If Swift or Cavendish were to ride any team event on the track it would be the Team Pursuit. Certainly not the Team Sprint!

Jess Varnish and Laura Trott, underlined the fact that whilst the GB women team will miss Pendleton, she was not be be all and end all.

Great results ladies. Some good depth to this squad

Was at the event on Sunday....

Thought that Trott had gone way too deep in the 3K as her post race collapse looked worse than usual but she pulled it together.

Boeticher looked pretty awesome - so smooth

End of a long day, of a long week

Anyone else think Swift could be a decent Omnium rider? He's proved himself at most of the distance events. Surely it's easier to train and improve on the TT's?

Going back to his tiem as a Junior.

Points race covered, scratch race covered.
Plus some TP experience.

I'd say he is shape to be a pretty good all rounder on the track. (with appropriate fine tuning of training)
