From what I saw is that they just didn't make the move in the peleton when they needed to, I think they thought that they would catch up and then they ran outta real estate.

Great Britain also didn't get the help they needed from Australia, the USA, and Germany.

I honestly don't know whether to laugh or cry about the cycling race. Team GB just had a hard time controlling a race this long and hard with only a "4 man" team. They gave it a massive effort, and even got some help from other Sky team members, but this is the sort of race where a 9 man team would have made a lot of difference.

Poor Cav, very disappointed for him and I know he'll feel like he let people down, but it was just an unpredictable race.

I was at work and watching on the stream with no commentary. I could tell Cance was badly banged up the way he was riding after the crash. Is it a collarbone or can he still ride the TT?

Breaking News: Korean who was originally DQed for a false-start has won his appeal and been re-instated into the final of the 400 free in swimming knocking Canada's Ryan Cochrane out.

NOT impressed with the news... I watched the video and the bugger clearly moved before the gun went off... Blatant disregard for the rules by FINA :mad:. It doesn't matter to me that a Canadian was knocked out, had it been an American, a Brit, whoever, that person should be in the finals because the Korean false started...

Yeah, but would you really honestly have been as upset? ;)

Vino is such an unrepentant doper that it's easy to be annoyed at his win, but he's also such a fun racer with such an aggressive style that there's almost something admirable. He always animates a race - and who else would go out in a kit with a picture of themselves on it (http://districtvelocity.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/vino.jpg)(he even had matching ones for his kids) :lol:

Let's be honest, probably not :lol: but still, why have rules if they're not going to be respected regardless?

I hope Cancellara isn't out of the TT! That would be tragic. Even if he can do it, with the crash, I think Wiggo may be the favorite.

Wiggins just tweeted "Well we did everything we could as a team, gutted for Cav and sad to see Fabian out"

I really hope that's inaccurate.
