why are we so good at track but never really show in Europe on the Tours?
Because we're clean.
Sorry for my cynicism.
Superb display by the track team though, simply superb!
More cynicism here - the drugs thing, but also 'cos the track and olympic medals are the only thing that British Cycling (ie the BCF) care about. Hence the selling down the river of the only decent cycling facility in central London - Eastway - in return for a post 2012 track on the greatly reduced site.
Cycling is the only sport that will be worse off in the Olympic legacy than it was before the bid for the 2012 junkies sport fortnight was accepted.
End of rant.
