New Zealand's Hayden Roulston absolutely smashed his Dutch rival, not only catching him, but putting enough time on him to qualify 2nd fastest. Great Britian's Bradley Wiggins (and yes he is clean) finished fastest beating Roulston's time by 3 seconds and set a new WR.
Roulston got into trouble in 2004 when he made the squad for Athens, he went out and celebrated in a bar in Christchurch with his mates (as you do), when he got asked to move on, he went on a rampage shouting 'Do you know who I am?', evidently not it seemed. And was charged with assault. At the time he was signed to ride for the then Discovery Channel squad, famous for Lance Armstrong and was lucky for that not to end up in smoke. A year on he was lucky not get the arse after getting into a pub fight in Timaru and was charged with that. Then in 2006 he had to retire after being diagnosed with a serious heart problem with a bloked artery but was able to make a comeback.
yeah we'll take that, another Gold. We weren't expected to take this one out either, always good to beat the French. Wiggins looked good for later as well as did the two women.
Excuse my ignorance, Craig said one of the cyclists we have is from round my way, which one? Been nothing in the local press :unsure:
I've always said cycling's my fave sport:ph34r:
Surely Craig doesn't think I'm from B****n?? :( :blowup:
Goes without saying really that someone to make it big at something from round my way would be a ****in tunnel rat
Love the Velodrome stuff, perhaps one of my favourite events at the Olympics.
Yeah I'd be surprised, the Brit was even more impressive.
A medal would be great though.
