    I know I'm being jingoistic, but the way he ran down Theo Boss in the sprints, and more so, the way he went SO early in the Keirin, and still won, was AMAZING. They couldn't get near him.

    This has been done to death in Australia, but the best part is that he lives on Kentucky Fried Chicken, McDonalds, Coke and Barbeque Pringles

    And what about that crash in the Keirin heat?

    Why do these events always happen when I'm not watching TV or I'm at work?

    Anybody got internet links to the video?

    I KNOW!!!! Bloody hell. I'm sure our track coverage was delayed by maybe half an hour, or an hour while we were getting synchronised diving, or something.

    The way i figure it, the east coast of the US could've had the track events live at about 10 or 11am, so, were they on?

    Keirin is awesome. I'm sure non cycling fans would like it.
