Not much of a surprise. Clancy, Burke, Doull, Wiggins: 3:50.570.
GB v Australia for Gold, NZ vs Denmark for Bronze.
Who was it who said that it was impossible for GB to match the 7 golds from London? Suddenly, that looks quite feasible. Team Sprint (check), Team Pursuit, Kenny in the sprint, Kenny in the kierin all seem likely. Cavendish in the omnium is quite possible too.
The women’s side is tougher, with no Team Sprint entry and with Becky James’ form unknown. Bu it’s certainly possible that James will come out and dominate while the Team Pursuiters look like certs. Add on Laura Trott, and 7 or 8 goals does not seem out of reach.
