As a cyclist you obviously watch the Olympics, right?

    Thread of a work email discussion I had with a colleague this afternoon (oldest at the bottom). Made me laugh anyway.

    Most of it.... when I can.

    I do prefer road events over velodrome although I can see that 'drome events can be better as a spectator event. I've enjoyed the Triathlons events as well as the cyclign specific.

    Overall I think the women's road, and the men's TT have been most exciting to watch?

    Bald, bespectacled pundit? I think I remember seeing Jamie Staff sitting next to Mark C.

    Apparently you're correct. The conversation continued, revealing Anne's motives...

    Actually I just switched the telly on and there he was still sitting alongside Cavendish. And now they've swapped events and they're talking about a beautiful extended trot. I want to see the other Trott!

    Watching as much of the cycling as I can, plus a bit of athletics of an evening if there is anything interesting on.

    Team GB do look quite supreme in the velodrome.

    Haven't we had a medal in every event, in the velodrome, but one?

    First Olympics I have watched in 20 years and only started watching because of the cycling.
    I have to say hat it has been brilliant.
    Team GB are really excelling and to get us to third in the medals table ( of course, only by stealing all of the Aussie coaches and using round wheels - unlike the French) there have been some phenomenal performances from our guys, especially in the cycling and running (and Heptathlon).

    Well done them all

    Jamie Staff. Ever so slightly more than a mere pundit.
