New Zealand wins the team pursuit. It was a great final, although I didn't see the time I believe it was very fast.

The Aussies took the gold in the women's 4000 team pursuit.
The Brits were trying to keep up but their efforts cost them a rider at the 2500 mark.
A world record ride of 4:13.6! Three seconds faster than the Brits previous record.
Smashing it!

Pervis came from the back at the last second to take second in the second round.

In the final, Pervis jumped ahead on the final lap. Nobody could catch the Beast.

In the men's team pursuit:

Australia overtook the Germans on the last lap, enroute to a 3:54 finish. The Germans lost their third rider at the 3500 mark and never slowed down. The Aussies caught him up with a half lap to go. Bronze for Australia.

In the gold/silver match, New Zealand had the edge until the 2500 mark when the Brits pulled even and got up by half a second. But, New Zealand had a fast finish. The one Kiwi almost came off on the last switch, but they kept it from falling apart and the result is as you see below. New Zealand takes the Gold!

Pervis had a 2/10ths lead from the first 7 seconds and held it until he started to crack at the very end.
1:00.20
He couldn't walk he was so torn apart. Amazing performance by the Beast.

Pervis and Webster are added to tonight's sprinters, field of eight.

In women's omnium:

Trott took the pursuit followed by Edmondson, Wild, then Hammer.

Standings after two events:
Edmondson 70
Sharokova 66 (one of four riders who lapped the field this afternoon)
Wild 64
Hammer 60

Looks to be a tight race.
Trott is in 7th with 56 points.

The tale of the men's Individual Pursuit was actually written in the qualifying and, if anything, in Bobridge's hour record attempt. He was the fastest at 2km by nearly 4 seconds and even his 3rd km was one of the fastest but his closing km was only the 7th fastest even though he was a clear fastest qualifier.

In the final he went out even faster, 1.05.921 (1.06.259) to Keung's 1.09.322 and his 2nd km was marginally quicker than Keung (1.02.042 to 1.02.278) but the writing was already on the wall at 3km (3rd km 1.05.008 to Keung's 1.03.416) and it was even by 3750m.

Brave it may've been but one would've hope something may register somewhere inside his skull that "death or glory" efforts rarely end with the latter.
