Time to start thinking about the olympics. How will it work? I presume something like the worlds, but Dave remind me please.
yes please remind us Dave? because ds's aren't gonna be much use are they.well maybe the TTers
I was assuming same as a classic, with bonus points for being in a break at halfway - but yes if it turns out that there aren't many DS in the Road Race then it might be sensible to change things slightly...
Being more specific, will it be a no limits within budget free for all like the world champs last year or more focused? I remember that somebody took the whole uk squad. Bonus points for countires not teams?
who knows? ..but these will help you pick your team http://cyclingsam1blog.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/olympic-road-race-favourit... (Road Race favourites)

Sorry for the repetitive blog link drops, but I only started like last week, and i'm trying to get as many views as possible! Sorry!
Cheers for the blogs Sam....
Although id throw a few other names into the mix
I could've thrown some other names in, i.e. Tejay in the TT is one i've missed. But as always, I just wanted to post it pretty quickly, and I didn't want to do an essay! The names I put down are the ones that stood out to me at the time
Yeh fair enough, you could make an arguement for so many riders in the race anyway (road race), but good blog
Can't find a startlist anywhere?

They seem to have replaced Kristin Armstrong, among other women, with a loaf of bread wearing a bowler hat. Strange.
John Degenkolb is a jelly baby
But its people we all know, Like Cancellara and Cav, Look like they have been on the lash all night and just having their bail picture taken in the morning
Apart from Froome's baldness
My favourite HAS to be Timothy Duggan, It looks like he's posing in the mirror while holding his phone out to take the picture of himself
Riders are now up on the olympics website.
Geez.....Sylvan Chavanel looks like Jaws from the 007 films Garrido looks about 60 Jakob looks like he's been pulled through a hedge backwards and even Spartacus looks bad.
Are these passport photo's or something?
Most of them will be lucky to clear immigration!!!
Dan Craven FTW. By day, Namibian Pro. By night, Beegees tribute. GREAT hair.
EBH wins the 'shrunken head' award:
Also, did Emma Pooley even bother to get dressed for hers?
