Well no rubbish today about my trip to the track or my run in with a black cab driver, today is simply about the bike riding.

Put simply, GB were unstoppable!

Vicky Pendleton won the Keirin with a dominance I have never seen her show before, and with such power, speed and superior tactics it was a joy to watch.

She moved women’s racing on to a new level today – utterly fantastic, and with her confirmation that retirement is just days away, yet while in this form it seems a waste but understandable given the years of commitment.

In the men’s Team Pursuit this night was all about the ‘old firm’.

As the Aussies and Brits lined up for the start the velodrome hushed with tension, then the six bleeps from the starting system, the longest 10 seconds I have ever spent stationery on a bike.
