BBC commentary suggested that the Scratch race result would be altered to the sprint that we all thought we had seen: is that being discussed anywhere else?

all 4 races left have GB rides as hot favourites. Becky James must be the biggest suprise for improvement right?

I think the BBC just didn't understand what had happened. They should get vroome.exe on the team with his sharp eyes. :D

Considering where she was in 2012/13 and what she's been through since, with the injuries and all...not really. She's done well to make it back this quick

trott looked very powerful there.

also, why were the two individual sprint GB women not the team sprint? they look like they could have done a bit of damage.

Cracking ride from Trott in the pursuit. She looks the strongest by far.

Do you reckon Gaviria can appeal? I don't know the rules, so it's a genuine question

The crash caused by Cavendish. He wasn't involved but I've seen it in other sports before, when the guy who missed out appeals.

What on earth did Kennett do to get docked 20 points? I assume it was way worse than taking 3 other riders out..
