30 seconds could be very decisive. Only 26 seconds separated Nibali, Horner and Kreuziger this year. In fact the TTT very nearly cost Nibali victory.

I have no idea why people are bothering to prove anything to Ryo.
He's brilliant.

but wiggins is going to lose more than seconds outside of the ttt and itt, depending on the course, but if it's like last year, then yes.

Nothing for Geraint Thomas or Ed Clancy? They are both MBEs already but I would have thought an OBE would have been awarded as they have done with Jason Kenny who was also already an MBE. Burke and Kennaugh got MBEs

They along with Chris Hoy are the only gold medalists not included (though Chris Hoy is already a knight so not much else they could do there!)

Heard about Wiggo's Knighthood on the radio.
Dunno why it made me laugh!
Those wacky Brits!

I guess that an individual gold is ranked more highly so it warrants an OBE. Laura Trott was awarded an OBE, but her teammates in the pursuit were awarded a MBE.
