    Lame from Not Russia, false starting themselves out of the 5th/6th ride.

    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.

    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.

    Sad for Denmark - they were going well and Tanfield was having a shocker.

    But yeah, head down riding is dangerous.

    Not after the last one - this one is strapped down.

    Oof, getting back on a bike with those bars again takes some mental fortitude.

    I just watched a lot of the triathlon mixed relay back as well. It was great! Though I did fast forward to the transitions for a lot of the legs.

    It was really noticeable how much the different athletes' strengths could affect the whole team's performances - but also how France performed some kind of team negative split to claw a medal from an unlikely position, and how much the Netherlands and Germany faded from a good start. The USA and GB were impressively consistent.

    These ones on Castle Lane in Westminster are all empty too. The developers apparently had approval from Westminster Council to renovate them but haven't yet - I think because they are designated as much-needed social housing but they're going to try to sit on the land till the value has increased even more then sell them.
