There's a hoop or two to jump through but worth it. You can get if off the www.nbcolympics.com if you go through the search function.

Men's just started. Team Sprint is bad ass.


Sir Chris Hoy coming up soon.

i was surprised that the U.S. men didn't qualify for team sprint. Really pulling for Watkins as i think he's an underdog.

Rules here - in short, the exchange must happen in a very narrow part of the track. Too early = Relegation, Too late = Relegation.

Keirin looks pretty interesting, and besides, anything beats running amongst cow dung

Is that marked somewhere? The BBC text stream made it seem like you just couldn't swap before the end of the lap. 30 meters is a pretty decent window, and I'm not seeing how a foul was called in at least one of the cases. They kept replaying the "finish" line crossing.

There are lines on the track that mark the exchange zone, but at local events I've seen cones used. I don't know why it's even a rule. I don't think guys should even be required to exchange.

Is anyone surprised that Paul Sherwen did absolutely nothing to explain the details?
