    I didn't get that at all. Why do the riders on the outside not start further forward, to compensate for having to ride in bigger circles? Pendleton seemed to start about 10 feet in front of Meares, despite there only being the two of them.

    She didn't need to because it was already 2-0 at that point.

    We don't need officials being on our side.

    @ Social, I agree, but I don't know how obvious it was to the officials that he had dived though. Don't know what the protocol is for the officials though, oince he admitted he dived,

    And in a direct match up between a Pom and an Aussie, the Pom tries to cheat but goodness prevails in the end. Some things transcend sport.

    They should have taken it off them. But I suspect by that time it was well and truly too late.

    I thought he was bowing out at the 2014 Commonwealth Games?

    Winning gold at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome must be something he wants to do.

    Yeah he said he wants to ride at Glasgow, just to show the locals what exercise is, and what living past 35 can be like.

    Lets be honest, the Velodrome will be sponsored by Buckfast.
