Evening with Darryl, John & Trevor (Rob couldn’t make it) at the first of the weekends track racing at the Olympic Velodrome at Stratford. After spending most of the day in Chelsea I met up with the guys at Waterloo and we travelled over to Stratford, had a quick meal and went to the track.

The racing was pretty good, although not a full-house as there were a few empty seats. The tussle between Marianne Vos and Laura Trott was good in the omnium with Laura showing who was boss. Alex Dowsett raced in the Madison but they were dominated by the team from Madison-Genesis.

There was also an amateur team pursuit competition which was also entertaining especially the final between which Loughborough won by a very small margin.
