I spend most of the backend of the week and the weekend catching up with the World Track Cycling Championships from Minsk.
We were hoping to go but getting there proved so convoluted and expensive, we scrapped the idea. There’s not many in the crowd, so clearly everyone else felt the same.
Still it was an amazing weekend for GB but especially for the new youngsters like Becky James, who won four medals including two golds.
Simon Yates who got a superb Points Race gold and of course our all conquering Women’s Pursuit Team.
Even the old man of the team Jason Kenny at 24, took gold in Keirin.
Later we meet some friends for a Thai 'Sunday Lunch' at the Hemlock Stone. The food was again excellent, although a bit on the ‘diet’ side, so I had to do my own cheeseboard when we got home.
