Great coverage, fab location and some great racing....

I was impressed with the GB ladies but a bit underwhelmed by the male team...

Really enjoyed the bits I managed to catch, particularly some of the junior races. The individual breakaway in the ladies race was especially gutsy.

Not a big fan of the bike changing set up for the TT though. In my view bike changes should only be for mechanical reasons and then to a bike of the same spec.

5th place for Ben Swift was a pretty good result. From the overhead shot it looked like he got badly boxed in on the last corner, so maybe could have been in the medals with better positioning.

A fit Cav might have been able to get over that last climb with the main bunch to contest the sprint, but we don't have too many riders that could be considered favourites in a one day race. Next year's course looks like it could favour a GC rider, so maybe one for Froome?

I wonder how much energy Swift lost trying to recover after that final climb. It is interesting that with a less effective team display, the men got the better reward for their efforts. And yes, Cav may have made a better hash of it...but the team would have needed to be a bit more prominent to have got him there. It was certainly a Sagan kind of race...

Hannah Barnes had a great race, but at the last made an error of judgement that may have cost her a medal...shame...

Good to see Chris Boardman genuinely seem to enjoy his time there, as he has a really sh** week ahead of him.

Indeed.

In my years in the industry, he was a rare beacon of integrity and humility.

Trial postponed for another month now - what a nightmare.
