If you saw Laura Trott in action at the Olympic velodrome today you have probably just witnessed the beginning of a gold medal career that will better Sir Chris Hoys. Bearing in mind that she is only twenty and has three to four more Olympics to come you can probably see where i am coming from. The fact is she is simply the hottest female track star of a generation and whilst its sad to see Victoria Pendleton retire it looks like her mantle (albeit in different disciplines) will be taken over by someone with even greater potential.
The whole Olympic games has been another magnificent triumph for British Cycling and despite the fact that the rules were drastically changed after the Beijing games to prevent one country (ie us!) from dominating the Brits rose to the challenge and equalled the 2008 medal haul.
Of course the icing on the cake is the utter demolition of those perma-tanned upstarts from Down Under. A Meare(s) one gold at the velodrome!!!
