So much action in the 2016 Track Cycling Worlds! I put up links and videos from the first two days (and was slightly scuppered when British Cycling took down all their content…) but there was tons more racing – here’s what I found from the later races.
This week we catch up on the highs and lows of Strade Bianche (which was an AMAZING race), and also talk about a little bit of controversy that befell several riders. There’s the last of the Track World Championships to cover, and there’s some interesting news about electric bikes and a great story out of the US about Black Girls Do Bike. Also Dan possibly challenges a commentator to a fight. There’s heaps to catch up on, so strap yourself in and enjoy! (1:08:16 MIN / 62.48 MB)

Dead Sea-Scorpion Pass, with incredible scenery
It’s been a a great couple of days from the Track World Champs in Cali, with all kinds of action – and it’s been strangely affected by the weather. Track riders are usually in these very tightly controlled environments, with perfect heat and humidity, but the Cali velodrome has a roof, but no walls, so there have been issues with wind that riders will never usually have to deal with.
I’ve got a collection of videos and links from the women’s scratch race, team sprint, team pursuit and 500m – and remember, if you want to watch the next three days live, here’s my guide.
I’m starting with my favourite race so far, and the first medal race of Worlds, the women’s scratch:
