i wonder what happened to the last u.s. olympic sprinter, jimmy watkins. *retired.
Laurine van Riessen got her Dutch National Champ stripes for Keirin and 500M on Monday.
Elis Ligtlee got 2nd in the keirin and did well at the European champs, plus her uci rank should secure her for the Dutch sprint.
Between Shanne Braspennincx and Laurinne for the keirin place?
GB team announced for track world cup in Hong Kong 16/17 Jan
Shit, another Olympics, already?
Worse than that soccerball World Series thing
Nah, that's going a bit far. The kickykicky game doesn't have any synchronised swimming or that ultimate test of human strength and endurance that is golf.
No more Jess Varnish
The Aussie plan to infiltrate BC management is turning out to be way better than when we starting talent scouting in schools.
Just read the Telegraph piece. Gobsmacked Shane thought saying he explained it all to the athletes boyfriend was in someway cool.. When people are so pr savvy and still say this shit to national press, it becomes massively telling of how ingrained a culture is..disappointed.
Shame that, one of those stories that makes you immediately wonder what really happened, especially if you've read, say, Nicole Cooke's book.
Damn. I should've kept quiet.. our plan was working...
99 days to Rio. Team predictions?

santiago botero wins omnium with this
Any updates since this?
What happened to Shanaze Reade? I would have liked to see her on the track team for the olympics.
She's still training with the squad in Manchester.
I could be wrong but I think Shanaze has always said she was aiming for the Tokyo track team in 2020.
Heart goes out to Andy Tennant for being the understudy two Olympics in a row.
