Going to the Olympic Velodrome is weird. I feel like we should get on a plane and fly off somewhere to get to the Games.
A track is a track, and as a team pursuit rider I'm on the track a lot. But the London Olympic Velodrome is special.
From the outside, driving in, it looks good. The track feels good, too. It's similar to Newport's velodrome, which is handy as we'll have a holding camp there before the Olympics.
Each track is built slightly differently - longer straights maybe, or bigger bends - and the Olympic Velodrome is like Newport in that it has the same shape, except perhaps not as steep and a little more round.
