have been won by the Great Britain Cycling team at the World championships. am I the only one watching this? Still another day tomorrow to add to this haul. But there does not seem to be much of a hulla-balloo going on about it in the news bulletins. Why not?
Cycling is my sport and of all the sports I have done it is the hardest by a long chalk.
Until the Manchester Velodrome was built we were good but not exceptional. Now 9 golds and the next team only 2. The organisation behind British Cycling is first rate and there are some lessons there for other mainstream sports.
here for these cycling events. Not everyone would like being 'saddled' with him every time though, I suspect. :o)
Seriously though, these so-called lesser world competition events should, in my humble opinion, be given fairer coverage by the media. After all, these young athlete cyclists are competing for Great Britain as well as for themselves, so I say let us and the media show due respect for their valiant efforts on our behalf. They well deserve it. TC.
I suggest all the people who think it is like watching paint dry, have a look at tomorrow's session. They could well change their minds. Even if Great Britain don't win any more medals. The races I have watched over the last couple of days have been very exciting.
