Good luck to the British Road teams for this weekend!
With the men tomorrow we have one of the strongest teams in the Olympics … National Champ Ian Stannard, joins Tour de France team Chris Froome, David Millar and Wiggo to hopefully lead out Cav for a win in front of the palace. Lots of VCN members will be on the roadside in London cheering them on…
Then on Sunday we have our own Emma Pooley riding with Lizzie Armistead, Lucy Martin and 2008 gold medallist Nicole Cooke in the women’s event. Emma joined the VCN training ride last Saturday whilst she was in Norwich before heading down to the GB holding camp. Let’s hope a Norfolk ride was the just the setup she needs for Sunday, although her eyes will also be on the time trial in a few days time.
Here’s to what should be a thrilling kick off to the games!… And if you aren’t in London then the TV timings are here.
