    Women's keirin for one which would probably have given VP double gold.

    Any chance that will be included in 2012? The women's track programme is light compared to the men's

    Ok- then there needs to be a concerted campaign to have that event instated for 2012.

    We need a road race suitable for Cav too.

    If there are 50+ medals in the pool to win, we need more events else where too.

    Can't think of many areas around London that would cause him too many problems. Nice lack of long steep hills :D

    right, work to do. brilliant morning.
    will see the BMX when I get in from work..seedings and quals highlights on around midnight on freeview apparently
     
  25. Part 2

    Part 2 bizarre wanking accident

    About 2 in the morning for BMX.

    E2A: schedule

    Wednesday 20 August
    0200-0548: Men's and women's BMX seeding runs, men's BMX quarter-finals
    Thursday 21 August
    0200-0418: Women's BMX semi-finals, men's BMX semi-finals, women's BMX final, men's BMX final

    The British fella, Liam Philips is expected to go out in the quarters in the mes, the field is stacked, any of 20 could win.

    Gievn that they're planning to introduce BMX vert in 2012 I'd expect a cycling event to be lost somewhere like the kilo was this year.

    The BMX track is a big project but there's only one event they can hold on it unless they make one up.

    Apart from Chris Newton in the points race, have we actually got any silvers or bronzes on the track where we haven't got the gold too?

    Anyone for a cycling 1-2-3 in Sports Personality? We've got Hoy, Wiggins, Pendleton, Romero, Cooke and Cav to choose from.
