What happens now?
get den DQ'd imo. dangerous play and unnecessary shouting
The Brits got their man back on track and had three man crossing the line first, so I assume they'll go through
Sad for Denmark - they were going well and Tanfield was having a shocker.
But yeah, head down riding is dangerous.
Hmm. Apparently the rules say that as soon as you're within 1 metre of your opponent, the race is over. So the Danes might have won.
Not if your opponent is going for a fastest loser spot (which they weren't going to get) and you wipe them out though, presumably.
Complete disrespect shown to both are Charlie and towels. This must not stand.
That Danish lad needs to have a word with himself
Acted like a right melon
Ah, yes. Thought it was just a simple elimination race.
Lead rider for danish pursuit team cycled into the back of team GB rider bc he was looking at the floor
SPORT ARE HARRY. dq the shinpad sticker cowards imo
Danes lapped Brits but were riding head down so just plowed into the back of the last Brits wheel.
He needs to have his track accreditation suspended.
Karston Warholms run in the 400m hurdles was an absolute monster
Re Freddy "The Melon Massen"
I can see where he's coming from though - he must have thought Tanfield was fourth man and was just in the way.
The speed difference was huge and Tanfield could also have appreciated that and swung up - he wasn't going to catch the other two any time soon.
Rules is rules
I get that most sportsfolk are pretty alpha, but that Dane was a bit of a cunt.
Even when he was back in the team cupboard he was throwing shit about and shouting.
DQ him from the final!
I wish the BBC coverage had a little 'live' ident in the corner
Maybe he's just cross with himself xx
Look at what happened with Amos and Jewett in the 800m the other day - the favourite is taken out. Gets up and shakes hands with Jewett. You can be an elite athlete and not be a cunt
Tanfield professional foul, and Clancy unretires, drafted back in and wins with a world record?
I liked the restraint the Dane showed in not smashing one of the last 7 Spaceballs helmets in existence.
The men’s TP final isn’t until tomorrow so we’ve plenty of time for appeals and counter appeals.
