  1. Hat’s off to your track cyclists, or should I say ‘everything off’ in the case of Rebecca Romero! 😉

    All kidding aside it’s awsome that GB will have representation in all the Track events!

  2. It’s great to see Britain with many good chances of gold medals. Hopefully we can maintain standard of World Champs earlier in year
