I wouldn't call it worrying as it is evidently a transition stage for GB, but it was clear which team is better and I don't think any amount of training can fix that. Clancy was never the strongest rider in the team and though Burke is strong I don't think he ever rivaled guys like Wiggins or Thomas. Tennant seems to be good but he wasn't good enough to make the Olympic finals team . It will remain to be seen whether Harrison, Dibben and the other new guys can develop and rival the class of 08 and 12.

Good ride by GB in the ladies considering that Vicky has mostly raced only at junior level. There is a lack of top sprint riders though for the women sprinting, it may have been that though the UCI may not have received the desired effect by expanding the Women's disciplines for 2012 it may reap the rewards in 2016.

Yeh I found that a bit lame. It is not like a catch is made just every Individual Pursuit final.

Whoa! Awesome. Was that ride the fastest ever at sea level?

I think that is doing a bit of a disservice to the Aussie team. I believe they were missing Rohan Dennis and Jack Bobridge. Clancy has always been one of the stronger guys and quite often takes bigger turns.

And although this can be seen as the start of the 'Road to Rio' this is still the World Championships and a chance to win a rainbow jersey. There are not many big track events and other than the Olympics this is as big as it gets.

It's the way the funding works in the UK, I'm not saying it's right.

The fact such a high proportion of big names can't even be bothered to turn up, and the lack of posting volume here rather gives the lie to the pretence that this is a particularly important competition.

Other than 1, 0 is as big as it gets in the binary system, and it ain't that big.

Discussion here if this thread is boring you:
Disappointing 6th by Men's sprint considering 2 of the 3 are Olympic champions.

I don't know about Clancy. Also are Dennis & Bobridge continuing on the track at least for the time being. Considering their potentials I do not see either of them doing it but a lot could happen. Then again the British guys won gold, whilst the Aussies are yet to win it.
