That's what you get, don't apply the rules, and riders will mess with them

It's a big call to DQ the German now after letting the last two get away with it

Any rules regarding first and 2nd false runs?

It seems like a silly rule - why not have a specific point on the track rather than a variable time when the bike might or might not come off?

I'd be pissed if I were Eilers and got DQ'd after seeing neither of Awang and Kenny being taken out

Not convinced he was ahead before the line, but the angle is poor

Can they at least neutralize the finishing times?

I is a specific point. 2,5 laps before the finish. There is a white line. Your front wheel can't cross that line before the derny has fully passed it.

British dominance is more ridiculous than the Dutch speed skaters

Only 6 golds out of a possible ten :(

Guess we'll have to make the wheels even rounder next time. :D

Rules don't apply for British cyclists?
- Froome can run and gets the time of other riders
- Cavendish can slam someone out of an event
- Arminstead can miss 3 doping tests
- Kenny can pass the derny

Yep's it not just the drugs. It's also the fact that rules seem to be completely different for British cyclists.

100% he should have been dq'd. however, when it was a fair race he beat a bunch of giants. also the house of Kenny and Trott is now in the top 10 in the medal table.
