The Ups and Downs of yesterday

Mainly Ups, thankfully as with Bradley Wiggins and Chris Foome on 1st and 2nd spot on the podium in Paris and the yellow jersey leading out Mark Cavendish for the stage win, things could hardly get better for British Cycling.  Surely the best day for British Sport since (at least ) 1966 and the 3 greatest active British sportsmen.
The Down?  Well attitudes here to racing still need to adjust to reflect the fact that cycling is no longer a 'foreign' sport.  Attitudes need to change most dramatically within the police.  On the same day of Britain's greatest sporting success for over a generation, the Surrey Police were stopping a Surrey League Road Race as my fellow blogger Rob Sharland reports


  1. Yes, bit of a shame, but the consensus seems to be that its not a good circuit and there have been issues before... So maybe it won't be used so much going forward. What is especially sad is hearing of club-mates hugely positive thoughts on the running of a stage race in Wales. People seem much happier to wait for bikes and are generally far more accepting - sadly that doesn't seem to be the way things go in the main down in SE England.

  3. Well the police did the bad thing and i think this sport should promoted more and more in the country at every level. Students should be encouraged to do this sport by giving all the facilities they should insured and get compensated if they get any kind of
