Nine gold medals at the Worlds for Team GB – wow! So, the rest of the World will be happy to compete for silvers at Beijing? Hardly! One man who’ll be doing his best to deny Bradley Wiggins two gold medals in China is Denmark’s Michael Mørkøv. He took bronze in the Madison at Manchester, last month partnered by compatriot and former world scratch champion, Alex Rasmussen.
Michael didn’t make the Danish team pursuit squad that dipped below the magical four minute barrier to take silver behind the British squad; but he hopes to rectify that by the time Beijing is upon us.
