At the Games watching my nephew compete in the Table Tennis for England!!! Go PAUL!!!

Looking forward to the Road Race on Sunday but it looks like a very tough, hilly circuit in very heavy rain...

Archibald, what a star in the making
Pooley, there are not words...

so tough that only 12 men finished
(anyone more than 10 minutes behind the leader at the end of a lap got pulled out of the race

Full action replays available here, for a while at least: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/commonw ... s/28230008

We only counted 11 finishing, it looked a lot tougher in the flesh than ever it did on TV!!

Someone had put a sign on Montrose Street...
"Col de Montrose Street - Pure Dead Steep". To have to ride up that a dozen times, at any speed, even without the rest of it...
