Goodbye Individual Pursuit, Points Race and Madison?
I just saw this article on BBC Sport:
Seems like the cuts to track racing are starting to get a bit excessive. what are your thoughts?
I think it sucks, but I'm still mourning the loss of the kilo, which I think is a more exciting race to watch then either the IP or points race.
The IP is a major benchmark event, and an indicator of a riders future ability to transfer to the road (Wiggins, Boardman, Ekimov, etc) but it's also the most boring track event to watch.
Please bring back the kilo!

Run What 'Ya Brung
No points race? How will I ever get an Olympic medal?

I agree with all of this.

They wanted to equalise the number of men's and women's track events without changing the overall number of medals. So a bunch of men's events had to go. Oh well. At least there will an omnium (most likely) which will contain a bunch of the smited events.
