    He wasn't hit by someone in a South African cricket top driving a car with Somerset numberplates was he?

    Fair play to the Poms for their cycling effort here - real quality stuff.

    Did anyone else see the pursuit (I think it was the final) with the two English girls? One of them sat up at the start, and you could ardly see her torso from side on, she was so thin, but she had legs on her like The Governator in Conan the Barbarian.

    (y) Well done. Hopeing Anna Meares can grab a medal now as it it looks like it's going to be a somewhat disappointing meet for our cycling team.

    Anyway more domination from the pursuit guys...only bad thing is its going to be a bit of a downer come London because there is no way we can live up to this in cycling, we'll need to squeeze a few more events in, there aren't enough women's ones in any case

    What sort of chance does NZ have in the Madison? Seems like Roulston can't do much wrong at the moment, would be great to see him pick up a third medal.

    They aren't listed in any odds i can find, one place had Wiggins/Cavendish 2/5, any one else 7/4 another has GB 1.29, Germany on 4.90.

    Betfair has GB 1.67, Germany & Netherlands 2.44, Ukraine 3.47, NZ aren't mentioned.

    8 out of 13 gold for GB in cycling, fair to say they've dominated it.
