Anyone there? Got some behind the scenes pics for us? New tech? (I really want to see the shoes the Kiwis are wearing)

A scandal that the Brits and Germans were disq'd from the team sprint. Scrap the rule or extend the area riders can change in - let the best riders win.

I guess the only problem with that philosophy is that if they extended it and someone still made a mistake, people would still be screaming about how unfair it was and that the limits should be changed until people could change anywhere on the track.

These are extremely experienced riders but like everyone in this world, occasionally they mess up. It just happens that this was on the world stage so it was a little more obvious.
