Though it’s slightly out of the scope of this blog, I had to post a little something about the UCI track cup in Cali (Colombia). Partly because real newspapers like the BBC only care about their national teams, but mostly because I wish I had been there.

Ditto for the men’s keirin. Well, no crash, just a great photo-finish sprint:
