I just hope Cav's move to OPQS will give him to opportunity to get back on the boards, him and Iljo would be unstoppable in the 6-days
I believe it was the track world cup event a couple of years ago where Britain fielded two teams.. one called GB and one called Team Sky.
Though the Team Sky one consisted of Vicky, Hoy rather than actually the riders from Team Sky.
