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.
