CHRIS BOARDMAN IN BOARDMAN’S BAR


Another video from today’s Track World Cup in Manchester — we get to chat with the legendary Chris Boardman as he reminisces over his long-standing Individual Pursuit world record which was recently broken by Jack Bobridge.
GERAINT THOMAS PURSUIT 

I can already tell there’s going to be tons of media coming out of the Track World Cup in Manchester.  This shot by Tom Jenkins is one of my favorite images so far: Britain’s Geraint Thomas riding the qualifying round for the Men’s Individual Pursuit.

See some more photos at The Guardian.

KEEPING TRACK OF POINTS


As a spectator, the Points Race is one of the toughest events to follow. It can’t be much easier for officials either — which is why they need such an extensive crew at the UCI World Cup to keep track of everything that’s going on. Matt Rendell gives us a behind-the-scenes look at what is involved in keeping score at the Manchester Velodrome.

The UCI Track World Cup is well underway now and results from the morning session of Day 1 can be found here.

THIS WEEK IN MANCHESTER


The final round of the 2010-2011 UCI Track World Cup will bring out the fastest riders from nations around the globe. Of course those of you across the pond will be lucky enough to catch it on the telly. Hopefully I’ll be able to find some kind of live internet stream.

NEXT WEEK: MANCHESTER TRACK WORLD CUP


The last of the 2010-2011 World Cup Classics is next week. This is gonna be a big race day for all competing countries. The British team is looking to dominate their home turf with their strongest track squad ever. Meanwhile Australia is sending in their ace riders, hoping to make examples of their British rivals.

BEIJING WORLD CUP


Finally some media showing up from last weekend’s UCI World Cup at Laoshan Velodrome in Beijing. Even though it seems like none of the top competing countries really sent in their A-teams (except for Canada), I would love to see some EuroSport coverage from the event. See the full results at Tissot Timing.
