Didn't realise the Road race was on so early, lucky I switched it on! Pogacar is, unsurprisingly, in the lead tongue.gif

Wout Van Aert has caught up with the main group now - if he can stay with them the win is almost certainly his.

McNulty and Carapaz appear to have made a definitive break - which means I've suddenly become a member of the Richard Carapaz fanclub!

Very happy for Carapaz - as much as I don't really support him as an INEOS rider it was good to see him riding for his country and getting them a rare Olympic gold.

Pogacar and Van Aert sprinted for silver, at which point I turned the telly off so not sure who got it!

Women's road race is tomorrow - very interested to see if it ends up being a Dutch sweep of the podium, they certainly have the talent to be able to pull it off.

Austria's Anna Kiesenhofer launched a remarkable solo breakaway to win road race gold on her Olympic debut, as Britain's Lizzie Deignan finished 11th.

The womens race was incredible - one of the biggest upsets I think I've ever seen! The lack of race radios really must have played a part though, we were all watching thinking they knew she was too far ahead but in actual fact they all thought they were fighting it out for gold ohmy.gif Delighted for Kiesenhofer though, managing to out-fox such a strong Dutch team isn't something that happens every day.

Fantastic to see Tom Pidcock winning Gold in the mountain biking! Two golds for Leodensians already *.*

Men's and Women's Time Trials start tomorrow - it'll take a lot to stop Filippo Ganna from taking gold I think! And if Chloe Dygert is still as good as she was a couple of years back she should probably take the women's.

Spent all afternoon watching the Men's Time Trial - such a gripping finale! Roglic blasted it out the park though and a massive well done to him after some disappointing recent results. Second to fifth were all so close though, very happy for Dumoulin taking the silver after taking some time away from the sport to recover mentally.

A GOLD in the BMX! ohmy.gif Didn't see that coming! Bethany Shriever taking the gold in the women's and Kai White taking silver in the men's as well, really is the story of the day.

Well done to both of them. That's an exciting unpredictable sport to watch.

Wow, GB have never won a medal in the BMX events before (it's only been in the programme since 2008 but still) so to go from that to nearly getting both gold medals is quite an incredible turnaround - also read that Shriever had to rely on crowdfunding to even get into the Olympics so what an achievement for her!

A gold medal in the BMX freestyle for Charlotte Worthington. I set my box to record the swimming finals but that was taking place at the same time so I got the bonus of seeing that as well this morning as if it was live.

Charlotte Worthington's high-scoring BMX routine was an incredible watch, that 360 backflip *.* great for her to pull it back with such a high after the previous run went wrong.
