Will the track events be available for viewing on-line?
I'm in the USA.

I think it'll probably depend on a couple of things. I'm pretty sure the BBC will be showing everything, but some will be on the red button/online, so it will be whether you can access the BBC streams or not and whether you get the BBC TV channels.

Best place to keep up to date will be here:

Almost certainly not in realtime.

Cycling as a whole may be the red heaed stepchild of sports coverage in the US, but track cycling seems the long forgotten red headed step child.

Can you guys not get BBC over there?


If not cyclingfans will probably have a live stream. :)

We get BBC America.

Which is Doctor Who some other programs and seemingly endless repeats of Top Gear.

I would imagine there will be a 2 min segment in the World news. Other than that no coverage on the BBC.

*Edit
Apparently CBS signed a highlights package deal in the last week or so. Youtube channel should be viewable

I'd suggest cyclingfans or a UK based Tor host then :cool:

I noticed the Aussie tandems had Perkins decals
so I'm assuming they were made by Mr. Daryl
Perkins (who rode the tandem sprint at the 1964
Olympics). If that indeed is the case, it is quite
a connection that Mr. Perkins has with the
Commonwealth Games:
-1966 Daryl wins sprint bronze
-1970 Daryl places 4th in kilo, & =5th in sprint
-2006 son Shane wins team sprint bronze
-2010 son Shane wins sprint gold
-2014 son Shane wins team sprint bronze,
and bike built by Daryl carries Australians
Modra and Niblett to tandem time trial silver.
(note: I didn't see the women's tandem sprint,
so I don't know if the Aussie bronze medalists
were riding a Perkins tandem or not.)

Happy for Annette Edmonson to get her gold yesterday, she really deserved it. Also quite pleased for her as she is absolutely stunning! ;)

Yes, my friend, and a fantastic final 500 metres by
Amy Cure burning everyone else off her wheel
and holding on for silver.

I quite enjoyed the men's tandem sprint. A lot
less aggro and argy-bargy than when it was last
in the Games (1978) but certainly no less speed
or excitement.
