I have watched very little of the Olympic cycling events because I simply couldn’t care less about all this never ending sport being forced into my eyes and ears all day long. All this cycling talk on my Facebook news feed is just as bad as when the football world cup is on.
All I have watched is the last 20km of the mens road race, it was a bit of a let down because of the lack of graphics and the end wasn’t particularly exciting but I think the fact that Team GB blew it proved that racing is more exciting without race radio. Had they all had earpieces I’m sure Cav would have been in the sprint.
I really do wish I had been there to watch though, Chris Lanaway was and he shot these great photos which capture the atmosphere as much as the racing.
