First glimpse of riders trying out the new track here

Impressive huh? Okay, there's a bit of final spit 'n' polish but it makes you proud to be British doesn't it.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.

On a slightly different Olympic vibe I heard on the news today that the IoC are going to scrap the Olympic Torch relay after 2016. So that'll be for the 2020 Olympics in 12 years time - on security grounds. And I thought the world of protest, espionage, terrorism and security must be fast paced. Obviously not if they need a 12 year run up.

Shame too cos the torch relay was my favourite event at the last Olympics - we won that didn't we?  39

Err, where's the BMX track then? That looked remarkably like a few temporary ramps with a novice wobbling around and only one decent trick rider. If a temporary ramp is all we can put up for a track then we'll look remarkably amateur as a nation.
