Winning women on wheels

I’ve just been watching the highlights of the women’s cycling from Beijing and cheering on Brits Emma Pooley and Nicole Cooke. Silver medallist Emma is so enthusiastic, it’s inspiring.

I hadn’t previously realised that each competitor is followed by a support car. Perhaps that’s what David Cameron had in mind…?

    Seconded. I cycle, and have raced in my time (not at all well) and the only way I could go as fast as either of those women is to ride off a nearby cliff.
