Step inside Lance Armstrong's kitchen
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.

I remember when all this was, er, a cycle track

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?

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.
