Quite suprised that none of the MTB mags have any real coverage of the Olympic build up, being a home event
I have to confess I dont really know much about our team who they are and what their chances are .
Anyone following the progerss of our team ? could you point me in the right direction for blogs etc More interested in MTB ?BMX or road track cyclng doesnt float my boat

If I'd got any tickets for the MTB event, then I might have been vaguely interested in who was on the team - not that I'm bitter, or anything ;)
Seriously, though, not long to go, so I suppose I ought to keep track of who's who.
Oli & Liam are probably in the running for a place...
Edit: we have a female team member named 'last' - I do hope that's not prophetic

What, the "highly sustainable", mountainous track built in one of the flattest places in the country. It might be relentless in nature but it's hardly "mountain" biking.
Sorry if it's grumpy but I'm on nights and have just got up and the coffee is not working yet. :angry:

I totally agree if you go to the expense of building a track, then at least it should be left to be used for future training/ comps
I understand the Sally army own the farm and the fuure is not certain as o the use of it
Actually the land there is pretty steep and it would be quite a test it looks much flatter on the you tube shots , I used to live there <andI had an XR3i (no stereotype there)
I also get anoyed that all the money goes to a few cyclists for training, I would rather see loads of BMX tracks/xc/ local road clubs springing up with organised events that way you would develop strength from depth.
put the cash into grass roots
