I wasn’t particularly excited about the Olympics, this year, but I just caught the last 15 or 20 minutes of the women’s road cycling race to see Nicole Cooke narrowly win our first gold medal in the middle of a downpour, and got completely caught up in it.
It’s magic. Never fails.

And a great effort it was too, Harry, in less than ideal conditions. Our own Aussie girl was tipped to be a contender but alas, couldn’t do it. Way to go, Nicole; it was a well-deserved win.
It made great TV. I don’t really know much about cycling, but apparently the British team is pretty strong this year, so I expect I’ll be seeing quite a lot of it over the next couple of weeks.
