Team GB training like, a train

Not really news as such, but Team GB's A-list were at Manchester Velodrome when we were at the Boardman launch. Sadly we didn't get to talk to them as they're much too focused, but we thought you'd appreciate a bit of footage of them all ranting round at twice the speed mortals can manage.

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

Hoy was quick, but he wasn't really trying - dunno if that was something to do with his training schedule. Victoria Pendleton though - sadly I didn't get any video of her but she was insanely fast, and so close to the motorbike that any kind of misjudgement would have meant a massive stack. Honestly, she was about 3 inches away from the back wheel. Madness.
