Bubble in the desert

A blog I started whilst on a GE "Bubble" assignment in Nevada. I'm back in Cambridge (UK) now but still miss the desert and my friends out there.

Cambridge's Emma Pooley Instrumental in Olympic Gold for Nicole Cook

I've been waiting all day for the iplayer to upload the Women's Road Racing.

An excellent race in very difficult conditions. Early on Emma Pooley, from Cambridge Triathlon Club, split the field early on making a very brave break on the climb and forcing the rest of the pack to respond. Nicole Cook was able to tuck in to the main pack knowing her team mate was ahead.

Road cycling is really a team event, much the same as in the Tour De France. Emma worked really hard for her team mate and Nicole Cook played a very wise and strong race. An awesome effort.

For more Cambridge Triathlete's at the Olympics watch out for Will Clarke tomorrow night in the triathlon. Many of us in the club are learning how to place a bet at the bookies for that one!

Hi Carl,

The mens tri is on the 19th - not tomorrow. Didn't want you getting up early for no reason!
