So the 2012 track world cup happened this weekend at the Sir Chris Hoy velodrome in Glasgow (even though Chris learned to ride track in Edinburgh).
There’s been lots of this happening
Laura Trott won the Omnium again. Jess Varnish came second in the sprints with Becky James third. Ed Clancy, Philip Hindes and Jason Kenny got second in the team sprint. The small amount I could watch while at work was great.
Which reminds me of Laura Trott winning the Devil (elimination race) at the track world championships (not the world cup, they’re different apparently) earlier this year, which was the most exciting bike race I think I’ve ever watched.
Now here’s some metal.
