the men's olympic road race

On Saturday we watched dream team GB cycle their hearts out in a valiant team effort to try and launch the Manx Missile into the finishing shoot and win gold for Britain. Unfortunately, things didn't go to plan and not even two stage winners plus the overall winner of the Tour de France could chase down the break away group and get Cavendish to The Mall in time for a sprint finish. It was a gutting result, but the team rode incredibly, and being able to watch the action road-side in Richmond Park amongst the crowds of supporters was amazing. Seeing Wiggins and the rest of Team GB whizz past us in the lead of the peloton made me very happy indeed.
