UCI World Cup Classics 2/3

Wow, the past 2 nights racing has been even better than Friday night's session. The GB squads have now won 15 out of 18 Golds and many more silver and bronze medals. Well done GB!!

Results -
Team pursuit - GOLD Ed Clancy, Rob Hayles, Geraint Thomas & Steven Burke 2:58.761
Team sprint - GOLD Jamie Staff, Jason Kenny & Ross Edgar 44.306
Points race - GOLD Chris Newton 58pts
Madison - 6th Brad Wiggins, Geraint Thomas
500TT - GOLD Victoria Pendleton 19.597
Womens team sprint - GOLD Jessica Varnish & Anna Blyth 34.352
Womens keirin - GOLD Victoria Pendleton, 5th Anna Blyth
Womens scratch race - GOLD Elizabeth Armitstead, BRONZE Alexandra Greenfield
Mens international keirin - GOLD Matt Crampton, SILVER Ross Edgar

It has been an excellent weekend of racing with some spectacular crashes including Jason Kenny's gold-winning slide across the finish line in the sprint with Shane Perkins & another crash in the Madison, but that's the life of a cyclist!

In terms of more autographs for me, I managed to obtain Ed Clancy and Geraint Thomas's, although there isn't a picture of me with them as I let Paul stay to take pictures of the racing rather than tag along with me to the area where the guys were.
