Newton's near the front somewhere
Where's the American gone? He was top the points before the 5th sprint but he's not there any more. Has he pulled out?
Newton in fourth at the moment!
I think I preferred it without commentary
He went off, was miles ahead cos he'd gained a lap but I saw him cycling through the middle zone. Dunno why
i have no idea whats going on
They keep taking breaks on the interactive. They did it during the womens' RR, was quite funny, you could hear them chatting away not realising they were on air
persevere, it's worth it
All change at the top, 5 riders just got a lap
Take it away Chris!
only 80 laps to go!
Newton going for a lap on his own, gets the sprint but they've pulled him back He's a marked man in this
cycling will be the winner hopefully
The speactacle wins!
And why are they winning?
Newton gains a lap!
Spainiard now second and Newton gains a lap to go into third!
Having a wonderful holiday in China.
Wish you were here,
ETA...red button decided to work again )))))
i'm so confused
Points are scored for the sprints, 5 for 1st, etc. If a rider goes off the front and manages to get a lap on the bunch thay get 20 points.
The German has got 2 laps and has a huge lead now.
this isn't really down to the cycling now is it?
i'm going to read up on it... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Points_race
Newton going for another lap! With Llenaris (sp?) Come on!!!
Yes!!! They've done it, Newton in silver atm!
they've just overtaken the german! up to 2nd
This is quite mesmerising!
Has anyone ever tried track cycling, just found there is a track about 15 miles away from me, quite fancy ago
Exciting stuff! Spain wins but Newton and Kluge tied on points. 1 sprints to go! COME ON CHRIS!
