...the very top. That final Olympic gold medal in the London velodrome last August in the keirin was the perfect way to end a career that has been filled with medals and greatness in the sport.
...it's finally some good sense from the corporation. The corporation should have been more honest about Hugh Porter's absence from the Track Cycling World Championships but would he'd have found that much harder to stomach the truth.
...the Track Cycling World Championships. It as after the men could only pick up the silver medal in the team pursuit, well beaten by the Australians in the final, that it hit rock bottom. The all conquering Olympic squad were dead and buried.
...Wiggo? Bradley Wiggins' share of the Sports Personality of the Year vote didn't quite match Mark Cavendish's when he won the award last but then Mark didn't have Olympic gold medal winners to compete with.
...or is it a disorder? What are we left with after these last two weeks of the best Olympics ever but memories and the realisation that all there is now doesn't match up.
...he got right in the column. Don't know how long Des Lynam's column about the BBC broadcasting of the Olympics was but in classic Twitter mob style they picked out about the only sentence in the whole piece that was accurate.
...and their heirs have stepped in seamlessly. Sir Chris Hoy and Queen Victoria Pendleton have mixed final day of their Olympic careers with gold and silver while their understudies show there's more to come with double gold.
...on the track. Nah it's not those three golds in the Olympic stadium that will be getting all the attention today and many will claim to be the moments of the games. It's Dani King, Laura Trott and Joanna Rowsell.
...day after day in the velodrome. Victoria Pendleton, the women's and men's team pursuit produced one hell of a night as they delivered gold medals and world records.
...it's a good old get out clause. Philip Hindes. Did he or didn't he pull a fast one in that qualifying round? Does it matter as GB trio produced one of the great displays in the first night in the velodrome.
...the icing and the hundred and thousands. The toppings on the cake of British road cycling have just been piling up this year, with Bradley Wiggins adding the Olympic time trial gold yesterday.
...even worse to watch. It was excruciating watching Great Britain - no Team GB here - being thwarted by their own success in the men's road race on the first full day of the Olympics. Not just because Mark Cavendish didn't have a chance to win.
...not 9 months. Been reading a few people disagreeing that Bradley Wiggins victory in the Tour de France is the top sporting achievement by a Brit. His addition of Le Tour to three other race wins means he's done something no other rider has ever achieved.
...for the perfect finish. Mark Cavendish owns the Champs-Élysées and it was up to Bradley Wiggins in the yellow jersey to make sure he won for the fourth straight time in the Tour's final stage.
...doesn't matter. Females or no females I've said it before and I'll say it again. There's only one winner. Cav. The Manx Missile. Mark Cavendish.
