Default European Championships.

Ongoing in Appledorn.

GB won the team pursuit by doing a Rorger Bannister mile - beating the 4 minute target by a hundredth of a second.

The story is beginning again, just as it did 14 years ago

..and also the Women's Team Pursuit and Team Sprint.

I didn't see the men's team sprint qualifying but GB complained unsuccessfully about the starting gates - which have now been replaced by coaches pushing their proteges off the starting line (in the case of the Russian women's sprint team)

ya, that Russian push was crazy, can't believe they didn't call that back. both points races were great. congrats to Romanyuta, she controlled the womens race, chasing down a bunch of attacks and still having it for the sprints, and Ratajczyk crashed, got back in and kicked *** for the win in the mens race. online coverage starts at 20:00 cest tonight on http://sports-livez.com/channel/ch-3.php

They were probably right...they were replaced after the german got blocked two times for the sprint final...Really a disgrace
The point races were both also really good,great work by the russian for winning after his fall early in the race!
