The pounce, With over one lap to go, no response from the competition and it was all over.

What a great race? Sadly, I only managed to catch the crucial last 245 kms.

Apparently the French sports daily L'Equipe rates all big races out of 5 stars and gave this one a 6.

Hi,
Worlds track
TV coverage is limited to BBC on Thursday 21st BBC Four 19 to 2100.
The BBC Two coverage on Thursday 15 to 1645 seems to have gone to gymnastics.
Coverage starts on Wednesday but you'll have to go on the iPlayer website or app et cetera.
Unless of course you're paying to view.
Why they couldn't put all of it on say BBC Four I don't know?
I suppose this is BBC's way of getting you used to using the five player et cetera, for when the BBC become fully commercial?
