” as the L’Équipe headline put it at the time – while Baugé himself took over from journalists during the press conference that followed his defeat in the sprint final, asking winner Jason Kenny a number of questions regarding his preparation.

    Kenny’s only world championship gold medal before those Olympics had come when Baugé was handed a retroactive ban for recording three whereabouts violations and was stripped of his 2011 sprint world title.

    “I haven’t heard anything about the wheels,” Baugé told L’Équipe. “But what I’ve felt is that they’re all rowing in the same direction, right down to the smallest details. We saw that that their athletes were there just to push on the pedals. At this level, you need 1% to make the difference between a gold medal and a silver medal.”

    Wrong board here, but possibly an insinuation of doping:

    Quote
    Baugé also revisited his surprise at losing so emphatically to Kenny at the London Olympics after beating him at the Worlds in Melbourne earlier that year: “Kenny, I never saw him like that… I knew that I was the best but I couldn’t even draw level with him!”

    There is still a while to Rio and this is obviously a bad/awful point for the GB TP mens team, but nevertheless no excuses can justify the awful performance here. However, SS and co. must be hoping that Wiggins will be able to pull the team around the track in Rio because the guys coming through don't look up to it.

    Olympic champions Great Britain missed out on a medal ride in the men's team pursuit on day one of the Track Cycling World Championships in Colombia.
    Two-time Olympic gold medallist Ed Clancy, Sam Harrison, Owain Doull and Jon Dibben finished eighth, in four minutes 4.419 seconds in Cali.
    GB won the four-kilometre event in 2012, silver in 2013 and gold at the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games.

    Think you are over reacting a bit. Burke was ill so didn't ride and Wiggins obviously wasn't there so only 2, at most, of the team for Rio actually rode.

    Anyway, one poor race in harsh conditions shouldn't make you jump to the conclusion that the guys coming through aren't up to it. Give them a chance.

    Agreed, but 8th is very far off the pace and a team is only as good as its competition for places. Also what happens if a rider is ill at the Olympics? Harrison, Doull and Dibben are all promising without making enough gains for my liking. They are young and are the future of the team. Clancy is the current leader of the team but unlike Wiggins and Thomas he is more of a sprinter and doesn't have the engine to pull them around the track.

    A comprehensive list of results and not much else

    For a *gb perspective: http://www.cyclingweekly.co.uk/news/latest-news/great-britain-endure-disappointing-opening-day-track-world-championships-116232

    The male sprinters will also needs to raise their game, however Kenny always pulls out the stops when it comes to crunch time.

    - Male team pursuiters record their worst result in 15 years
    - Team sprint trio miss out on a medal ride
    - Becky James and Jess Varnish win bronze in the team sprint


    Quote
    A bronze medal for Becky James and Jess Varnish in the team sprint put a silver lining on the day in which the British men’s team pursuit squad recorded their worst result at a world championships for 15 years.

     I was actually a bit disappointed with that bronze.
    Thought Becky and Jess might have managed to see off the Chinese in the qualifying, not leave it to the finals, to better their times.
     Miriam by far and a way the best over that first lap.
    No competition until somebody finds half a second.

    Unsurprisingly, GB women into the final of their team pursuit, qualifying in 4'-28", compared to Canada's 4'-30".
     Australia and Poland into the bronze medal race.

    Very scrappy set of Kierin finals, two bad crashes but Pervis finally wins the world Keirin title he has been after for a long time.

    British women's team take the first ever women's Team Pursuit title to be contested with teams of 4 over 4km.

    Disappointing world track championships for Great Britain


    Quote
    The Great Britain team will return home from the track World Championships in Cali with two golds, one silver and two bronzes, all won by women. The British men were left empty handed after failing to win a single medal on the track in Colombia. Team GB finished fourth in the medals table. They topped the table last year in Minsk with five gold, two silver and two bronze medals, indicating that other nations have raised their game, while Great Britain has back pedaled.

    The success of the British women, helped deflect the poor performance by the men. Kate Archibald, Joanna Rowsell, Elinor Barker and Laura Trott beat Canada to win gold in the team pursuit. Unbeaten since 2010, the four women were seriously under threat by Canada this year. Up to the three kilometre mark Canada led the way but the British women managed to edge ahead of the Canadians in the last kilometre.

    What this may result in, is a change of the management structure. Namely Brailsford stepping down as has already been hinted at and taking full control of #sky, directing all his time to the road. He didn't travel to Cali and he will probably come to the conclusion that he can't continue to split his considerable expertise, because the track require a lot of building on the way to Rio, particularly the men.

    Before London there were hints of the Germans dominating the sprint disciplines but it never came to fruition, however it looks more likely now. The German women look nigh on unbeatable and certainly not by the GB team atm.

    It does indeed seem like Germany are on the rise and the recent dominance of GB and Australia is on the wane, although Australia did very well in the mass start events.

    Interestingly the GB Women's squad seems to have coped fairly well the retirement of Victoria Pendleton and the likes of Lizzie Armitstead moving to the road, whereas the GB men have almost completely collapsed with the departure of Chris Hoy, Geraint Thomas and Bradley Wiggins.

    Thanks for that, Froomey. :(

     It's not quite as black as that, although true at the moment.
    GB have taken a bit more of a low key approach to this WC. If there is a nothing year, in between the Olympics, this is it.
     To my knowledge, Germany do not have a third sprinter, or even one coming through their system.
    Miriam had to ride the 2nd Mexico WC with and endurance girl (and where are they?)
    GB will have 4, possibly 5 World class sprinters, by Rio.
    The team sprint will, at some point become the same as the men's, as with the TP.

     Vogel has not suffered a fall off in form since London (amazing though that is) and has made huge gains in the past 12 months, both in form and thighs. She cannot maintain this rate of evolution.

     Becky is still learning and physically has much to gain, before Brazil.

    The men, admittedly are more of a grey area.
