Just back from an amazing weekend down in Surrey for the Men’s and Women’s Olympic cycling road race.
Here are Froome, Wiggins. and the rest of Team GB leading the peloton through leafy Surrey. Unfortunately the boys got left to the front for most of the race and couldn’t catch Cancellara’s breakaway, so no medal today. It was awe inspiring when the peloton came past at approx 40mph – the whir of 100 sets of wheels and gears, and the rush of wind was really something else. Amazing energy.
