The other night The Husband and I, breathless with anticipation, headed to the Olympic velodrome to watch some of the greats in cycling.  I am a self-confessed cycle-head..every summer the Tour de France is always a must-watch..but I love the drama of the track as well.  This arena, made up of 4,000 individual pieces of wood is like entering a gladiatorial games, a place where heroes still roam, oozing comradery and confidence, earnt through guts, guile and hard work – the joy about cycling is it’s not just about the individual or being the fastest..sometimes you have to be the most cunning.  Laura Trott was the star of the night, winning every single one of her events, beating her great rival Marianne Vos into submission each time..Ben Swift won the men’s big event…how I love that magic touch of satisfaction..

Whilst we were cheering on the edge of our seats, the man in the row front of us wasn’t quite so happy..


 I think next time perhaps he needs to read the small print…
