The crowd on both sides now have just going mad. They can't smile as

:00:59.:01:08.

they come up to the line. They are allowing themselves to think, we

:01:08.:01:17.

are Olympic champions! Great Britain into the record books.

:01:17.:01:22.

Great Britain are the Olympic champions and it could not go to

:01:22.:01:28.

more worthy winners. Helen Glover and Heather Stanning, we stand up

:01:28.:01:33.

and so Luke shook for the British rowing team and for the country.

:01:33.:01:43.

The dead - salute you. Wasn't that just remarkable?

:01:43.:01:50.

We may have had to wait until day 5 but that was well worth the wait.

:01:50.:01:57.

Not just a gold medal but a victory of breathtaking dominance. And now

:01:57.:02:04.

we're off the mark let us hope that a gold medals are like London buses.

:02:04.:02:13.

He is the master of the time trial. The master of the Tour de France.

:02:13.:02:19.

Bradley Wiggins rides into the record books!

:02:19.:02:23.

We have waited a long time for this one up and the sad to note it could

:02:23.:02:33.
:02:33.:02:36.

easily be two. I hope you have got you're Golden sideburns ready.

:02:37.:02:40.

Back to the road now and the women's time-trial has just

:02:40.:02:48.

finished. The great hope for Great Britain was Emma Pooley. She is so

:02:48.:02:55.

talented on the road and actually has a P.H. D in soil Engineering!

:02:55.:03:04.

She was silver medallist in 2008 in Beijing. She really is a crime.

:03:04.:03:14.
:03:14.:03:18.

This does not play to her strength. -- a climber. Sadly she was just in

:03:18.:03:26.

second place in this stage. It has been a dramatic road race. We can't

:03:26.:03:35.

explain what else will be going on there a little later on. -- we can.

:03:35.:03:39.

Lizzie Armitstead was also competing for Great Britain and

:03:39.:03:44.

would have been desperate to follow up her silver medal from the road

:03:44.:03:51.

race. Kirsten Armstrong was the real star as far as the United

:03:51.:03:55.

States was concerned. She put in an absolutely stunning performance.

:03:55.:04:02.

That was how things got going as far as the women were concerned.

:04:02.:04:10.

Let us hear from bezique arms debt. -- from Lizzie Armitstead.

:04:10.:04:16.

This was not your preferred event. How was it for you as much it was

:04:16.:04:25.

really awful. The time trial rests on my team, their mentality and the

:04:25.:04:30.

way they train, you have to put yourself through some dark places

:04:30.:04:36.

in your mind to get through that. I saw that it was 10 kilometres to go

:04:36.:04:43.

and I could not believe it. I have never felt such pain. It is very

:04:43.:04:47.

competitive at the moment, very close. It does not look as though

:04:47.:04:51.

Emma Pooley has been able to crack this one. It was not really suited

:04:51.:04:58.

for her. She was fantastic in the road race

:04:58.:05:01.

and played a big difference such it would have been good to see her on

:05:01.:05:08.

the podium. But the level at the moment is just incredible. To be

:05:08.:05:11.

successful on a course not suited to you was always going to be a

:05:11.:05:17.

Challenge. Well congratulations and a sterling

:05:17.:05:22.

effort. She was never really expected to excel in that time

:05:22.:05:28.

trial. But could Emma Pooley hang on in their? This is what happened

:05:28.:05:34.

on in their? This is what happened in the concluding part of the race.

:05:35.:05:44.
:05:45.:05:53.

31 seconds off the pace of the Russian. That is an incredible ride.

:05:53.:06:03.
:06:03.:06:04.

She is going to be really happy with that.

:06:04.:06:14.
:06:14.:06:15.

We wait now Villumsen. She was silver medallist in Copenhagen 12

:06:16.:06:25.

months ago. She drives on for the line. The Russian it is still going

:06:25.:06:29.

to beat in the gold medal position. It is going to be close but I

:06:29.:06:39.
:06:39.:06:41.

reckon if she is going to go silver at this stage. Second for Villumsen.

:06:41.:06:51.
:06:51.:06:52.

What a finish we are in for it here. She is going to be very nervous now.

:06:52.:06:58.

It is a would say the best performance of her career. Is she

:06:58.:07:08.
:07:08.:07:08.

going to get a medal? Look at this very narrow section of the course.

:07:08.:07:14.

The crowds massive as they wait for the arrival of the two serious

:07:14.:07:24.
:07:24.:07:24.

medal contenders still out on the course. Judith's aunt, a top podium

:07:24.:07:34.
:07:34.:07:38.

finisher - Arndt. She is so versatile.

:07:38.:07:41.

Armstrong just has a handful of minutes to get the last bit of

:07:41.:07:51.
:07:51.:07:55.

effort out. I think that is Marianne Vos. What

:07:55.:08:05.
:08:05.:08:08.

an incentive that would be to try to pull out pure speed. Armstrong

:08:08.:08:15.

is going to catch the world champion. I'm waiting to see that.

:08:15.:08:25.
:08:25.:08:31.

I think it was Marianne Vos. Of course she was caught by Arndt.

:08:31.:08:41.
:08:41.:08:42.

So the Russian leading, New Zealand in second place. And this is

:08:42.:08:47.

Armstrong sweeping past Marianne Vos. Marianne Vos has been caught

:08:47.:08:52.

with three minutes via Armstrong were just squeezes through. She is

:08:52.:08:57.

just going to take the shortest line around this course. That was a

:08:57.:09:07.
:09:07.:09:13.

great incentive for her in the closing stages. And it is a quick

:09:13.:09:23.
:09:23.:09:28.

time for Judith Arndt. Here it comes. She goes into the lead. She

:09:28.:09:38.
:09:38.:09:39.

has taken at seven seconds off the time. And now the defending

:09:39.:09:48.

champion, Kristen Armstrong. can see the experience now. She has

:09:48.:09:55.

time to pace beautifully over the distance.

:09:55.:10:05.
:10:05.:10:07.

And we confirm the medal positions. Villumsen in bronze and must be

:10:07.:10:15.

biting her nails now. She is a fighter and desperately

:10:15.:10:21.

wants this. She looked solid in the road race at the weekend. And it is

:10:21.:10:27.

very good. It looks as if Christen Armstrong is going to maintain her

:10:27.:10:33.

title. And retain the crown as the Olympic champion and win her second

:10:33.:10:42.

Olympic gold medal. Coming up to the line now. Armstrong at of the

:10:42.:10:47.

United States wins the Gold Medal digging 15 seconds off the time of

:10:47.:10:57.
:10:57.:11:10.

the German Judith Arndt. Villumsen pushed down to fourth.

:11:10.:11:16.

What a ride. Celebrations beginning to unfold.

:11:16.:11:22.

Your face says it all, a bitter disappointment for you there.

:11:22.:11:26.

We always knew the course was never going to be necessarily suited to

:11:26.:11:33.

you. You prefer something with more climbing in it. How hard was it?

:11:33.:11:41.

You always have to push hard. I did that. I do not think I could have

:11:41.:11:47.

gone any faster. In the time-trial you cannot affect

:11:47.:11:52.

anyone else. You just write your best. I'm disappointed. But if

:11:52.:11:57.

someone else is better, good on them and they deserved to win.

:11:57.:12:02.

Lizzie Armitstead was St UWE Road so well for her in a road race. It

:12:02.:12:08.

is difficult to back it up when you put in that kind of effort.

:12:08.:12:12.

I was pleased to be able to help Lizzie Armitstead get the medal and

:12:12.:12:19.

she fully deserves silver. The time-trial on Box Hill would

:12:19.:12:24.

have been better for me. But the support out there is fantastic. I

:12:24.:12:29.

support out there is fantastic. I have never heard so much noise!

:12:29.:12:32.

really feel for her there. She would have been desperate to match

:12:32.:12:39.

or to better that silver from Beijing. But in the end she

:12:39.:12:45.

finished 6th which she was clearly disappointed about. Christopher

:12:45.:12:49.

Armstrong from the United States managed to pull it out when it

:12:49.:12:57.

mattered. Emma Pooley disappointed there.

:12:57.:13:03.

Nicole Cooke is with me. You'll have grabbed a few minutes. A

:13:04.:13:09.

fantastic win by Armstrong. It is very hard for Emma Pooley, she gave

:13:09.:13:14.

it her absolute everything. It is just one of the worst moments in

:13:14.:13:24.
:13:24.:13:28.

sport when that happens. But it was Kristin Armstrong. She started fast,

:13:28.:13:32.

steady through the second section and finished strongly. It was an

:13:33.:13:37.

incredible ride and a great continuation of her career. She is

:13:37.:13:42.

now a double Olympic champion. And a thrilling finale for the podium

:13:42.:13:52.
:13:52.:13:52.

as well. Looking forward to the men's race,

:13:52.:13:59.

and Bradley Wiggins goes in it as the favourite. He is the favourite.

:13:59.:14:08.

He is probably thinking he just cannot wait to get started. He

:14:08.:14:13.

really has a serious chance of getting a gold medal in the time-

:14:13.:14:17.

trial. And Chris Froome may even have snatched an adult as well. It

:14:18.:14:24.

will be interesting to see how they both get on. It is important to

:14:24.:14:27.

mention it Chris Froome because he did come second in the Tour de

:14:27.:14:34.

France. Looking up the other rivals, of Fabien Cancellara from

:14:34.:14:39.

Switzerland, he broke his collarbone earlier in the year. He

:14:39.:14:44.

went down in the road race and we thought he may have damaged his

:14:44.:14:53.

collarbone again. How strong is he looking? Physically he is probably,

:14:53.:14:58.

he's got the legs but it just depends how he can hold it together

:14:58.:15:02.

and get through the pain. I am sure he will give it absolutely

:15:02.:15:07.

everything. You would not want to count him out but it is not an

:15:07.:15:11.

ideal man up into one of the biggest races. Tony Martin Laird

:15:11.:15:16.

from Germany, he helped the team a little in the road race but he

:15:16.:15:22.

broke his wrist earlier and says he is still in pain. Will he provide a

:15:22.:15:27.

particular Challenge? He is the reigning world champion. And again

:15:27.:15:32.

he is the rider who has not had an amazing season this year. So a

:15:32.:15:37.

little bit of an outsider. But he is a champion and perhaps cannot

:15:37.:15:47.
:15:47.:15:47.

raise his game on the day. Well we Now hopes are high for British

:15:47.:15:52.

boxing at the games not least because Great Britain can call on

:15:52.:15:58.

the power and presence of Antony Joshua. It is a traditionally sport

:15:58.:16:02.

for Ireland too. We will see one of their rising stars but first here

:16:02.:16:12.
:16:12.:16:12.

is what it is all about. Boxing. Only amateur boxers and boxers

:16:12.:16:15.

competing in the world series can compete at the Olympic Games. And

:16:15.:16:20.

for the first time in Olympic history, London 2012, we will see

:16:20.:16:27.

female boxers competing. Olympic boxers wear red or blue, all wear a

:16:27.:16:32.

head-guard and vest and use ten ounce gloves. Men's bouts are

:16:32.:16:37.

fought over three, 3 minute rounds while the women's will be over four

:16:37.:16:42.

two minute rounds. One referee will control the bout inside the ring

:16:42.:16:46.

and five judge also score outside the ring. Using an electronic

:16:46.:16:54.

scoring system. To score a point the knuckle area of a glove has to

:16:54.:16:57.

hit the for get area. The person with the most points at the end of

:16:57.:17:04.

the bout wins. If a boxer is knocked down and fails to get up

:17:04.:17:09.

within a ten second count, they automatically loose. If a coach

:17:09.:17:12.

feels their boxer should not continue, they will concede defeat

:17:12.:17:21.

by throwing in the towel at any point except during a count. If you

:17:21.:17:28.

would like to get involved in Olympic sports go to the website.

:17:28.:17:33.

Here with go. Time for live boxing, always one of the most popular

:17:33.:17:35.

sport of the popular questions I have had on Twitter for the past

:17:35.:17:39.

couple of weeks is why are the scores no longer displayed on

:17:39.:17:43.

screen? I do understand it makes it hard to follow the fight, it is

:17:43.:17:47.

just to keep the judging fair and impartial which is something that

:17:47.:17:53.

we all want to see. So let us head to the ExCel centre, we are live,

:17:53.:17:59.

if you look, we are about to see one of the Irish superstars,

:17:59.:18:09.
:18:09.:18:14.

bantamweight fighter John Joe a preliminary contest. And for both

:18:14.:18:22.

of these men it is the second Olympic Games. Youngest Irish boxer

:18:22.:18:32.
:18:32.:18:37.

in Beijing four years ago. He qualified for London through the

:18:37.:18:47.
:18:47.:18:56.

contest. In the boxing tournament in the Olympic Games. And this is

:18:56.:19:02.

going to be a tough one for Ireland. The 23-year-old in his second

:19:02.:19:07.

Olympic Games and he has had two world bronze medals in 2009 and the

:19:07.:19:13.

one last year, from Baku earned him the right to be here. His opponent

:19:13.:19:17.

qualified through the world series of boxing division, which is a

:19:17.:19:22.

hybrid division, a kind of hybrid tournament set up by the amateur

:19:22.:19:32.
:19:32.:19:44.

international boxing association, nine male boxer, two women, Ireland

:19:44.:19:50.

with five male boxers and the four time woman's champion Katie Taylor.

:19:50.:19:55.

Even in, hands low, economical style. Came comfortableibly against

:19:55.:20:05.

the Danish boxer in his opening contest, 21-6 and his opponent got

:20:05.:20:12.

rid of his man 15-7. Even in can't afford to fall short. This Kazakh,

:20:12.:20:16.

he is a counter puncher, southpaw, a nightmare opponent to be honest,

:20:16.:20:24.

if you fall short with your attack here, he comes back his counter. He

:20:24.:20:28.

is skilful this Kazakh boxer. He will feint. He wants you to lead

:20:28.:20:32.

wauf the jab and he will counter you with the right hook. It is

:20:33.:20:35.

important that even in is accurate, fast with the feet, gets in with

:20:35.:20:41.

the shots like that one and can't afford to fall short here. In his

:20:41.:20:46.

opening contest even in, the Irishman dominated the centre of

:20:46.:20:51.

the ring. He now is being forced to move round and his opponent is

:20:51.:20:57.

taking centre ring. A different tactic from even in. Fast feet from

:20:57.:21:02.

the Kazakh. Lost in his opening contest four years to a Cuban,

:21:02.:21:07.

whereas even in beat an Algerian boxer and went on to be defeated

:21:07.:21:16.

only by 9-2. The closest contest. It's the right tactic what even in

:21:16.:21:21.

is doing. He is not lunging in and being careless. That was not a bad

:21:21.:21:25.

counter. What he has to do more of is edge closer and feint with his

:21:25.:21:33.

jab, he has to draw the lead of the Kazakh and throw down the pipe. He

:21:33.:21:40.

must draw the opponent on to the shot. Like most southpaws the boxer

:21:40.:21:46.

from Caz -- Kazakhstan is waiting for him to come to him. He is

:21:46.:21:54.

hoping to get that left counter across. Even in has sin ter ring.

:21:54.:22:01.

Even in. Not much in this Not at all. The Kazakh nearly lost his

:22:01.:22:06.

balance. Even in has moved away and is that going to make a difference

:22:06.:22:11.

he has won it by 5-2, the Irishman. Even he will be delighted with that

:22:11.:22:16.

in the corner with Billy wash, they will be chuffed about that. What a

:22:16.:22:24.

good opening round. -- Billy Walsh: That is a great score for Nevin.

:22:24.:22:29.

Now tactics will change from the Kazakh, he may come on his front

:22:29.:22:33.

foot more. That may suit Nevin. He has to stay nice and tight. But to

:22:33.:22:38.

be three points up, you don't see that very often in this tournament

:22:38.:22:48.
:22:48.:23:08.

so far, so they will be really advantage at the start of this

:23:08.:23:13.

second round, in favour of the man in red, the Irishman John Joe Nevin.

:23:13.:23:21.

Seeded number five, world rated number four in the most recent

:23:21.:23:24.

rankings. Certainly because of that, would have been favourite for this

:23:24.:23:27.

contest, but the man he is up against has been round the block a

:23:27.:23:31.

time or two and he knows he's will have to put the foot on the gas and

:23:31.:23:36.

force the pace. That means will come forward and Nevin, he is a

:23:36.:23:41.

good counter puncture, that might suit him. Great right hand by the

:23:41.:23:47.

Irishman. It will suit him more, what he has to do is keep, just

:23:47.:23:52.

that is good. I was going to say kept the left hooks go, he has to

:23:52.:23:56.

keep his nerve. It will be a test of character. Hold his nerve, bring

:23:56.:24:00.

him on to the shots. The Kazakh is going to come forward, which he is

:24:00.:24:08.

doing. He is confident. He should walk on to the punches. They have

:24:08.:24:11.

anticipated and Nevin is moving away and getting that right hand

:24:11.:24:15.

across into the middle. This is good work by the Irishman, lovely

:24:15.:24:21.

change of direction. He is boxing especially Nevin at the moment.

:24:21.:24:26.

key to his timing, he is starting to counter attack and as his

:24:26.:24:31.

opponent is coming forward Nevin is starting to beat him to the punch.

:24:31.:24:35.

A good tactic. The, I don't agree with that, Nevin is boxing on the

:24:35.:24:38.

back foot and the referee says you have to come forward, I don't agree.

:24:38.:24:43.

I think he is boxing the perfect fight, the Irishman. If you go

:24:43.:24:46.

beyond a certain period of time without trying to throw a punch the

:24:46.:24:51.

referee can have a word with you, for passivety. I didn't think he

:24:51.:24:56.

was going to be passive. That wasn't passive. That was on the

:24:56.:24:59.

squashed nose of the Kazakh. Coming up to the end of two minute, the

:24:59.:25:04.

second round, if anything, I reconNevin has extended this lead.

:25:04.:25:09.

He has boxed cleverly, single qal - - quality shots the Jungs can't

:25:09.:25:13.

miss. Five with a key pad with red and blue button, if they press

:25:13.:25:18.

three within a minute, or a second I should say, sometimes we think it

:25:18.:25:23.

looks like a minute! Press the button and the score is reported.

:25:23.:25:33.
:25:33.:25:35.

No running score up the top left hand corner any more. At the moment,

:25:35.:25:39.

the hand that will be raised and the name that will be read out is

:25:39.:25:44.

that of John Joe Nevin from Ireland. He has outworked his opponent in

:25:44.:25:49.

this second round. He has turned the tables. Normally this Kazakh

:25:49.:25:53.

boxer aims to frustrate the opponents what is happening is

:25:53.:25:58.

Nevin is doing that, he is bringing him on to shots. The Kazakh cannot

:25:59.:26:03.

close the gap down and he is walking on to punches. Right hand

:26:03.:26:08.

is crucial and the timing with that punch almost also. But the Kazakh

:26:08.:26:13.

has to get Klose to Nevin but the Irishman is not letting him do that.

:26:13.:26:23.
:26:23.:26:34.

referee. 10-5 to Ireland with three minutes to go. 5-2, 5-3. We thought

:26:34.:26:38.

the second round was more in favour than Nevin's favour but he is five

:26:39.:26:43.

points up and surely he is not going to lose this one. Good shot

:26:43.:26:50.

by the Kazakh but a great shot to the body be the Irishman. He is box

:26:50.:26:54.

especially, brings him on the a short right upper cut. Beat on to

:26:54.:27:00.

the punch. That was a typical counter attack. Nevin quickened the

:27:00.:27:04.

feet up and beat him to the punch. There is that right hand again

:27:04.:27:09.

there. Similar tactic, his timing is perfect up to now, Nevin.

:27:09.:27:19.
:27:19.:27:21.

Difficult to pull that back for the attention to the coaches in the

:27:22.:27:31.
:27:32.:27:33.

corner. Four years ago in Beijing, the man in red representing Ireland

:27:33.:27:39.

here in London 2012. He is under three minutes away from going one

:27:39.:27:45.

better. Got here because the, got to the semifinals of the World

:27:45.:27:50.

Championships last year, and went out very very narrowly to England's

:27:50.:27:56.

Luke Campbell. It was 12-12. Very close round and as it turned out

:27:56.:28:02.

Campbell through a greater volume of punches. --. Threw. Nevin has to

:28:02.:28:05.

be content with a second world bronze. Under pressure but he is a

:28:05.:28:09.

good man at finding distance when he has to find that reverse gear.

:28:09.:28:16.

He has turned into the outout-and- out counter puncher. He is bringing

:28:16.:28:20.

his opponent on to the shots. It is important he stays concentrated and

:28:20.:28:23.

his Rigg ring position is so important. He doesn't need to be on

:28:23.:28:29.

the rope, if he is, that will allow the Kazakh to land come pi basing

:28:29.:28:34.

mun -- punches. Got stay centre, keep calm, keep a cool head and

:28:34.:28:44.
:28:44.:28:45.

keep bringing him on the that right hand. Good boxing. The stkpwhrvings

:28:45.:28:48.

Again he gets on with the right hand. The referee has been harsh on

:28:48.:28:52.

Nevin, he is getting out of the way and the referee has been

:28:52.:28:55.

interpreting that as a lack of willingness to box, but that is not

:28:55.:29:01.

the case, he has been clever. the one who is winning the contest,

:29:01.:29:04.

so I haven't agreed with the referee when he has stopped him

:29:04.:29:10.

from moving back. I know you can't run away, but you certainly, he

:29:10.:29:13.

certainly has been landing the better shot. Look at that. He is

:29:13.:29:18.

moving away and then sneaks the shot there. The Kazakh was not

:29:18.:29:22.

aware of that. It is very good boxing on the back foot from this

:29:22.:29:31.

Irishman. Just about a minute remaining, can the Kazakh, he has

:29:31.:29:39.

been outworked and outpunched and outthought by the Irishman, the man.

:29:39.:29:43.

They will be devastated the Kazakhs because they really rate this fella.

:29:43.:29:49.

I have seen him train and spar many times, this Kazakh, and he is very

:29:49.:29:56.

good indeed. But, Ireland's Nevin here has his number. Less than a

:29:56.:30:01.

minute. Oh. Lovely switch of direction by nevirpbgs just threw

:30:01.:30:05.

out that right hand and flicked in a left. He has been frustrating

:30:05.:30:10.

since about the start of the second round, he has been frustrating the

:30:10.:30:15.

Kazakh all the way through. I think he was hurt with a shot there.

:30:15.:30:25.
:30:25.:30:39.

There was no need to stand as long combinations off. Nevin got in with

:30:39.:30:49.
:30:49.:30:58.

a good right hand. Abutalipov should have been able to step back

:30:58.:31:08.
:31:08.:31:16.

but he hasn't done it. Just a few seconds to go. Nevin hanging on.

:31:16.:31:23.

The referee said no to that one. An odd decision.

:31:23.:31:31.

And look at that, he knows he has won it. That is a tremendous

:31:31.:31:40.

performance from Nevin. Abutalipov would have been favourite to win

:31:40.:31:50.
:31:50.:31:52.

this. He brought him on to the shops. He was caught at time of 2

:31:52.:32:01.

in that last round. But he has box like a veteran. He frustrated his

:32:01.:32:10.

opponent, a tremendous display. The movement from the waist and was

:32:10.:32:20.
:32:20.:32:26.

superb. There is that a sharp jab. Well here we go. The winner by a

:32:26.:32:36.
:32:36.:32:37.

score of 15 points to 10 is the red corner, representing Ireland.

:32:37.:32:47.
:32:47.:32:50.

John Joe Nevin There he has won it comfortably against a Bury good

:32:50.:32:57.

comfortably against a Bury good opponent. -- very good.

:32:57.:33:03.

What a fantastic performance. He only made it through to this stage

:33:03.:33:08.

in Beijing before being knocked out. He is getting closer to a medal for

:33:08.:33:15.

it Ireland. In just about half-an- hour we have the men's time trial.

:33:15.:33:23.

But before that time for some canoe slalom. Richard Hounslow could have

:33:23.:33:29.

been working at these Games as a security guard as part of the

:33:29.:33:33.

British military. He had applied to join the armed forces but the last

:33:33.:33:40.

change of mind saw him become a change of mind saw him become a

:33:40.:33:50.
:33:50.:34:02.

He and David Florence will be riding in a the C2 final later in

:34:03.:34:12.
:34:13.:34:23.

the week. He really has been coming on strong. His best run came on the

:34:23.:34:31.

second run in the heats. That was good enough for 11th place. Now he

:34:31.:34:41.
:34:41.:34:41.

is aiming to make the final for the first time. A little bit wide in

:34:41.:34:51.
:34:51.:34:54.

the spin gate. He pushes the boat back out towards Gate 14. Richard

:34:54.:35:00.

Hounslow being roared on by this massive crowd. He knows the course

:35:00.:35:06.

quite well. He has not experienced this actual course before but he

:35:06.:35:16.
:35:16.:35:16.

knows the way the water reactor. That was a mile -- a remarkable run

:35:16.:35:24.

it earlier. He has to maintain his concentration. He has to pick up

:35:24.:35:33.

the speed on this last section and give nothing away.

:35:33.:35:43.
:35:43.:35:44.

Push hard all the way to the finish. The crowd is enough to push him all

:35:44.:35:54.
:35:54.:35:59.

the way to the down in fourth place. It looks as if he was questioning

:35:59.:36:09.
:36:09.:36:13.

something there. I am not quite sure I saw the two second penalty

:36:13.:36:17.

sure I saw the two second penalty either.

:36:17.:36:24.

Such a difficult looking sport. You could see the confusion on his face.

:36:24.:36:28.

Not agreeing with what the judges saw. But that left him sitting in

:36:28.:36:34.

10th position with two to go. Clinging on to a chance to make it

:36:34.:36:39.

Clinging on to a chance to make it into the final.

:36:39.:36:44.

There will be his own determination in the Spanish team to try to make

:36:44.:36:54.
:36:54.:36:58.

amends and bring a muddle home. Hernanz's job now to make it

:36:58.:37:08.
:37:08.:37:14.

through to the final. At the moment he is going well. No penalties so

:37:14.:37:19.

far for at the Spaniard. He is looking lively but just dropped a

:37:19.:37:28.

little bit on gate number nine. He wants to jump over at the little

:37:28.:37:38.
:37:38.:37:48.

stopper on the way. He is back out into the flow. Just got down to 13.

:37:48.:37:57.

He is looking stronger and technically very good at the moment.

:37:57.:38:06.

This is a very good performance from the Spaniard.

:38:06.:38:16.
:38:16.:38:18.

He just rides across and does not get stuck in the stopper. This is

:38:18.:38:23.

bad news for British supporters because it will mean the

:38:23.:38:28.

elimination of Richard Hounslow. He flies through the finish but lost

:38:28.:38:34.

some time in the last couple of gates.

:38:34.:38:40.

I wonder if he was just using it off a little so he can't really

:38:40.:38:50.
:38:50.:39:07.

attack it in the final. -- he can. It was a well executed run. Kept

:39:07.:39:14.

himself as tight to the poles as he could. Just making sure it kept

:39:14.:39:21.

running, not taking too big a hit. We should Hounslow will feel

:39:21.:39:31.
:39:31.:39:54.

disappointment I am sure. -- the third round. What will the

:39:54.:40:01.

different Configuration mean this time to the German?

:40:01.:40:07.

So far, so good. He is putting in at a strong

:40:07.:40:17.
:40:17.:40:26.

performance. A little bit of lost time there are around 89.

:40:26.:40:36.
:40:36.:40:44.

-- gate nine. Aigner's concentration is A1 at the moment.

:40:44.:40:54.
:40:54.:40:58.

He is totally alert. This is a similar situation to the he the

:40:58.:41:05.

other day. A modest start but blasting the rest of the course.

:41:05.:41:14.

Does he want to finish as number one? This is a superb performance

:41:14.:41:24.
:41:24.:41:29.

from the German. He will be outside the time set by Kauzer. You have to

:41:29.:41:39.
:41:39.:41:46.

question his commitment in the last question his commitment in the last

:41:46.:41:55.

four or five gates. Richard, you did not make it. Just

:41:55.:42:01.

sum up how you're feeling? Very disappointed. I did not even

:42:01.:42:06.

realise I had hit the gate but even without that her loyalty I would

:42:06.:42:14.

not have got through. It feels like an opportunity missed. I have not

:42:14.:42:18.

put down at the performance that I know I can. Looking back at the

:42:18.:42:28.
:42:28.:42:29.

results, it was not difficult to make the finals. I am just gutted.

:42:29.:42:34.

Genuinely heartbreaking to have to speak to you in the circumstances.

:42:34.:42:39.

It was the same width David Florence yesterday. Any sense of

:42:39.:42:43.

the pressure of the home crowd, it has been a pressure cooker and

:42:43.:42:49.

perhaps too much? It is difficult to say. It is hard to put your

:42:49.:42:54.

finger on it. The nature of the sport is unpredictable. The top

:42:54.:43:01.

guys put it in time and time again. When you are on the start blocks

:43:02.:43:06.

and you hear the crowd cheering it is pretty intense. But I was

:43:06.:43:16.
:43:16.:43:23.

enjoying it. Making the finals, it was there for me but anything can

:43:24.:43:30.

happen at once you reach the finals. You have the chance to redeem

:43:30.:43:37.

yourself tomorrow. Definitely. You do not want to be relying on

:43:37.:43:41.

another category. This whole doubling up thing that day that and

:43:42.:43:46.

I do, it is great that if you do not do well in once you can do well

:43:46.:43:52.

in the other but still it is hard to come away from the competition

:43:52.:44:01.

feeling fully satisfied. It is something that very few people have

:44:01.:44:05.

done. David and I have put everything into it in the past four

:44:05.:44:15.
:44:15.:44:18.

years. Like you say, we still have the C2. Jonathan Edwards is still

:44:18.:44:26.

there. I would not like to say you are a bad luck charm! It has been

:44:26.:44:32.

horrible. As said it today that yesterday and to Richard today,

:44:32.:44:36.

this is where they have trained and to see their hopes and dreams

:44:36.:44:40.

shattered in front of their eyes and then to speak to them and see

:44:40.:44:45.

that look in their eyes of just how disappointed they are, without any

:44:45.:44:51.

answers to where it went wrong, it has been horrible. So where has it

:44:51.:44:59.

gone wrong? Was that the pressure from the crowd? The whole home

:45:00.:45:09.

advantage for home disadvantage is an interesting debate. It is

:45:09.:45:12.

interesting that the venues where you would expect to have a home

:45:12.:45:17.

advantage, here at the Lee Valley and white water centre and also

:45:17.:45:21.

down in Weymouth where Ben Ainslie is struggling, you would think it

:45:21.:45:24.

would give the British competitors an advantage but it seems to have

:45:25.:45:29.

almost gone the other way. I think it is that expectation. And that

:45:29.:45:37.

whole other dynamic of funding. Everything that has gone in to make

:45:37.:45:41.

these Attlee's success what may also play on their mind. --

:45:41.:45:50.

Training these guys and guilting this place worthy for a World

:45:50.:45:55.

Championship, which is what it will hope host, and I guess that does

:45:55.:45:58.

play on their minds? It must. The important thing to mention about

:45:58.:46:02.

the money spent here, I think �13 million is it will be a legacy

:46:02.:46:06.

venue and regardless, I guess or not of the success of the paddlers

:46:06.:46:10.

here, this will continue and do very very well indeed. Nonetheless,

:46:10.:46:15.

this idea of creating a kind of participation legacy from the game,

:46:15.:46:20.

this will sit heavily on the shoulders of the pad lefrs,

:46:20.:46:24.

obviously their funding for the following year, going to Rio, rests

:46:24.:46:29.

on the performances here, so there is lots of different factors, it is

:46:29.:46:33.

not just the hopes and dreams of individual involved. Having spoke

:46:33.:46:36.

to David and Richard, are you confident that tomorrow n the C2

:46:36.:46:41.

you won't make it a hat-trick of negative interviews? I wouldn't say

:46:41.:46:46.

I was hugely confident. I don't think either of them have responded

:46:46.:46:50.

brilliantly to the pressure. On a positive note Lizzie Neave

:46:50.:46:53.

qualified second a couple of days ago, and I think the opposite thing

:46:53.:46:57.

happened for her, I think she, she improved her performance level. She

:46:57.:47:01.

rose to the occasion, so high hopes for her. Fingers crossed for her

:47:02.:47:05.

and the men. Thank you for joining us and if you would like to

:47:05.:47:10.

continue seeing the final in the men's K1 you can see that on the

:47:10.:47:15.

red button. That goes about 3.05. There is plenty of sport happening

:47:15.:47:20.

today. On BBC Three right now you can see live table tennis. China so

:47:20.:47:25.

dominant in this sport, over the years. You can press the red button

:47:25.:47:29.

for different sporting venues, and sports as well. Last night wasn't

:47:29.:47:32.

it fantastic. Great Britain's women up against Brazil. Brazil of course

:47:32.:47:36.

have never won a gold at the Olympic Games. Here they are taking

:47:36.:47:40.

on New Zealand. They the are at St James's Park at the moment. You can

:47:40.:47:47.

press the red button, and at Wembley it has been difficult, for

:47:47.:47:50.

the badminton, plenty of disqualifications after that

:47:50.:47:54.

controversy. A difficult 24-hours for the sport, all four pairs

:47:54.:47:58.

disqal past couple of hours who were involved in the controversial

:47:58.:48:02.

attempt to lose the match yesterday. You can see China and Korea taking

:48:02.:48:07.

each other on. One all and four all so it is looking exciting. At the

:48:07.:48:10.

start of the show we saw them cross the line but in is just how

:48:10.:48:14.

dominant a display the British women delivered earlier in the

:48:14.:48:24.
:48:24.:48:25.

women's pair. The commentary comes a remarkable story is now under way.

:48:25.:48:29.

Seven minutes away from Olympic history. We have Great Britain's

:48:29.:48:35.

Helen Glover, Stan in lane three, alongside them -- Heather Stanning,

:48:35.:48:41.

Australia, Kate Hornsey. They are in five. Already now, Great Britain

:48:41.:48:45.

have jumped out of the starting gate, Romania in one, Romania are

:48:45.:48:52.

the defending Olympic champions, we have five time Olympic champion in

:48:52.:48:57.

the bow seat. Great Britain, they mean business. It is game on.

:48:57.:49:01.

Germans have gone out fast as well. Closest to us in lane six. They

:49:01.:49:05.

have the early lead but I don't expect them to hold that. Look out,

:49:05.:49:10.

they are already stretching out, Great Britain, looking fine. They

:49:10.:49:14.

have settling into a rhythm. Middle of the race rhythm. Quick look

:49:14.:49:17.

across there and already they have moved out in front. They have the

:49:17.:49:22.

Olympic, twice Olympic champions from Romania up in lane one, who

:49:22.:49:26.

are now back in fourth place. But Great Britain doing what they have

:49:26.:49:29.

done for the last two years, just looking fantastic, what they have

:49:29.:49:33.

done, look at that, already a length. What they do so well and

:49:33.:49:37.

what they have learned in the last winter was to be flexible. To be

:49:37.:49:40.

able to respond to the attack that comes at the end and which caught

:49:40.:49:43.

them out last year at the World Championships, when New Zealand

:49:43.:49:48.

attacked them at the end. But in is fantastic. Look at them. -- but

:49:48.:49:53.

this is fantastic. An exceptional start from Helen Glover and Heather

:49:53.:49:59.

Stanning. Helen Glover from Minerva Bath rowing club. They are storming

:49:59.:50:07.

away in the first quarter, it is absolutely wonderful to see. So 500,

:50:07.:50:11.

the crowd down here have gone mad. They are now clear, there is clear

:50:11.:50:15.

water on Great Britain as they head towards the record book, but right

:50:15.:50:19.

now they will be, that will all be irrelevant to them. It is about

:50:20.:50:25.

dictating and executing their plan. We thought it was important to show

:50:25.:50:30.

you the way that the women started their race, incredibly dominant.

:50:30.:50:35.

And the pattern continued. A length clear by 500 metres but being

:50:35.:50:38.

chased by Australia and New Zealand. However the pace from the British

:50:38.:50:46.

woman was relentless. Being spurred on by the crowd. Heather and Helen

:50:46.:50:50.

entered the final 250 metre, the Grandstand erupted. At one point it

:50:50.:50:55.

looked like they were trying to muster a smile, as was predictable

:50:55.:51:01.

by this point, the gold was theirs. Look at the emotion. Let us flare

:51:01.:51:04.

the first gold medallists after they finally recovered, and managed

:51:04.:51:10.

they finally recovered, and managed to get out of the boat.. Helen,

:51:10.:51:15.

Heather, well done. Thank you. Fantastic performance. You know...

:51:15.:51:19.

I don't need to ask you any questions. Tell us, tell us what is

:51:19.:51:23.

happening in that body of yours at the moment? I don't know. It wants

:51:23.:51:29.

to go into shut down but it can't. It is too excited. I am shattered

:51:29.:51:33.

and ecstatic at the same time. I want to collapse but I am so

:51:33.:51:37.

overjoyed. I want to jump round. I don't know. Probably talking

:51:37.:51:41.

rubbish. Matthew and Steve are watching on the screen, and you

:51:41.:51:47.

smiled, with 250 to go. They were saying "Don't smile, you haven't

:51:47.:51:52.

won it yet.". That is probably a grimace. I remember thinking never

:51:52.:51:56.

think we have got this. Then we got through the orange buoys and I

:51:56.:52:01.

thought we have got this. A serious rowing question to start with, you

:52:01.:52:05.

decided if we get out early nobody is going to catch us, that is what

:52:05.:52:09.

you did. Yes we could see from the race we have done this season, we

:52:09.:52:12.

got ahead and pushed on the margin and that is what we wanted to do.

:52:12.:52:17.

We didn't want to give anything back. We wanted to keep the same

:52:17.:52:23.

margin in all the World Cup up to now. Had Helen keep going in my ear,

:52:23.:52:27.

she was going go on, give us more. I can see them, they are behind us.

:52:27.:52:31.

We have a message from you from some of your colleagues from

:52:31.:52:34.

Afghanistan. If you put the head phones on. Here is what they have

:52:34.:52:44.
:52:44.:52:50.

Brilliant. Brief and to the point. What is your message to them?

:52:50.:52:54.

Thanks very much guys, for all the support. I know you a long way away,

:52:54.:52:58.

but you have been supporting me and it means so much. I am proud to be

:52:58.:53:02.

associated with you, and well done keep doing what you are doing and I

:53:02.:53:06.

will see you soon. Four years ago you watched the agents in Beijing,

:53:06.:53:09.

you could never imagine four years on you would be in this position,

:53:09.:53:14.

who knows how many people are watching you who have never rowed

:53:14.:53:18.

and thinking that could be me in Rio. If I can do it take the chance,

:53:18.:53:23.

not just in rowing, if you work hard and try your best, anyone can

:53:23.:53:28.

do anything. Enjoy the anthem. will do. Congratulations to our

:53:28.:53:31.

first gold medallist in rowing and our first medallists here at London

:53:31.:53:37.

2012. Wasn't that wonderfulful what you didn't hear but a lovely

:53:37.:53:40.

message from her colleagues who are working away in the armed forces,

:53:40.:53:45.

she has take an career break to purr pursue her rogue, she is now

:53:45.:53:50.

an Olympic gold medallist, wasn't it lovely seeing Helen's reaction,

:53:50.:53:56.

he kept rile -- realising that she really was an Olympic champion.

:53:56.:53:59.

Remarkable reactions, then you heard John say enjoy the National

:53:59.:54:04.

:54:31.:54:41.
:54:41.:54:54.

30,000 people here at Dorronsoro joining in with the National Anthem.

:54:54.:55:02.

:55:10.:55:13.

see that flag. How great to hear that anthem. This is what it means

:55:14.:55:23.
:55:24.:55:26.

for the medal table. China and the It puts us 14th at the moment.

There you go. The moment it happened. The medals going round

:55:31.:55:35.

the neck, the smiles on the faces and I wouldn't be surprised if the

:55:35.:55:38.

tears continue to flow. There are a few celebrations down at Eton

:55:38.:55:41.

Dorney for the next little while. Now, to the moment that we have

:55:41.:55:46.

been waiting for this afternoon. A chance for Bradley Wiggins to

:55:46.:55:51.

achieve more than just an Olympic medal. Success would see him not

:55:51.:55:56.

only top off the greatest sporting year of his life he would become

:55:56.:56:02.

Great Britain's most decorated athlete.. Excuse me I will speak in

:56:02.:56:05.

English for a bit. We are just going to draw the raffle numbers

:56:05.:56:12.

now! I didn't even have a drink inside me with when I did that.

:56:12.:56:18.

is so formal that stuff, you have the President of France with me. It

:56:18.:56:22.

wasn't about that, really, that is why I turned to the fan, all those

:56:22.:56:25.

people had come and it is about them. They are the ones that

:56:25.:56:30.

support you. I would love to have bought them all a drink. It was

:56:30.:56:35.

brilliant. That is what it is about. So, yeah, maybe as disrespectful as

:56:35.:56:39.

it was to the sponsors and all the prawn sandwiches in front of me, I

:56:39.:56:47.

felt it was much more appropriate to give time to them. Country has

:56:47.:56:54.

gone Wigtastic, people are sporting sideburns, mod T-shirt, riding

:56:54.:56:59.

Vespas. It is good it has that effect. A bit strange for me, but,

:56:59.:57:06.

you know, I do it to be individual, and so, but it is good. The biggest

:57:06.:57:11.

name in cycling, you are the winner of the Tour de France? Am I

:57:11.:57:16.

officially bigger than Cav now? I haven't done a Head and Shoulders

:57:16.:57:21.

ad though. Just the scale of the win, and the reaction in this

:57:21.:57:25.

country, do you pinch yourself? was a bit overwhelming. I was used

:57:25.:57:30.

to seeing that happen to Open other people, Chris, Chris Hoy, when he

:57:30.:57:33.

came back from Beijing. I don't think any of us appreciate what

:57:33.:57:39.

cycling is going through at the moment. You so concentrate on

:57:39.:57:42.

performance, we are down-to-earth by the nature of the sport. We

:57:42.:57:46.

don't fully appreciate what it is doing for the profile of the sport.

:57:46.:57:50.

To win the Tour de France takes an incredible effort. What sacrifices

:57:50.:57:56.

do you have to make to get where you are? A lot. I mean, apart from

:57:56.:57:59.

the training, physical side that everyone does, six tweefbs year I

:57:59.:58:04.

have to live on a mountain in Tenerife, miss children's birthday,

:58:04.:58:07.

kids break up for the Easter holidays and you are leaving that

:58:07.:58:11.

day and they don't know where you are for two week, sleep in the

:58:11.:58:15.

spare bedroom in a tent for weeks on end. Having a family and being a

:58:15.:58:19.

father and husband, and all that isn't conducive to trying to win

:58:19.:58:24.

the Tour de France. The two just don't go together, but, you know,

:58:25.:58:31.

if you have a supportive family like I have you can do. I don't

:58:31.:58:39.

know how long I can do it for. I couldn't do six like Lance did.

:58:39.:58:44.

This is your fourth Olympic, you have won six medals. You are

:58:44.:58:50.

steeped in Olympic history, what do they mean "no" you? It is like

:58:50.:58:54.

something you come back to, you don't miss them, so to come back

:58:54.:58:59.

here, same people, same staff, you know and it is good that, every

:58:59.:59:03.

four years I get a bit older and more successful, so from this 19-

:59:03.:59:07.

year-old lad in Sydney, right through, you haven't changed a bit.

:59:08.:59:12.

I am looking forward to going out there and trying to win my fourth

:59:12.:59:18.

gold in the time trials, so it is going to be amazing. Someone

:59:18.:59:21.

mentioned to me the other day, which I didn't give a thought to, I

:59:21.:59:26.

am unbeaten in time trials this year, soy thought, well, I never

:59:26.:59:32.

give it a thought, you know, so that is quite nice statistic to

:59:32.:59:36.

have going into the Olympic time trial. Each one brings the best

:59:36.:59:42.

adds you have to be at your best, I think I'm at the best at the moment.

:59:42.:59:47.

Well I just won the Tour so I must be. Have a safe journey home and

:59:47.:59:52.

don't get too drunk. He might do that tonight if he manages to pick

:59:52.:59:57.

up the gold today. What a year, today is his big moment in the

:59:57.:00:01.

Olympic game, come on Britain. A. Not the only one that should be

:00:01.:00:05.

wearing these, my only piece of advice, don't use super glue. He

:00:05.:00:10.

was thank to the team's evident to achieve his dreams and win that

:00:10.:00:14.

yellow jersey three weeks' ago, despite his own best efforts as

:00:14.:00:18.

part of the team he waipblz to launch Mark Cavendish to gold.

:00:18.:00:28.

Today the man with the sideburn, it It is across this the 44 kilometre

course that Bradley Wiggins will look to push him self quicker than

:00:40.:00:47.

anyone else. It starts off at Hampton Court and looks back

:00:47.:00:53.

towards Kingston. It is fast, flat and Bradley Wiggins is unbeaten in

:00:54.:01:03.

this discipline in the past year. He has demolished all challengers.

:01:03.:01:12.

Chris Froome is less suited to this course. But he is still in with the

:01:12.:01:19.

chance of a muddle. Fabien Cancellara of Switzerland and Tony

:01:19.:01:27.

Martin of Germany the other chances of medal places. But they are both

:01:27.:01:32.

carrying injuries. Bradley Wiggins, the man with the sideburns, have

:01:32.:01:38.

now it is his chance to manage to secure a gold medal on that course.

:01:38.:01:48.

Bradley Wiggins's big moment. Edvald Boason-Hagen of Norway

stance. And still all the big favourites to come. From the early

:02:07.:02:17.
:02:17.:02:22.

starters, the fastest time is the Brazilian rider. In fact that has

:02:22.:02:32.
:02:32.:02:52.

just been beaten by the Japanese Norwegian now, Edvald Boason-Hagen.

:02:52.:03:02.
:03:02.:03:10.

Such a talented rider. He supported Bradley Wiggins this year in the

:03:10.:03:20.
:03:20.:03:45.

rider from Lithuania. The quickest time we have had at the first stage

:03:45.:03:55.
:03:55.:04:20.

Jack Bauer, who may just have settled down after that near miss

:04:20.:04:30.
:04:30.:04:37.

with the fence! This is Denis Menchov. He has always been there

:04:37.:04:44.

for at thereabouts. He slowly slipped backwards this year at the

:04:44.:04:54.
:04:54.:04:54.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 95 seconds

:04:54.:06:30.

year, finishing second overall in the Paris to Nice.

:06:30.:06:36.

That is the face of a man who is here to suffer. Very focused on the

:06:36.:06:46.
:06:46.:06:57.

into a southerly direction. Most of this course is well sheltered and

:06:57.:07:07.

should not cause too much of a problem for them.

:07:07.:07:12.

The bend in the first 300 metres of the race is probably the most

:07:12.:07:22.
:07:22.:07:30.

difficult. A good start by the Dane, going to

:07:30.:07:40.
:07:40.:08:09.

the top of the leader board. all-rounders. There is a lot of

:08:09.:08:18.

road there and I'm surprised that they are not using it all.

:08:18.:08:22.

The conditions now are improving. There is a winter getting a but it

:08:22.:08:32.
:08:32.:08:34.

is a warm and the sun is out. Chris Froome just warming up. He was

:08:34.:08:41.

recently second in the Tour de France. And had a very good time

:08:41.:08:51.
:08:51.:08:51.

trial as well. Gustave Larsson had been one of these strange helmets.

:08:51.:08:58.

He got the silver medal in the time-trials in Beijing. So he is

:08:58.:09:08.
:09:08.:09:08.

very good against the clock. I'm struggling to see what the

:09:08.:09:18.
:09:18.:09:57.

bridge through that corridor of faces. He has been a bit quiet. He

:09:57.:10:05.

had a superb performance in China but not much sense.

:10:05.:10:15.
:10:15.:10:23.

He won the national championships. And a stage back in Paris-Nice.

:10:23.:10:33.
:10:33.:10:33.

Michael Rogers, a really good time trial there. 32 years of age. From

:10:33.:10:43.
:10:43.:10:51.

Australia. He completed the Tour de France in the 23rd place. He was a

:10:51.:10:57.

time-trial specialist but then he started to climb mountains. He has

:10:57.:11:02.

got fantastic form. He has been very much in support of his team

:11:02.:11:07.

for the past month so it will be interesting to see what he can do

:11:07.:11:13.

now he is off the leash in a discipline that he knows well. He

:11:13.:11:18.

is in great shape but just has not had a chance yet of this year to

:11:18.:11:28.
:11:28.:11:36.

use it for himself. He is one of several racing brothers. This is

:11:36.:11:41.

going to be his last Olympic Games so he will be keen to make the most

:11:41.:11:48.

of that opportunity. He is the youngest of three brothers. His

:11:48.:11:52.

older brother represented the Australia many times as well. So he

:11:52.:12:02.
:12:02.:12:14.

would like to go out on a high is possible. Bak has still posted the

:12:14.:12:24.
:12:24.:12:40.

quickest time. Grabsch, 37 years of age. Second in their national

:12:40.:12:50.
:12:50.:13:04.

Championship this year. No mean as quickly as you can on a normal

:13:04.:13:10.

road bike. He is an experienced man in his discipline. He knows there

:13:10.:13:20.
:13:20.:13:21.

is 50 minutes of racing ahead. Energy is expensive.

:13:21.:13:31.
:13:31.:13:34.

Eight more competitors to take the start. Sylvain Chavanel is the next

:13:34.:13:44.
:13:44.:13:52.

of those. Sylvain Chavanel posted some

:13:52.:13:58.

fantastic time trials this year. Third in the opening prologue of

:13:58.:14:06.

the Tour de France. 5th in the final time-trial. So you would

:14:06.:14:13.

expect to see him in the top eight or the top five today. But he is

:14:13.:14:23.
:14:23.:14:38.

against some serious specialists. Brajkovic coming up now. He goes

:14:38.:14:48.
:14:48.:15:00.

ahead, slicing 2.56 seconds off from Great Britain. We first saw

:15:00.:15:10.
:15:10.:15:11.

him riding in the Commonwealth Games in Australia. He is a good

:15:11.:15:21.
:15:21.:15:26.

rider. Second last year in the Tour of Spain. I think he could win the

:15:26.:15:36.
:15:36.:15:41.

the professional teams in cycling can be signed for the first time

:15:41.:15:47.

today. So well -- there will be lots coming out on the news wires

:15:47.:15:57.
:15:57.:16:01.

tonight. His form is such that you cannot discount him. Here's the man,

:16:01.:16:05.

the man of the moment, Bradley Wiggins, the winner of the Tour de

:16:05.:16:10.

France, in the form of his life. He is poised to move into sporting

:16:10.:16:14.

immortality. If he wins a medal today, no matter what colour, he

:16:14.:16:18.

will have got more medals in the Olympic Games than at any other

:16:18.:16:25.

British competitor. But that will not be on his mind, it will be all

:16:25.:16:33.

about trying to win. We had a glimpse of the sports scientist who

:16:33.:16:43.
:16:43.:16:44.

has been instrumental with Team Sky and the success of Brad Wiggins.

:16:44.:16:54.

Next to go, the national champion of Italy. He used to be on the same

:16:54.:17:04.
:17:04.:17:17.

end of the contest. Five more to go after this. He beat Geraint Thomas

:17:17.:17:27.
:17:27.:17:28.

into second place in the Shearer did earlier this year. -- Giro

:17:28.:17:38.
:17:38.:17:49.

d'Italia. He will be happy with that time. Great ride by Gilbert.

:17:49.:17:59.
:17:59.:17:59.

Same time as Brajkovic. Now, a man in form, Sanchez, from Spain. He

:17:59.:18:08.

won a stage in the Tour de France, stage 14, and he got third in the

:18:08.:18:11.

final Time Trial in the Tour the France. I feel he has a possibility

:18:11.:18:18.

of a podium position. Yes, I think so, and so does he. Oh, he has had

:18:18.:18:23.

a problem, something has broken! He is looking down. He has just broken

:18:23.:18:32.

his chain! Can he get another bike? They are getting it off the roof.

:18:32.:18:36.

But starting your day by losing what will be 25 seconds. He has

:18:37.:18:43.

hurt his knee as well. He will get a lot of support from the crowd,

:18:43.:18:47.

but doing that at the start, for somebody who's potentially going to

:18:47.:18:53.

get a medal, what a devastating start. I reckon he lost between 20

:18:53.:19:01.

and 25 seconds, not to mention the effect on his morale. Well,

:19:01.:19:10.

desperately bad luck for Sanchez. You cannot believe it, can you?

:19:10.:19:14.

caught the team out as well, you do not expect mechanical failure

:19:14.:19:19.

within the first two metres of the race. We will keep an eye on that,

:19:19.:19:26.

see whether he is within 30 seconds of a muddle. Here's a man who we

:19:26.:19:31.

have been talking about as a possible dark horse today, 22-year-

:19:31.:19:35.

old Taylor Phinney. He is so talented. He rode on the track

:19:35.:19:42.

actually in Beijing. He earned prologue in Italy, but he has not

:19:42.:19:46.

raced since. He went back to Colorado to put the final

:19:46.:19:54.

preparations to his fall. He is a former world Time Trial champion.

:19:54.:19:59.

It comes from a great pedigree. His mother was the Olympic gold medal-

:19:59.:20:04.

winner in Los Angeles on the road. His father also has a great

:20:04.:20:11.

pedigree. He could be a dark horse. Yes, he has been out of sight for

:20:11.:20:17.

quite a few months, since Italy. We have not got much information about

:20:17.:20:21.

him since then, but we do know that he has been preparing specifically

:20:21.:20:25.

for this. He likes the flatter courses, as this man does not,

:20:25.:20:30.

Chris Froome. He would much prefer the mountains. But his form is such

:20:30.:20:36.

at the moment that he may be able to overcome that problem. He has

:20:36.:20:46.
:20:46.:20:46.

got one of the asymmetric bar chain rings, favoured by Bradley Wiggins.

:20:46.:20:55.

Now, the world champion, Tony Martin. A 27-year-old German. He

:20:55.:20:58.

had a crash on the first stage of the Tour de France, which

:20:58.:21:08.
:21:08.:21:09.

eventually forced him to retire. He will be wearing a brace on his arm

:21:10.:21:19.
:21:20.:21:22.

under his top there. You can never discount this talented German.

:21:22.:21:26.

CHRIS BOARDMAN: Having those problems in the Tour de France, and

:21:26.:21:30.

earlier in the year as well, we have got to put him down as unknown.

:21:30.:21:34.

The pedigree is there, the background is there, but we do not

:21:34.:21:38.

know what to expect. He certainly looks in good shape to me. In the

:21:38.:21:41.

Time Trial, if you have a wrist injury, most of your weight is

:21:42.:21:46.

taken on the elbow, so you can train quite effectively for this,

:21:46.:21:53.

and some riders have even done so with a broken collarbone, as

:21:53.:22:00.

demonstrated by Armstrong just a few hours ago.

:22:00.:22:04.

HUGH PORTER: now, we are waiting for Bradley Wiggins, the man of the

:22:04.:22:09.

moment, to come into the starting house. Here comes Castroviejo, from

:22:09.:22:19.
:22:19.:22:24.

Spain. His time at that point makes him the quickest, he has gone 20

:22:24.:22:29.

seconds faster than Brajkovic. Now, then, a face of concentration,

:22:30.:22:33.

Bradley Wiggins, the man who has just won the Tour de France. He is

:22:33.:22:38.

teeing himself up for a tilt at the gold medal here. As I said earlier,

:22:38.:22:42.

if he wins a medal of any colour, he will become the most decorated

:22:42.:22:47.

British Olympian of all time, with seven medals to his credit. Wiggins

:22:47.:22:52.

gets under way! Unbeaten in the Time Trial this year, that's not

:22:52.:22:58.

counting prologues, the short ones. But Bradley Wiggins is on his way.

:22:58.:23:04.

What an opportunity for him. London at heart, although he lives in the

:23:04.:23:09.

north-west now. But he considers this to be a once-in-a-lifetime

:23:09.:23:13.

opportunity. There is plenty of pressure for him to perform, both

:23:13.:23:16.

for himself, and for the thousands and thousands of people lining the

:23:16.:23:20.

route today. But if anybody can deal with pressure, it is Brad

:23:20.:23:25.

Wiggins. He certainly can. Second in the World Championships last

:23:25.:23:35.
:23:35.:23:48.

Chris Froome is settling down to the challenge ahead. It is a great

:23:48.:23:52.

course for those that can concentrate. It is a very internal

:23:52.:23:58.

race. We saw him just going through the checkpoint. I think I saw it

:23:58.:24:04.

flashing up as five seconds ahead. One man to go, and here he is,

:24:04.:24:10.

Fabien Cancellara, the defending champion. He is a sensational time-

:24:10.:24:17.

trialler. He won the Olympic title in Beijing, beating Larsson by 33

:24:17.:24:22.

seconds. There was some speculation about him not riding today. He has

:24:22.:24:27.

got heavy bruising on his shoulder having come off during the road

:24:27.:24:31.

race a few days ago. We will see whether it has affected him. But on

:24:31.:24:37.

his day, almost unbeatable. It is a fantastic course for him as well.

:24:37.:24:42.

He likes a flat course. No problem for him at all. It was very much

:24:42.:24:46.

out of character, that crash at the weekend, he simply miscalculated

:24:46.:24:50.

the corner, locked up his wheels, and went down hard into that

:24:50.:24:55.

barrier. But just like Tony Martin, he is an unknown today. You would

:24:55.:24:59.

say he would be one of the two favourites, but very much unknown,

:25:00.:25:04.

after that crash. Personally, I think if he is here, he will be one

:25:04.:25:07.

of the main contenders. He would not have started if he was not

:25:07.:25:15.

confident he could do it. There is Brad Wiggins, the man who has won

:25:15.:25:20.

three gold medals in a Olympic Games on the track. Two British

:25:20.:25:24.

riders who really performed magnificently in the recent Tour de

:25:24.:25:28.

France, finishing first and second in the end. Chris Froome, looking

:25:28.:25:34.

good, holding that nice, compact style. This is Tony Martin. It is

:25:34.:25:39.

all about these final six competitors.

:25:39.:25:43.

CHRIS BOARDMAN: These first checkpoints are going to be

:25:43.:25:50.

fascinating to see. Some of them might have gone off too quickly,

:25:50.:25:54.

especially the early riders, but these latter riders are all much

:25:54.:25:59.

more experienced. The first split will give us a very good idea of

:25:59.:26:09.
:26:09.:26:09.

who will be in contention for a medal. As we come back to Chris

:26:09.:26:15.

Froome, originally from Kenya, now, of course, part of the British set-

:26:15.:26:19.

up. It will be interesting to see whether he does consider a transfer

:26:19.:26:22.

between teams in the professional game, with that deadline for

:26:22.:26:28.

transfers being today, as we were saying. Coming up to the checkpoint

:26:28.:26:35.

here, Boasson Hagen, and he is 17 seconds shy of the time of the

:26:35.:26:41.

leader, Castroviejo. It is Chris Froome who leads at the first split,

:26:41.:26:47.

actually. He is six seconds ahead of Larsson at the moment. But now,

:26:48.:26:52.

we will start to get the times of Sanchez and Phinney, those will be

:26:52.:26:56.

the next interesting ones. We can just keep a look out here for the

:26:57.:27:03.

late starters, at the 7.3 kilometres point. We are very keen

:27:03.:27:09.

to see how evenly matched people like the man we are looking at now,

:27:09.:27:14.

Cancellara, Wiggins and Martin are. The early splits will I feel give

:27:14.:27:24.
:27:24.:27:34.

us an idea of the kind of ride after a week, but he pulled out

:27:34.:27:39.

because his wife gave birth to their second daughter. As the next

:27:39.:27:48.

finisher comes in, Lahsaini, from Morocco. He is one of the early

:27:48.:27:54.

starters, but that time of course is going to crumble. That's the

:27:54.:28:04.
:28:04.:28:06.

first rider in. So, Castroviejo has caught Hesjedal. That is a surprise.

:28:06.:28:10.

I thought Hesjedal would perform better than that at this Olympic

:28:10.:28:16.

Time Trial. Look at the crouching style of the Spaniard, really low

:28:16.:28:26.
:28:26.:28:33.

down, turning a very big gear as he waiting for his time split. Let me

:28:33.:28:38.

just tell you, Taylor Phinney has gone through one second faster than

:28:38.:28:43.

Chris Froome at 7.3 kilometres. So, the man we said could be a dark

:28:43.:28:49.

horse, Phinney, has not disappointed at this early stage.

:28:49.:28:57.

He is the fastest at 7.3 kilometres. That's a good ride by the man from

:28:57.:29:06.

Venezuela, coming in now. I think the winning time might be inside

:29:06.:29:15.

the 50 three-minute mark today. We're still looking at Chris Froome,

:29:15.:29:22.

but of course, behind him, we have got Sanchez. Sanchez will be out of

:29:22.:29:27.

it, because he had that disastrous start with the broken chain. We're

:29:27.:29:33.

waiting for the times now of Martin, Wiggins and Cancellara. Look at the

:29:33.:29:40.

crowd. What a fantastic experience to have, to ride on British roads

:29:40.:29:44.

with that many Union Jacks flying in front of you. It is quite

:29:44.:29:49.

fantastic. Time coming in for Tony Martin, the world champion, he has

:29:49.:29:57.

gone through 7.3 kilometres in 8.22, nine seconds faster than Phinney.

:29:58.:30:01.

And we have got Wiggins and Cancellara still to go through that

:30:01.:30:07.

first split. Martin, the world champion, my goodness me, he looks

:30:07.:30:17.
:30:17.:30:17.

good. It was a puncture in the opening prologue which stopped him

:30:17.:30:23.

contesting back, but apart from that, he was on a par with Fabian

:30:23.:30:30.

Cancellara. Martin is a prodigious talent, we saw that when he won the

:30:30.:30:35.

world title in Copenhagen last year. He came home with a brilliant

:30:35.:30:40.

victory, one minute 15 seconds faster than Wiggins. But he has had

:30:40.:30:44.

his problems, as I said, breaking that bone in the wrist, but for the

:30:44.:30:54.
:30:54.:31:05.

moment, for me, he is looking very and Cancellara. The latest time by

:31:05.:31:12.

the Venezuelan. Confirmed for you. No, it was 57.41. As go back to

:31:12.:31:22.
:31:22.:31:23.

Froome. Such a fantastic climber is Chris Froome, and future Tour de

:31:23.:31:30.

France winner, we think. Sweeping down here, Western Green Road. The

:31:30.:31:34.

smooth surface, he is happy with that. It has come through Bradley

:31:34.:31:39.

Wiggins at the 7.3 kilometre split as gone through five secondss off

:31:39.:31:45.

the pace of Tony Martin, so five seconds shy of the World Champions

:31:45.:31:51.

time. Only one more rider to come through that and that of course is

:31:51.:31:55.

Fabian Cancellara, it is early days they are early indication. I think

:31:55.:31:59.

Bradley Wiggins is going to be OK with that, he is very much in touch

:31:59.:32:02.

at seven kilometre, everybody is panning out the starting style.

:32:02.:32:08.

Depend whether they are starting to come out carefully and pace it over

:32:08.:32:11.

the distance, Wiggins has start ed too fast in Spain, he paid the

:32:11.:32:16.

price, he learned you have to be careful at the start, so we will

:32:16.:32:21.

get a better indication when they get to the 18 kilometre mark.

:32:21.:32:26.

are waiting for Cancellara's split time. So, this is Bradley Wiggins,

:32:26.:32:33.

nice compact style, a man of course, that can ride 4.15 for 4,000 metres

:32:33.:32:38.

in the individual pursuit. He was a member of that well drill yued nit

:32:38.:32:44.

that clinched the medal in Beijing, don't go too far over Bradley! We

:32:44.:32:50.

almost saw the American crash there. He is not taking any chances there

:32:50.:32:55.

at all. There is something of an ungainly style, a bit, well just a

:32:55.:32:59.

slight frame, struggles to get all the power down on to the road. As

:32:59.:33:02.

we switch back to Bradley Wiggins, doesn't look in any kind of

:33:02.:33:08.

difficulty at the moment, that smooth style, karktris --

:33:08.:33:13.

characteristic of Bradley Wiggins. Confirm the time at the first split

:33:13.:33:18.

of Cancellara, it is eight minutes 28 seconds which is one second

:33:18.:33:22.

slower than Wiggins but six seconds slower than Tony Martin of Germany.

:33:22.:33:26.

So the three big players are already dualling out there on the

:33:26.:33:33.

road and Phinney in touch on 8.31 and Froome is there on 8.32. As our

:33:33.:33:40.

next fin esh -- fin Iisher Beppu, an average speed of 47.4. We can

:33:40.:33:45.

see that creep up towards possibly surface the 50 kilometres an hour

:33:45.:33:49.

mark before we get to the end of this event. Look at Wiggins, he

:33:49.:33:53.

will be wear of what is going on throughout with his main opponent

:33:53.:33:59.

and the Tour de France winner really has enjoy add euphoric

:33:59.:34:05.

greeting into the start area. But those times in that first split,

:34:05.:34:10.

7.3 kilometres, very interesting. What a compact punchy style here of

:34:10.:34:15.

Castroviejo of Spain. He is having a great ride. As he takes a drink,

:34:15.:34:20.

he really has started the race incredibly fast. As we go back to

:34:20.:34:23.

Michael Rogers here, as he approached the checkpoint. We were

:34:23.:34:27.

unsure of what he was going to do, well, it is certainly respectable.

:34:27.:34:32.

At best here he will post the fastest time by far. He is going to

:34:32.:34:38.

go quicker than Castroviejo. So, the triple World Champion Rogers,

:34:38.:34:41.

faithful servant to Wiggins in the Tour de France, she going to go to

:34:41.:34:45.

the top of the leaderboard. Lots more big names still to come. But

:34:45.:34:50.

Rogers still looking good. Let us look at the split. It is 24.02.

:34:50.:34:55.

Takes 18 seconds off the time of Castroviejo. Technical first

:34:55.:35:04.

section is be lying of the average speeds. Very fast run in today.

:35:04.:35:07.

lean is Bradley Wiggins. He has lost a lot of weight which has

:35:07.:35:13.

enabled him to be able to climb the mountains well, and he has had

:35:13.:35:17.

bootcamps over there on the vom can nick mountain in Tenerife where he

:35:17.:35:22.

has been doing has training, continually powering away up that

:35:22.:35:27.

steep mountain. You get fairly lean in the month of July when you are

:35:27.:35:33.

using up thousands of calories. There is an aerodynamic component

:35:33.:35:37.

because your sill weth is reduced by a few millimetres all the way

:35:37.:35:42.

round, not to mention the weight as well, which is beneficial. Hampton

:35:42.:35:49.

Court roadway now. The next split time will be interesting. The next

:35:49.:35:56.

is Grabsch, a former World Champion, as the next finish coming in, this

:35:56.:36:01.

is Basayev. He is a minute slow of the leader at this stage, which is

:36:01.:36:08.

still Beppu, the Japanese rider, so Beppu still leading. It looks like

:36:08.:36:17.

the people who came in are the favourites, are delivering. That

:36:17.:36:20.

cans lar, Wiggins, Martin the people we thought would be in play.

:36:20.:36:26.

Here comes Grabsch, the 37-year-old German. 24.09 so the time of

:36:26.:36:31.

Michael Rogers is out of reach here. Let us see how far shy he is of the

:36:31.:36:36.

Australian at this point. There it s14 seconds fob Grabsch. Second at

:36:36.:36:40.

this point then. For the former World Champion from Germany. So

:36:40.:36:48.

Beppu still leading, 55.40. And second at 55.50 is Nazaret from

:36:48.:36:52.

Brazil. Third from Kazakhstan, his time will be, how long will it be

:36:52.:36:59.

up there, we will have to see. That is Basayev. This is Cancellara, he

:36:59.:37:03.

is rolling on that saddle. For wand on the peak as we confirm the

:37:03.:37:09.

position after 7.3 kilometres. Tight. Just under five seconds.

:37:09.:37:13.

Wiggins trails with Cancellara third, just under six. What a

:37:13.:37:18.

contest we have got here. It is going to go all the way, this one.

:37:18.:37:22.

Five seconds, everybody is still in touch. Taylor Phinney nine second,

:37:22.:37:26.

it is stretching out, a lot to give away on a flat course but still

:37:26.:37:29.

possible for him to nudge on the the podium from that distance away,

:37:29.:37:33.

from the top three. After that, well, I don't think they are going

:37:34.:37:38.

to be able to make up that distance unless somebody has an issue as we

:37:38.:37:43.

switch back to Michael Rogers. Looking good, isn't he, Michael

:37:43.:37:48.

Rogers, as I said earlier, came from a track background, and one

:37:48.:37:56.

medals at the Commonwealth games in 1998, but he was a member as well

:37:56.:38:00.

of the well drilled team pursuit squad of Australia. He has got some

:38:00.:38:05.

superb road wins to his credit, he won the tour of California, tour of

:38:05.:38:09.

Germany, he has been right up there, superb man to have has a domestic

:38:09.:38:13.

in the team. I think he has enjoyed the lesser responsibility, as we

:38:13.:38:19.

get our first shot coming up to the necks check with Froome. The man

:38:19.:38:25.

that started ahead of him, Chavanel was the man who started a minute-

:38:25.:38:29.

and-a-half ahead of Froome. Let us look at the split. Very very quick.

:38:29.:38:33.

It is going to go inside the time of Rogers. You can see the time

:38:34.:38:36.

confirmed. Here comes Froome. Let us have a look. He is on form,

:38:36.:38:40.

isn't he, this man. The runner up in the Tour de France, Chris Froome

:38:40.:38:46.

looking very very good indeed. Softly spoken, it be lies his

:38:46.:38:49.

athletic delivery on that bike. Is he going to be half a minute

:38:49.:38:55.

quicker? He is not going to be far off it. Here he comes, 24 seconds

:38:55.:39:01.

faster than Rogers. At the second point of 18 com ters. He is on a

:39:01.:39:06.

ride. That is a huge chunk of time so we can expect the main riders to

:39:06.:39:09.

come through, perhaps another kilometre an hour faster than that

:39:09.:39:13.

as we see the style of Froome, coming round this corner, he

:39:13.:39:16.

settled into this race now. This is the interesting checkpoint for me

:39:16.:39:20.

this is the one we are interest interested in. The first one you

:39:20.:39:25.

need to stay in touch but the 18 kilometre mark will define who it

:39:25.:39:31.

is who is vying for a podium place. Young Phinney, even if he doesn't

:39:31.:39:36.

medal today, he has a tremendous future ahead of him, has Phinney,

:39:36.:39:39.

and he looks good on the bike. has his work to do here, nine

:39:39.:39:44.

seconds down at that first check, it is quite a chunk on this flat

:39:44.:39:48.

course but he is only a couple of seconds away from getting on to the

:39:48.:39:52.

podium. Well, that is an interesting thing, I didn't think

:39:52.:39:55.

there was any descent on this course that warranted tucking down

:39:55.:40:00.

to make himself as small as possible. Is this Sanchez again?

:40:01.:40:05.

Looks like he has had more trouble? We were talking about him as being

:40:05.:40:10.

a possible contender. Yes, there he is delayed and stopped again. He

:40:10.:40:15.

has had a puncture. Is it a back wheel change It's a rear wheel

:40:15.:40:19.

change. I think the day over for him. What turbl luck. He has come

:40:19.:40:23.

with great form after that Tour de France. That is a disaster. It must

:40:23.:40:28.

be hard to keep the motorration to keep going. We had him flagged up a

:40:28.:40:35.

as medal contender and he would have been had he not had these

:40:35.:40:40.

problems. Pinotti, another brilliant season time trialler, but

:40:40.:40:46.

his time of 23.55 is not going to put Froome under any pressure at

:40:46.:40:52.

all here comes Pinotti. That underlines the quality of the ride

:40:52.:40:57.

by Froome. 26 seconds slower Chris, in 18 kilometre, you can analyse

:40:57.:41:03.

from that, that Froome is on a flyer. Well, he is certainly

:41:03.:41:07.

setting the the mark, isn't he. Taylor Phinney, we are waiting to

:41:07.:41:12.

see what he is going to do, Because he will be next. He has prepared

:41:12.:41:16.

for this vent for the past few months. We haven't seen anything of

:41:16.:41:23.

him in competition, it has been all about this Olympic time trial.

:41:23.:41:30.

did all that preparation as we come back now to Bradley Wiggins. Such

:41:30.:41:35.

an official style. I doesn't look like he is trying hard. His muscles

:41:35.:41:39.

are contracting in equality. There is no movement in his back pocket

:41:39.:41:44.

he was carrying a radio, so he is getting time checks all the way

:41:44.:41:47.

round. The British team has set up time checks on route. Even though

:41:47.:41:53.

he is in front of Cancellara his time checks won't be any more than

:41:53.:41:56.

that minute-and-a-half difference. You see how cautiously he went

:41:56.:42:00.

round that turn, Cancellara playing on his mind, the crash from the

:42:00.:42:05.

road race, as we look at the running time here of Bak of Denmark.

:42:05.:42:11.

Who is going to be the next to finish. The leading time, sorry Bak,

:42:11.:42:18.

you can see the leading time. This is Boom coming in and Boom's time,

:42:18.:42:25.

56.53 so it hasn't disturbed the leading poss, they are still intact.

:42:25.:42:30.

-- positions we are waiting to see whether yun Phinney can challenge

:42:30.:42:36.

for the top position at the 18 kilometre point. -- young Phinney.

:42:36.:42:40.

Well, it is all about that check, and for me, as I pensioned, it does

:42:40.:42:46.

define who is going to be challenging for a medal. Two or

:42:46.:42:50.

three minutes from now we will see Tony Martin coming through that

:42:50.:42:55.

checkpoint. He clearly is, you can see by the muscle definition, it

:42:55.:43:00.

all ind case he is on form, he has got over the cashes and focused on

:43:00.:43:04.

this opportunity, this Olympic time trial and on a course that suits

:43:04.:43:09.

him very well. Martin motoring along as we get back to Phinney,

:43:09.:43:14.

who is just ploughing this furrow down the middle of the road. He has

:43:14.:43:18.

his own private carpet of Tarmac ahead of him. The open clear road.

:43:18.:43:23.

It's the race of truth. That call it that in France. It is you versus

:43:23.:43:27.

the distance, the one-and-a-half minute window between yourself and

:43:27.:43:31.

your opponents, so you can be cheated or knocked off or

:43:31.:43:34.

outsprinted. Here comes Phinney, up to the 18.4 kilometre point. Now

:43:34.:43:39.

the quickest time we have had so far there, is Froome on 23.38,

:43:39.:43:44.

shown on the screen. And he is not going the beat Froome. So fin qi

:43:44.:43:49.

knows he is in a battle -- Phinney knows he is in a battle. So Phinney

:43:49.:43:56.

is there in 23.59. That is 21.5 seconds Chloe slower than the

:43:56.:44:00.

British rider. Well, you will notice with the camera shots we

:44:00.:44:04.

only get front shots, because none of these vehicles are allowed to go

:44:04.:44:08.

in front of the riders because that gives them an unfair advantage,

:44:08.:44:12.

they can slip stream. Even the motorbike cameras have to be at

:44:12.:44:17.

least half a length behind the riders. There has been another

:44:17.:44:21.

catch here, another catch has taken place. Sanchez. Sanchez who

:44:21.:44:25.

suffered the problems. There has been another catch. I think it's

:44:25.:44:30.

going to happen now. Sanchez is going to get picked up. Martin is

:44:30.:44:35.

going to go faster. Sorry Chris, that is the carrot he want, he can

:44:35.:44:39.

see Sanchez ahead of him. Let us look at the split time. Here it

:44:39.:44:45.

come, so fastest now, 12 seconds quicker than Froome. Is Tony Martin,

:44:45.:44:53.

the World Champion, he splits there on 18.4 kilometre, 23.25. He has

:44:53.:44:57.

only taken two sofrpbdz the distance. That is, shows that

:44:57.:45:01.

Froome has got the distance, because of that Tour de France

:45:01.:45:05.

endurance, the extra ground work he has put in there, he is going very

:45:05.:45:11.

well, so has Martin gone off a little bit quickly here? Jack Bauer

:45:11.:45:16.

coming in for New Zealand. He had some good splits earlier on, so let

:45:16.:45:20.

us confirm his finishing position, Bauer. Just come in, and he is

:45:20.:45:27.

third at the moment. With a time of 54 minutes 54 seconds. So, he

:45:27.:45:34.

hasn't taken the lead away from the previous pacesetter. Which is

:45:34.:45:44.
:45:44.:45:51.

at the time on the right! Wiggins looks to me as though he has done a

:45:51.:45:57.

lot of good work in this second section. There's the time to beat...

:45:57.:46:02.

Here comes Bradley Wiggins! Wiggins is going to go into the lead. Look

:46:02.:46:08.

at that! 11 seconds faster than Martin. He is the leader.

:46:08.:46:13.

CHRIS BOARDMAN: We did say that after his experiences of last year

:46:13.:46:18.

in the Tour of Spain, he does not start too quickly. He knows that

:46:18.:46:22.

this race is only about getting over the finishing line. He has got

:46:22.:46:28.

the courage of his convictions, to start steady and to measure his

:46:28.:46:33.

efforts across the whole distance. So, at the 18.4 kilometre point,

:46:33.:46:38.

Wiggins is leading. 11 seconds back, in silver medal position, is Tony

:46:38.:46:46.

Martin. Third at the moment is Froome. We are still awaiting the

:46:46.:46:49.

arrival of Fabien Cancellara. But Cancellara was down at the first

:46:49.:46:53.

split, at 7.3 kilometres. Wiggins, at the moment, is on track

:46:53.:46:58.

to deliver that gold medal. He is riding incredibly well. Fabien

:46:58.:47:03.

Cancellara, I think, is the only person who can upset this now, and

:47:03.:47:08.

he was already on the back foot after that first check. We look now

:47:08.:47:18.
:47:18.:47:19.

at Martyn. Actually it is not, it is Sanchez. Yes, Sanchez of Spain,

:47:19.:47:24.

who has had a shocking day, breaking his chain, and it looked

:47:24.:47:30.

like a puncher as well. As Froome continues the good work. The

:47:30.:47:34.

British riders at the moment in first and third, with the world

:47:34.:47:39.

champion between them. Here comes Cancellara, Spartacus himself, four

:47:39.:47:44.

times the world champion, defending Olympic champion. He is away, he is

:47:44.:47:49.

out to be! He is not going to threaten Wiggins Jiyai Shin that

:47:49.:47:53.

underlines the sheer class and talent of the Tour the France

:47:53.:47:57.

winner. Cancellara is not going to be in the medals with this, I don't

:47:57.:48:04.

think. Coming up to the line now... Here is the split... Fourth at the

:48:04.:48:10.

moment, 30 seconds slower than Brad Wiggins. Well, we said this was the

:48:10.:48:13.

time check which was going to define who was fighting for the

:48:13.:48:20.

podium positions. And it has turned out to be the case, Fabien

:48:20.:48:30.
:48:30.:48:32.

Cancellara would appear to be out of it now. So, really, it is Froome,

:48:32.:48:41.

Wiggins and Martin. This is Rodgers, and he has certainly got his race

:48:41.:48:46.

face on. As we go back to the silky smooth style of Bradley Wiggins.

:48:47.:48:51.

This is another stellar performance from him. This year, he has won the

:48:51.:48:54.

Paris-Nice, the Tour de France, amongst others. It is just

:48:54.:49:03.

unbelievable. Every time he turns out, he is a winner.

:49:03.:49:07.

CHRIS BOARDMAN: He has got a pedigree which says he will always

:49:07.:49:15.

be podium competitive. Fabien Cancellara is still in contention

:49:15.:49:19.

for a medal, but I feel that the gold medal will be contested

:49:19.:49:23.

between Tony Martin and Brad Wiggins. So, 11 seconds between the

:49:23.:49:29.

two of them at the 18.4 kilometre point. So, they are through a

:49:30.:49:34.

halfway point. It is the world champion, Tony Martin, versus the

:49:34.:49:37.

winner of the Tour de France, Bradley Wiggins. They were first

:49:37.:49:39.

and second in the World Championships last year in

:49:39.:49:43.

Copenhagen, when Tony Martin beat Wiggins by one minute 15 seconds.

:49:43.:49:50.

That's not going to be the case today. Here's Vinokurov, who earned

:49:50.:50:00.
:50:00.:50:05.

road race just a few days ago. And it is sixth position for him.

:50:05.:50:08.

think he can be relatively happy, already having a gold medal in his

:50:08.:50:16.

pocket. As we go back to Froome. The high street here absolutely

:50:16.:50:26.
:50:26.:50:26.

packed to capacity. This is where he actually pulled up on the road

:50:26.:50:30.

race, so he will have memories of this. Well, he is not pulling up

:50:30.:50:38.

now. He certainly isn't. Brad Wiggins, in that aerodynamic

:50:38.:50:44.

position, the legs pumping so efficiently. That caption is wrong,

:50:44.:50:50.

I think that is actually Froome. They both have similar styles.

:50:50.:50:53.

are very gangly, Chris Froome walking a bit more from side to

:50:53.:50:58.

side, to get that effort alt. He prefers the mountains, but I tell

:50:58.:51:02.

you what, he is making a good job of discourse, considering it is not

:51:02.:51:07.

ideal for him. We are waiting anxiously for the third time split,

:51:07.:51:12.

which will be so important, that comes at 29.9 kilometres. After

:51:12.:51:21.

that, they will be on the run to the finish. That's Wiggins. He has

:51:21.:51:25.

got his main competitors in front of him now. He had Cancellara

:51:25.:51:35.

behind him, of course, but I think to all intents and purposes, he is

:51:35.:51:38.

out of it now, so Brad Wiggins has got everybody in front of him,

:51:38.:51:42.

which gives him the ability to measure his effort, by getting lots

:51:42.:51:52.
:51:52.:52:10.

Denmark. As we go back to the world champion, Tony Martin, with his

:52:10.:52:18.

silky smooth style. Very, very good style, for people who are watching

:52:18.:52:26.

these fellas, they can learn a lot from the way they sit on the bike.

:52:26.:52:36.

The next split will be at 29.9 kilometres. The fastest we have had

:52:36.:52:46.
:52:46.:53:04.

through their at the moment is Froome has registered a 35.25.

:53:04.:53:08.

That's at the 29.9 kilometre point. So, Froome, no indication of

:53:08.:53:15.

fatigue, he continues to power his weigh. He dearly wants an Olympic

:53:15.:53:24.

medal, and the way he is going, he is going to get one. All of the

:53:24.:53:27.

winners in this race are going to come from the Tour de France, that

:53:27.:53:37.
:53:37.:53:44.

is the best possible preparation specialist from Italy, Pinotti. He

:53:44.:53:53.

is a faithful contender when he comes to this, 36 years of age.

:53:53.:53:58.

Good style from him, but I have to say, he has been outclassed today

:53:58.:54:04.

by these riders. Can we make it two British medals on the podium? That

:54:04.:54:14.
:54:14.:54:16.

really would be something. I think they are capable of doing it. As we

:54:16.:54:26.
:54:26.:54:28.

so which back to Tony Martin. the guy that can split them up.

:54:28.:54:36.

are still waiting for the arrival of Phinney. Cancellara does not

:54:36.:54:43.

look as though he has got it today. Here comes the next rider into the

:54:43.:54:53.
:54:53.:54:53.

finish, Oliveira, from Portugal. He is not going to threaten the top

:54:53.:55:03.
:55:03.:55:18.

four. Here he comes, and that puts split time for the serious

:55:18.:55:22.

contenders. Bradley Wiggins continues, in his wonderful style.

:55:22.:55:28.

He has been in imperious form. CHRIS BOARDMAN: He will know that

:55:28.:55:34.

he has just got to keep on top of it now. Once you get this far in,

:55:34.:55:38.

in the Time Trial, it becomes all about your aerobic efficiency. He

:55:38.:55:42.

will be getting constant time checks, so all he has got to do is

:55:42.:55:47.

to keep it going, do not take any unnecessary risks, do not push it

:55:47.:55:52.

too hard. And he knows how to control himself. He is on course

:55:52.:55:58.

for a gold medal. Now, what has the young American done during the last

:55:58.:56:08.

section? We wait to see. Phinney comes through on 36.13. He is 48

:56:08.:56:13.

seconds off the pace, so he is losing time. Here's a man who is

:56:13.:56:17.

not. That's right. It is Tony Martin, the world champion. It is

:56:17.:56:22.

almost feasible here for him to close down on Phinney. If he sees

:56:22.:56:28.

him in front of him, that would help him. 19 seconds faster. So, at

:56:28.:56:36.

29.9 kilometres, Chris Froome is in second. We are still waiting for

:56:36.:56:42.

Wiggins and Cancellara. Cancellara, I feel, is out of this. It is only

:56:42.:56:50.

Wiggins who can pressurise Tony Martin. I think we are looking at

:56:50.:56:54.

the final podium places here, Bradley Wiggins heading for gold,

:56:54.:56:57.

Tony Martin splitting the two British riders, and Chris Froome

:56:57.:57:07.
:57:07.:57:17.

and the first of the two will be Brad Wiggins. We are waiting to see

:57:17.:57:23.

his time at 29.9 kilometres... At the previous time split, he was

:57:23.:57:28.

ahead of Tony Martin. What will he be here? This is impressive, Chris

:57:28.:57:34.

Boardman... He is quick, but not really pushing it out that much. 22

:57:34.:57:38.

seconds, the difference, between Wiggins and Tony Martin. He has got

:57:38.:57:42.

that lead, but it is certainly not a comfortable buffer. He cannot

:57:42.:57:48.

afford to make any mistakes on this final leg. So, Bradley Wiggins is

:57:48.:57:53.

leading Tony Martin by 22 seconds at that final split. Is that window

:57:53.:57:57.

of advantage going to be enough to give Wiggins his fourth gold medal

:57:57.:58:01.

and his seventh Olympic medal? Remember, whatever middle he wins

:58:01.:58:07.

today will make him the greatest British Olympian ever. It would

:58:07.:58:13.

take his tally up to seven. He looks like a man who's really going

:58:13.:58:17.

about the job with clinical efficiency. What an incredible

:58:17.:58:21.

experience, to be riding on the roads of London, surrounded by

:58:21.:58:25.

hundreds of thousands of British fans. It is the opportunity of a

:58:25.:58:30.

lifetime, and he is making the most of it. Under the trees he comes,

:58:30.:58:36.

Bradley Wiggins, just eating away the final kilometres. This is

:58:36.:58:46.

Cancellara. We wait to see how his time will be shaping up. We are not

:58:46.:58:51.

seeing him on our long shot yet, so he is still a fair way from that

:58:51.:58:54.

time check. I don't think Cancellara is going to upset things

:58:54.:59:00.

here. It is Chris Froome we want to see? Can he disturbed that position

:59:00.:59:10.
:59:10.:59:12.

for bronze medal? Back to Chris Froome now, eating up the

:59:12.:59:18.

concluding kilometres of this Time Trial. And this is Bradley Wiggins,

:59:18.:59:22.

coming up to Sanchez, of Spain. It has been a disastrous day for

:59:22.:59:27.

censures, breaking his chain, then having a puncture. Bradley Wiggins

:59:27.:59:37.

sweeps past him. A little bonus there for Bradley Wiggins. Sanchez

:59:37.:59:40.

just riding back to the changing rooms, I think, that must be so

:59:41.:59:50.
:59:51.:59:59.

disarming, breaking his chain, then certainly gone off the boil.

:59:59.:00:02.

seemed to fade during the Tour de France as well. He has certainly

:00:02.:00:12.

not been in good form. Fabien Cancellara there, I don't think he

:00:12.:00:22.
:00:22.:00:23.

is going to disturb the podium. He will not dislodge anybody ahead of

:00:23.:00:32.

him, with 14 kilometres to go. So, Bradley Wiggins is quickest at that

:00:32.:00:36.

final checkpoint. Second, Tony Martin, the world champion. Third,

:00:36.:00:46.
:00:46.:00:51.

Wiggins has tad to deal with the pressure of being the favourite in

:00:51.:00:54.

this event. But Chris Froome he wants to get himself on the podium.

:00:54.:00:57.

At the moment I think he has a significant buffer there, he is

:00:57.:01:03.

going to manage that, so the medals will be decided among the three and

:01:03.:01:06.

at the moment, it looks like a distinct and sizeable gap between

:01:06.:01:10.

them. That is likely to be the order we see them come across the

:01:10.:01:16.

finish line and stand on the podium. The nearest challenge to Froome

:01:16.:01:22.

Chavanel, and he was 18 seconds slower, and then Cancellara was a

:01:22.:01:26.

bit slower than that, so it looks as though it will be Chavanel that

:01:26.:01:31.

could be the nearest challenger to him. Chavanel was 20 seconds at the

:01:31.:01:36.

last time check. He has come back massively, massively through this

:01:36.:01:42.

last ten kilometre mark. Chavanel then, we still with still

:01:42.:01:46.

power in the tank. Froome will have to be on his best. I am not sure we

:01:46.:01:49.

need to check that. He has gone from being two-and-a-half minute

:01:49.:01:53.

back, to one minute back, he is coming forward at a tremendous rate,

:01:53.:01:58.

if that is the case. I think that could be a technical error. Let us

:01:58.:02:01.

hope Froome has something in the tank. This man looks as though he

:02:01.:02:07.

is full to the top. That is Wiggins. He doesn't need to dig feep for

:02:07.:02:11.

anything more. He is fluid. So impressive. Flying along here, he

:02:11.:02:15.

has wings on his wheels has Bradley Wiggins as he knows he has this

:02:15.:02:23.

gold medal now, in front of him, waiting for him. Kingston ahead of

:02:23.:02:29.

him and the River Thames on the left. He hasn't got time to admire

:02:29.:02:32.

this scenic location, he just has one thing on his mind, and that is

:02:32.:02:36.

of course to be on the top position of the podium. You have the

:02:36.:02:40.

positions confirmed there then, through that 30 kilometre split. It

:02:40.:02:45.

was Wiggins leading by 22 seconds from Tony Martin and bronze medal

:02:45.:02:52.

being held by Chris Froome on 35 minutes, 25 seconds. We missed a

:02:53.:02:56.

shot of Martin, he was driving it through the corner, pushing it

:02:56.:03:02.

right to the edge of the barriers, and, well, he needs do that if he

:03:02.:03:07.

wants to catch Bradley Wiggins. Wiggins has enough room to not take

:03:07.:03:13.

desperate risks, he has to stay safe. Don't overcook it, we have

:03:13.:03:17.

that gold medal within his sights. This is Michael Rogers of Australia.

:03:17.:03:21.

Rogers now, with a finishing line in his sights, it will be a

:03:21.:03:25.

respectable time for Roger, the leader is still Castroviejo of

:03:25.:03:32.

Spain, on 53.29. He will go ahead of him. 50 metres to go. He will be

:03:32.:03:37.

the new leader. Good ride then by Michael Rogers the triple World

:03:37.:03:44.

Champion. Rogers goes into the lead. 52 minutes 51. Castroviejo slips

:03:44.:03:48.

down into second on 53.29. These the men we are waiting for and

:03:48.:03:53.

particularly Bradley Wiggins. Just coming up to Kingston bridge here,

:03:53.:03:57.

Bradley Wiggins out of the saddle momentarily, just stretching a bit,

:03:57.:04:01.

when you are locked into that position, the fatigue in the bottom

:04:01.:04:06.

of the back builds up. He has done a lot of training to,cope with that.

:04:06.:04:11.

Showing he can do it, state stay in that position, just a few weeks ago

:04:11.:04:15.

in the Tour de France, to where he effectively won that race in the

:04:15.:04:18.

final time trial. It was his last test as we come back to Chris

:04:18.:04:22.

Froome, the second best rider on that occasion, who is also heading

:04:22.:04:27.

for a podium spot here if he keeps it together. The man splitting them

:04:27.:04:32.

apart, Tony Martin of Germany, the classy time triallist, the world

:04:32.:04:37.

time trial champion at the moment. She powering his way to the finish.

:04:37.:04:42.

So Tony Martin, a World Champion from Copenhagen last year, as I

:04:42.:04:48.

mentionederier in commentary, had a very big winning cushion of 1

:04:48.:04:53.

minute 15 seconds over Wiggins. Cancellara third on that occasion.

:04:53.:04:59.

There is the confirmation of that position at 29.9 kilometres,

:04:59.:05:03.

comfortably in the lead is Bradley Wiggins, but it is all about his

:05:03.:05:08.

concluding 14 kilometres now. Back to Wiggins as we previously saw

:05:08.:05:14.

Froome. Bradley Wiggins eating up the kilometres now, moving closer

:05:14.:05:20.

and closer to that Olympic gold medal, in his home town of London.

:05:21.:05:27.

Moving into sporting immortality as we see the finishing effort here of

:05:27.:05:30.

Bert Grabsch. This is Grabsch coming in. The 37-year-old German,

:05:30.:05:35.

a former World Champion, not going to beat Michael Rogers, he goes

:05:35.:05:40.

second at the moment. The first four are Rogers, from Grabsch, from

:05:41.:05:45.

Castroviejo and Brajkovic of Slovenia, as we come back again to

:05:45.:05:49.

Bradley Wiggins, the crowd giving him tremendous support here. Look

:05:50.:05:55.

at this, lined all the way. Absolutely all the way two or three

:05:55.:06:03.

deep over the whole of this circuit. Flags waving, he has tremendous

:06:03.:06:09.

support as we come back again to the World Champion Tony Martin.

:06:09.:06:14.

Strange style he looks perched almost on that saddle. It is

:06:14.:06:17.

curious, it has changed a little since the World Championship as

:06:17.:06:21.

well. Cancellara carrying the injuries, had to abandon the Tour

:06:21.:06:25.

de France half way through, decided to go home and see the birth of his

:06:25.:06:32.

child there. 500 meeters to go then for Chris Froome. The leading time

:06:32.:06:37.

is 52 metre -- my opinions. As Froome takes the right-hander.

:06:37.:06:42.

Cautious Chris. He is cautious and he lines up now for the run, a bit

:06:42.:06:46.

of a sprint, as he can see the line ahead. He knows he's is in with a

:06:46.:06:50.

serious chance of a medal. This is Chris Froome, now taking the left-

:06:50.:06:54.

hander, and the crowd are roaring him on, the line is getting ever

:06:54.:07:02.

nearer, the time the beat, 52 minutes 51. Here comes Froome. The

:07:02.:07:08.

runner up in the Tour de France goes into the lead. His finishing

:07:08.:07:14.

team 51.57. Chris Froome is leading the time trial. An average speed of

:07:14.:07:19.

nearly 51 kilometres an hour, that is incredibly fast on these London

:07:19.:07:23.

roads. 12 technical bends to negotiate, a rolling course, that

:07:23.:07:26.

really is a strong time. I think only Martin and Wiggins are going

:07:26.:07:32.

to top it today. You are right. Here is Fabian Cancellara and we

:07:32.:07:38.

switch back to the World Champion Tony Martin. Eating up the

:07:38.:07:42.

concludingkphs of the this test against the clock. We can't match

:07:42.:07:46.

the rung time against wi, but Martin was trailing Wiggins by 22

:07:46.:07:50.

second, at the 29 kilometre point. There we are. It is all over for

:07:50.:07:53.

Chris Froome. He just needs to look at the big screen now, and he

:07:53.:07:58.

wonders if it is going to be silver or bronze for Martin. For Chris

:07:58.:08:02.

Froome I should say. This is the only person that can deprive him on

:08:03.:08:07.

that podium spot. Him and Chavanel if the checks prove to be correct,

:08:07.:08:11.

but I think Cancellara is going to have to fight another day. Hasn't

:08:11.:08:14.

had the ideal build up to this race, and I think he is out of the

:08:14.:08:18.

running and it is very rare we see that for the Swiss rider. I don't

:08:18.:08:21.

think the crash helped him in the road race, overrunning that corner

:08:21.:08:25.

and colliding with the barrier, but his hasn't been quite the time

:08:25.:08:30.

trialler he used to be since last year when he was forced down into

:08:30.:08:35.

third spot. He had a crash there but he lost that fluid style. A man

:08:35.:08:40.

who hasn't lost any fluidity at all is wigs which, look at this. He is

:08:40.:08:44.

poetry in potion. -- motion, he sits there and spins that gear

:08:45.:08:49.

effortlessly. Of all the riders we have seen, nobody is as smooth as

:08:49.:08:53.

Bradley Wiggins, his body hardly move, his style is so efficient. I

:08:53.:08:58.

must admit I am stood next to him when he has been warming up and you

:08:58.:09:03.

here the noise change as he starts to accelerate to do a sprint for

:09:03.:09:07.

warm up and you can, you can't see any change in his body movement at

:09:07.:09:15.

all. So, you can see Wiggins is coming in fantastically quickly to

:09:15.:09:18.

this finish. Tony Martin, Tony Martin is doing a solid ride here,

:09:18.:09:23.

he was unknown coming into this race, Michael Rogers takes his

:09:23.:09:29.

place in the holding pen there, on those fantastic seats. Billy No

:09:29.:09:36.

Mates at the moment! He will get some company. Here is Pinotti. He

:09:36.:09:42.

comes in and goes second in 52.69. Just over a minute shy of Froome.

:09:42.:09:48.

He has pushed Rogers down into third. We are waiting for the

:09:48.:09:52.

arrival now of Phinney, Martin, Wiggins and Cancellara. Phinney

:09:52.:09:55.

hasn't delivered the way we thought he would, but this man certainly

:09:55.:10:03.

has. Well, Chavanel has just come in with a finishing time of 56, so

:10:03.:10:09.

I think we can confirm that was a problem with timing, two ride irs

:10:09.:10:13.

cross the timing strip at the same time sometimes it confuses the

:10:13.:10:18.

Copts, that makes more sense to me. Cancellara is up there, as the top

:10:18.:10:22.

four on this, in this race at the moment. Is that Phinney ahead if it

:10:23.:10:27.

is it means that Tony Martin is going to catch Phinney for one-and-

:10:27.:10:30.

a-half minutes and that could help him in the closing stages here,

:10:30.:10:34.

because that could make him go even quicker in the approach to the line,

:10:34.:10:38.

and we are not far away from the finish now. We can see it is a head

:10:38.:10:42.

wind down here, we can see from the flag, Tony Martin choosing to go

:10:42.:10:48.

down the middle of the road here, just locked in concentration,

:10:48.:10:51.

Phinney fantastic motivation for him, the American went out very

:10:51.:10:56.

quick at the start, and thought he was in contention, what he has done

:10:56.:11:01.

is drive too quickly at as Bradley Wiggins turns into the park.

:11:01.:11:05.

kilometres to go for Bradley Wiggins. Is it going to be gold

:11:05.:11:10.

four for Wiggins and is it going to be the seventh medal for him?

:11:10.:11:15.

think he can see Tony Martin down the road what a massive incentive.

:11:15.:11:21.

It would be. One-and-a-half minutes Martin start ahead of wigs. Here is

:11:21.:11:25.

Cancellara, not his day today. Cancellara has had a sensational

:11:25.:11:29.

career as a time trialler, as we come back to Tony Martin. Look at

:11:29.:11:34.

the crowd. I thought he was going to go on the grass there for a

:11:34.:11:38.

moment. Martin goes well, these are the concluding stages of the men's

:11:38.:11:44.

time trial. Froome is leading. 51.47. Pinotti second, Michael

:11:44.:11:49.

Rogers third. But that is all going to change, believe me. Froome is

:11:49.:11:55.

going to get squeezed down, but he could still hang on to the bronze

:11:55.:11:58.

medal position. The finish is nearly here for Bradley Wiggins,

:11:58.:12:02.

the winner of the Tour de France, as he ploughs his way through, the

:12:02.:12:07.

corridor of faces here, to the cacophony of applause, Wiggins on a

:12:07.:12:11.

gold medal winning ride here as we come back to Tony Martin as he

:12:11.:12:14.

takes the right-hander and he is now almost at the end of his test

:12:14.:12:20.

against the clock. 300 metres to gore Martin. We saw Bradley Wiggins

:12:20.:12:25.

coming under the kilometre mark which means he's is 700 metres

:12:25.:12:30.

behind the German, 700 metres away from the man who is he is going to

:12:30.:12:34.

take the gold medal from. Good finish from Phinney. Here comes

:12:34.:12:38.

Tony Martin now, driving for the line. Martin Finnishs now, and let

:12:38.:12:43.

us have a look at thatment good ride by Martin, 51.21. He is in the

:12:43.:12:47.

gold medal position, Chris Froome is in silver, and Taylor Phinney is

:12:48.:12:53.

lying in the third position, on 52.38. Which are waiting for the

:12:53.:12:56.

arrival of Bradley Wiggins, who comes up to take the right-hander

:12:56.:13:00.

now. And it is looking very much to me as though Taylor Phinney is

:13:00.:13:04.

going to get pushed down to fourth. That would be the same finishing

:13:04.:13:08.

position as he achieved in the road race, here comes Wiggins now,

:13:08.:13:12.

Bradley Wiggins, the winner of the Tour de France, the holder of three

:13:12.:13:16.

gold medals, in the Olympic Games, he has got six medals to his credit

:13:16.:13:20.

and it is looking like it is going to be gold today. Here comes

:13:20.:13:24.

Bradley Wiggins up to the line. Have a look at the time. Here he

:13:24.:13:29.

comes, Wiggins goes into the lead. 50 mince and 39. This is going to

:13:29.:13:34.

be a golden gold ride for Wiggins. Cancellara cannot deny Wiggins the

:13:34.:13:39.

Vicly the and the crowd are already going ballistic. Bradley Wiggins

:13:39.:13:45.

has crossed the line to go into the lead, 50 minutes and 39 seconds,

:13:45.:13:52.

Martins second. 51 minutes 21 and Chris Froome lying third. 51 and 47.

:13:52.:13:58.

One more man to come in. Fabian Cancellara the defending Olympic

:13:58.:14:03.

champion, as they circle and wind down at the back. Martin, Phinney

:14:03.:14:07.

and Wiggins, what a ride that has been. I am not sure that Bradley

:14:07.:14:12.

Wiggins has achieved here. He knows Cancellara has still to come in. We

:14:12.:14:18.

know that nobody is going to topple him here has taken that Olympic

:14:18.:14:22.

title in London. He is free- wheeling back, we wait for the

:14:22.:14:27.

arrival of dance ar -- Cancellara. He doesn't look out of breath. He

:14:27.:14:32.

is going to take a drink, a a couple of quick comments as we wait

:14:32.:14:37.

for the arrival of Cancellara. And Wiggins now can rest, and that gold

:14:37.:14:41.

medal is his, well, there is Tony Martin, that is the effort that has

:14:41.:14:45.

been taken out of the German, who is going to get the Silver Medal.

:14:45.:14:49.

Chris Froome the bronze, and we are waiting for news on Fabian

:14:49.:14:54.

Cancellara. He is more than two kilometres, remember, behind

:14:54.:14:57.

Bradley Wiggins, because he started one-and-a-half minutes behind him,

:14:57.:15:01.

and he is also lost time. There is Chris Froome, at the moment,

:15:01.:15:04.

sitting in the bronze medal position, Bradley Wiggins hasn't

:15:04.:15:08.

joined him, and neither has Tony Martin, they are just here relaxing,

:15:08.:15:14.

and getting their energy back. So, Cancellara will be just taking the

:15:14.:15:20.

turns now, to line up for the run to the line, as Wiggins is glailted.

:15:20.:15:26.

It was an incredible ride -- congratulated, it was an incredible

:15:26.:15:29.

ride by Wiggins and three gold medals to his credit, three in the

:15:29.:15:33.

pursuit and one in the team pursuit. He doesn't look out of breath to me

:15:33.:15:43.
:15:43.:15:50.

moment by something. It is a very emotional time. He has given up an

:15:50.:15:55.

awful lot for this and he does not want to take any chances. He just

:15:55.:16:00.

does not dare believe it until everybody is over the line. He has

:16:00.:16:04.

not started celebrating, but he made do when this man crosses the

:16:04.:16:14.
:16:14.:16:20.

line. I think he said, have I got the best time? He is not sure. He

:16:20.:16:25.

is going to go ballistic with celebration. There he is relaxing,

:16:25.:16:32.

leaning against the fence, waiting for their news. This is Fabian

:16:32.:16:40.

Cancellara, but it is all in vain. Here he comes. You can see his

:16:40.:16:46.

running time. It will be a huge ovation because he is such a

:16:47.:16:54.

popular athlete. There it is, the final run to the line. He is the

:16:54.:17:03.

concluding athlete in the time- trial. He is getting an ovation,

:17:03.:17:10.

but he could be three minutes off the pace. He is sprinting for the

:17:10.:17:19.

line-out. He finishes the day in 7th position. Bradley Wiggins is

:17:19.:17:25.

the Olympic champion. It is his 4th gold medal and the 7th medal in the

:17:25.:17:31.

Olympic Games will stop he is the greatest British achieve for of all

:17:31.:17:37.

times when it comes to medals won by a Olympians. He embraces Tony

:17:37.:17:45.

Martin the world champion. Bradley Wiggins, the gold medal, Tony

:17:45.:17:50.

Martin gets the silver and Christopher Froome gets the bronze.

:17:50.:17:54.

What a polished performance by a man who is in the form of his life.

:17:54.:18:02.

Yes. There is Christopher Froome all on his own. And that is the

:18:02.:18:06.

effort. He is clutching that injured shoulder. He has obviously

:18:06.:18:13.

been in a lot of pain. He wanted to write this, it was an opportunity

:18:13.:18:18.

and a great course for him. But his build up was not that great and it

:18:18.:18:24.

was topped off by that uncharacteristic crash.

:18:24.:18:28.

trademark sideburns as he gives a wave to the crowd. His Olympic

:18:28.:18:35.

tally now becomes 7th. He has won more medals than any other British

:18:35.:18:41.

competitor in the history of the Olympic Games. Four gold medals,

:18:41.:18:46.

one silver and two bronze. It all started off in 2000 when he won a

:18:46.:18:51.

bronze in the team pursuit. He has had a silver in the team pursuit

:18:51.:18:58.

and four gold medals. I would like to say he becomes the second man to

:18:58.:19:05.

win a medal in this individual time-trial. Chris Boardman got a

:19:05.:19:11.

bronze back in 1996 in Atlanta. There we are, Bradley, it is made

:19:11.:19:20.

for you. Unprecedented, the greatest British cyclist ever. I

:19:20.:19:26.

have no hesitation in saying that. Definitely one of the greatest

:19:26.:19:32.

British sports people ever. could not agree more a. He has won

:19:32.:19:36.

the ultimate challenge on the planet, the Tour de France. Is

:19:36.:19:41.

there anything he cannot win? He surely must be given every accolade

:19:41.:19:47.

in the book. This year has been the year for Bradley Wiggins. Look at

:19:47.:19:53.

the crowd and they love it. And what a character. What about his

:19:53.:19:58.

speech when he won the Tour de France. I am going to draw the

:19:58.:20:08.
:20:08.:20:15.

raffle ticket now! Tim Kerrison is one of the instrumental coaches who

:20:15.:20:21.

helped him. He is taking time to say hello to everybody, enjoying

:20:21.:20:28.

this moment. Yes, wonderful scenes and he looks so relax. Who is he

:20:28.:20:36.

looking for? His wife could be here and his children. 50 minutes and 39

:20:37.:20:43.

seconds, a winning margin of 42 seconds. Let's listen to the roar

:20:43.:20:53.
:20:53.:20:57.

of the fans. He is still searching for somebody. Is it his family?

:20:58.:21:03.

They are all coming up to the podium area to received this man.

:21:03.:21:10.

Has he found them? Who is he looking for? They are all autograph

:21:10.:21:18.

hunting. He is looking for his family. What a ride, fantastic,

:21:19.:21:28.

unbelievable stuff. He runs races on the track. He won the European

:21:28.:21:36.

Championship, he was a world junior champion in the 90s. We go back to

:21:36.:21:45.

Fabian Cancellara who is clearly in a lot of distress. But, Bradley,

:21:45.:21:51.

what a rider you are. You have given us some moments and you have

:21:51.:21:56.

added another memorable occasion to them here. He arrives back to where

:21:56.:22:05.

he started from originally 44 kilometres ago. And in this

:22:05.:22:10.

glorious setting here. I am pleased to say that the weather is shining

:22:10.:22:15.

brightly and that is exactly what we want for the medal presentation.

:22:15.:22:23.

Is this is why? Yes, it is. At least I hope so. His children are

:22:23.:22:33.
:22:33.:22:39.

there as well. A terrific family moment for him. It is a very

:22:39.:22:43.

emotional time for the children as well. They are not quite sure what

:22:43.:22:53.
:22:53.:22:55.

is going on. In a few years' time they will look back on this. There

:22:55.:23:01.

is Chris Froome. Let's not forget Chris Froome. He is like a nearly

:23:01.:23:07.

man. But what a rider. I am sure he will get his day. With that quality

:23:07.:23:12.

he will have the opportunity in the future. But not this year. This

:23:12.:23:20.

year belongs to Bradley Wiggins. Those are tell-tale signs of the

:23:20.:23:30.
:23:30.:23:32.

crash of Fabian Cancellara. I think I want to grow my serve up --

:23:32.:23:37.

sideburns again. Some people have stick-on sideburns, actually. I

:23:37.:23:47.
:23:47.:23:52.

hope he has patented them! Luckily they fit underneath the Helmut! I

:23:52.:23:56.

think it is going to take us a long time in the sport of cycling to

:23:56.:24:00.

realise what exactly has happened over the past month with the Tour

:24:01.:24:05.

de France and the multiple stage wins and to win the Olympic gold

:24:05.:24:10.

medal in the time-trial as well. All of these things together are

:24:10.:24:14.

going to change the face of the sport in this country and hopefully

:24:14.:24:21.

popularise it as a simple mode of transport as well. Already it is

:24:21.:24:31.
:24:31.:24:33.

being reflected with over 50,000... Here are a few images for you of

:24:33.:24:43.

Bradley Wiggins. Look at these wonderful scenes.

:24:43.:24:48.

Congratulations, Bradley Wiggins, Olympic champion in the men's time

:24:48.:24:54.

trial. We asked the question if a gold medal would be like a London

:24:54.:25:02.

bus. And so it proved, you get two at once. A gold medal in the rowing

:25:03.:25:12.
:25:13.:25:13.

this morning. What an apt time for that time trial to finish. Bradley

:25:13.:25:19.

Wiggins is truly a part of Olympic royalty now. Tony Martin is the

:25:19.:25:25.

world time-trial champion. It was only last year that Tony Martin

:25:25.:25:30.

beat Bradley Wiggins. We must say congratulations to Chris Froome,

:25:30.:25:36.

his first Olympic Games. A bronze medal in the time-trial. This is

:25:36.:25:40.

what it means as far as the most successful British athletes are

:25:40.:25:45.

concerned. Steve is there because he has won the most number of gold

:25:45.:25:54.

medals, but Bradley Wiggins is in second. Two medals in 2008 and

:25:54.:26:01.

three in 2004. Also a bronze medal in the year 2000 as well. Keep your

:26:01.:26:11.
:26:11.:26:12.

eyes on Christopher Hoy. He could Truly remarkable scenes. It was

:26:12.:26:17.

also pretty special at the Olympic Park as well. This is what happens

:26:17.:26:22.

when the victory was confirmed for Bradley Wiggins. This is it, it is

:26:23.:26:27.

official. He has won himself a gold and everybody here is having the

:26:27.:26:33.

time of their lives. Everybody has been waiting to see Bradley

:26:33.:26:40.

confirmed as that gold winner. Did you see that? Yes, we did. Are you

:26:40.:26:46.

big fans? Very much so. What did you think of that? Absolutely

:26:46.:26:51.

fantastic, it will be good for British cycling. Did you think this

:26:51.:27:00.

many people would come to see cycling? No, not at all, but I am

:27:00.:27:06.

glad they have come. Have you come to see many things? Will have got

:27:06.:27:09.

tickets for the swimming tonight. Everybody says I should grow

:27:09.:27:16.

sideburns. Is that a good idea? think they will suit you. Some nice

:27:16.:27:23.

red ones will suit you. Like Phillips Idowu were. I think it is

:27:23.:27:30.

best that we leave it there. Stop it. Everybody is having a fantastic

:27:30.:27:38.

time. More medals for Team GB. I think that sums up the incredible

:27:38.:27:41.

atmosphere in the Olympic Park as news about these gold medals

:27:41.:27:47.

filters through. It may have been away from the park, but it does not

:27:47.:27:52.

mean that people here are unaware of what is happening. Joe Douglas

:27:52.:27:56.

is at Hampton court now. You have followed Bradley's Korea for so

:27:56.:28:02.

many years, and what a special day for you. It is a special day for

:28:02.:28:08.

everybody, but particularly for everybody on the course. Obviously

:28:08.:28:12.

it is a privilege to ask the questions, but for the fans on the

:28:12.:28:17.

road, this is for them and for that team and for all the people who

:28:17.:28:23.

have worked so hard. And he was here at the finish to see his

:28:23.:28:26.

children and his wife and to see them celebrating with Ms is

:28:26.:28:31.

remarkable. He has built up through the spring all those wonderful

:28:31.:28:36.

successes in the lead-up to the Tour de France. 10 days ago he it

:28:36.:28:41.

was on the top step off the podium in Paris and here he is 10 days

:28:41.:28:47.

later, one of our most decorated athletes in the Olympics. It is

:28:47.:28:51.

also worth mentioning the bridesmaid. Chris Froome has been

:28:51.:28:56.

the bridesmaid for most of the summer, but this has been a

:28:56.:29:01.

fantastic Olympic experience for him. Of course and he is a man we

:29:01.:29:06.

will see a lot of in the coming years. Also at Tony Martin coming

:29:06.:29:10.

here off the back of injuries and he has come away with a silver

:29:10.:29:17.

medal. And Fabian Cancellara, what a champion. He is just rolling in.

:29:17.:29:23.

He has come here to defend his Olympic title despite a huge crash

:29:23.:29:28.

in the spring. He broke his collarbone. He came back and

:29:28.:29:34.

crashed here during the Olympic road race. Now he has come back to

:29:34.:29:41.

defend that. He is a wonderful champion. Well done Fabian

:29:41.:29:46.

Cancellara. Enjoy the sunshine and the moment. This is what it means

:29:46.:29:52.

for the medal table as part as Great Britain are concerned. It has

:29:52.:30:02.
:30:02.:30:15.

In 1996 a certain man won a bronze medal in the time-trial and that

:30:15.:30:24.

was Chris Boardman. Chris, your emotions watching. Something of a

:30:24.:30:28.

continuation from the Tour de France. A certain amount of stunned

:30:28.:30:33.

shock. It is so big what is happening now. It would take us a

:30:34.:30:37.

long time to realise the implications and what it means. It

:30:37.:30:41.

was a sight I thought I would never see, a British rider winning the

:30:41.:30:45.

Tour de France and then riding in the streets of London to win a gold

:30:45.:30:55.
:30:55.:30:57.

At the end, that wonderful shot of him almost not out of breath, he

:30:57.:31:04.

makes it look so easy. Style, yes, but easy, no. What you see is an

:31:04.:31:08.

incredibly efficient athlete. Endurance athletes have always been

:31:08.:31:12.

the same, in a sense, in so far as they recover incredibly quickly.

:31:12.:31:17.

Sprinters, just coming off the track, they will still be breathing

:31:17.:31:21.

hard for 10 minutes. But Bradley has just done more than 3,000

:31:21.:31:25.

kilometres in France, so riding around London for an hour, he can

:31:25.:31:32.

cope with that. You have followed Froome all over the place as well,

:31:32.:31:38.

what about him? He is a man for the future, a contender for the Tour

:31:38.:31:42.

the France, no doubt about it. This is not used to rain, he would much

:31:42.:31:47.

prefer Healy course. But he is so strong at the moment, they finished

:31:47.:31:51.

in a deserving order, I would say. I have no doubt that Chris Froome

:31:51.:31:59.

will have his day. Poor old Sanchez, it goes to show how much are these

:31:59.:32:03.

guys are on the edge all the time, with all the problems that he had.

:32:03.:32:07.

These things do happen, and it is a technical sport, as we were talking

:32:07.:32:13.

about yesterday. But what a shame. This guy was in superb form, and to

:32:13.:32:17.

break your chain - it happens very rarely, I think it happened to me

:32:17.:32:22.

once in my entire career. For that to happen on the start line of the

:32:22.:32:26.

Tour de France, and even then, he tried to get on with it. It took

:32:26.:32:30.

his team by surprise as well, you do not expect mechanical problems

:32:30.:32:37.

in the first two metres. After that puncture as well, it was all over.

:32:37.:32:41.

From this beautiful picture, tomorrow, you're going to be in an

:32:41.:32:45.

equally lovely place, in the velodrome, and of course, this man,

:32:45.:32:49.

Bradley Wiggins, has moved away from the velodrome to focus on the

:32:49.:32:53.

road, but we could be talking about more cycling history there, could

:32:54.:33:02.

we not? To see Chris Hoy, if he could get another gold medal, that

:33:02.:33:07.

would be fantastic. But we have got both men's and women's team sprint

:33:07.:33:11.

tomorrow, which will be fantastic, and also the start of the team

:33:11.:33:16.

pursuit, where I think possibly, we might see a world record.

:33:16.:33:21.

remember cycling up Box Hill with you before the Games even started,

:33:21.:33:26.

and I ask you how it compared with days gone by, and you said, in the

:33:26.:33:31.

early 1990s, you were just about it this far was cycling was concerned

:33:31.:33:35.

- how does it compare these days? The scale of it has increased

:33:35.:33:40.

dramatically. It was just a small group of people, including myself,

:33:40.:33:44.

at UK Sport. But now, the strength in depth of UK cycling is

:33:44.:33:49.

incredible. There is a huge fight just to get into one of the teams

:33:49.:33:52.

for the Olympic Games, which shows it is not just the talent that we

:33:52.:33:57.

have already got, there's more behind it as well. Some clever a

:33:57.:34:01.

member of the crowd had a very clever sign there. Very sharp

:34:01.:34:06.

indeed. We will be back for the medal ceremony. Now, time to join

:34:07.:34:11.

Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson, who is also down at Hampton court. She is

:34:11.:34:15.

with Nicole Cooke, who picked up a medal in Beijing four years ago.

:34:15.:34:20.

What a moment... It has been amazing. As the guys went through

:34:20.:34:23.

the time checks there was a huge cheer, but nothing compared to what

:34:23.:34:27.

it was like when Brad Wiggins crossed the finishing line. It has

:34:27.:34:32.

been an amazing day. Yes, the Men's Time Trial had everything. There

:34:32.:34:38.

was the drama at the start, Sanchez breaking his chain, then the

:34:38.:34:43.

tension just went through the roof, as we were going through the time

:34:43.:34:48.

checks, and it looked like there was a serious chance of both Chris

:34:48.:34:51.

Froome and Bradley getting into the top three. And then when it

:34:51.:34:59.

actually happened, it was incredible. I think the atmosphere

:34:59.:35:05.

here has just been incredible, and for me, it just that sets the team

:35:05.:35:08.

off - what do you think the atmosphere will be like back in the

:35:08.:35:18.
:35:18.:35:20.

village? Oh, everyone has been waiting for a day like today. There

:35:21.:35:24.

has been a lot of anticipation. Yesterday, everyone was talking

:35:24.:35:28.

about what might happen. I'm sure from now on, it will just take off.

:35:28.:35:34.

You have been on the podium, in Beijing, at the Olympics - what

:35:34.:35:38.

will mean the most to Brad Wiggins, winning the gold medal, or becoming

:35:38.:35:44.

the best Olympian ever? I think the way he won this muddle today, it

:35:44.:35:50.

was an individual gold, he did it by himself, on the bike, I think

:35:50.:35:58.

that will mean a lot to him. But when he reflects on everything he

:35:58.:36:02.

has achieved, I'm sure he will be very proud of all of those medals,

:36:02.:36:07.

and everyone will have its own story. Thank you very much. We will

:36:07.:36:14.

let you go and congratulate the boys. And you can see here, Bradley

:36:14.:36:18.

Wiggins, lining up to go and collect that gold medal. Just

:36:18.:36:22.

behind him, Chris Froome, with a well-earned bottle of water. We can

:36:23.:36:30.

hand you back to Chris Boardman and Sue Porter, for the medal ceremony.

:36:30.:36:36.

HUGH PORTER: What a moment this is going to be, the medal ceremony,

:36:36.:36:43.

here at Hampton Court Palace, for the Men's Time Trial. It is going

:36:43.:36:47.

to be a very British affair, with two men standing on the podium to

:36:47.:36:57.
:36:57.:36:58.

collect their medals. The Mancini going to present the gold medal

:36:58.:37:01.

will be the vice-president of the International Olympic Committee. He

:37:01.:37:09.

was a member of the fencing team in 1976, and he was also a member of a

:37:09.:37:12.

World Championship winning team in the same year, as well as the

:37:12.:37:22.
:37:22.:37:25.

following year. Bradley Wiggins' voracious appetite for winning

:37:25.:37:28.

medals in the Olympic Games continues. That is his seventh

:37:28.:37:35.

medal, and his fourth gold medal. No other British Olympian has ever

:37:35.:37:45.
:37:45.:37:45.

won seven medals. He is the ultimate achiever.

:37:45.:37:53.

CHRIS BOARDMAN: It is a real contrast, looking at the scene now,

:37:53.:37:59.

after we have just seen hundreds of thousands of people on the streets.

:37:59.:38:02.

It is difficult to believe that they are going to present the gold

:38:02.:38:08.

medal, and there's nobody there. Well, at the moment, everybody is

:38:08.:38:12.

lining up for the ceremony. It is what we have been talking about for

:38:12.:38:22.

quite some time. We almost feel like we're urging sing everybody.

:38:22.:38:27.

Everybody was saying, barring incident, it was going to be

:38:27.:38:31.

Bradley Wiggins' gold medal. will be back in a few moments, when

:38:31.:38:41.
:38:41.:38:41.

the medal ceremony is actually about to take place.

:38:41.:38:51.
:38:51.:38:55.

Let's summarise what has been Bradley Wiggins' stellar year just

:38:55.:39:05.

gets better and better. He wins his seventh Olympic medal. Helen Glover

:39:05.:39:10.

and Heather Stanning created history by winning the first gold

:39:10.:39:18.

medal for the team at London 2012. And Great Britain also took bronze

:39:18.:39:22.

in the Men's Eight in a thrilling race at Eton Dorney. At one point

:39:22.:39:27.

it looked like they might have upset the favourites, Germany. And

:39:27.:39:30.

eight badminton players have been disqualified from the Games fraud

:39:30.:39:38.

not using their best efforts to win. News on that appeal coming up

:39:38.:39:44.

shortly. But right a now, as you can see, the medal ceremony is

:39:44.:39:54.

about to happen. HUGH PORTER: It is a moment to

:39:54.:40:02.

savour. There is the vice-president of the International Olympic

:40:02.:40:11.

Committee. Himself, an achiever, in his time, in fencing, in 1976.

:40:11.:40:17.

Bradley Wiggins, who has once again delivered. The man who will deliver

:40:17.:40:25.

the flowers, the president of the governing body for cycling. It is a

:40:25.:40:32.

glorious setting here, at Hampton court. Magnificent weather for the

:40:32.:40:42.

presentation. The winner of the bronze medal, representing Great

:40:42.:40:47.

Britain, is Chris Froome. Another superb performance by him, the man

:40:47.:40:52.

who was a runner-up in the Tour de France. A tremendous ovation he is

:40:52.:41:02.
:41:02.:41:07.

receiving. A man I feel sure will be standing on the top spot of the

:41:07.:41:17.
:41:17.:41:28.

podium within the next few seasons. And the winner of the silver medal,

:41:28.:41:35.

it is the current world champion, Tony Martin, representing Germany.

:41:35.:41:39.

CHRIS BOARDMAN: He looked happy with his performance today. I don't

:41:39.:41:43.

think he thought he was in with a chance of a victory. He was happy

:41:43.:41:46.

with the silver medal, I think, on this occasion, after the issues he

:41:47.:41:53.

has had with broken bones. He rode courageously, but the window of

:41:53.:41:56.

advantage for Wiggins was 42 seconds, and Tony Martin just did

:41:56.:42:06.
:42:06.:42:17.

The Olympic champion and gold medal-winner, representing Great

:42:17.:42:25.

Britain, Bradley Wiggins! His voracious appetite for Olympic

:42:25.:42:30.

medals continues, and this gold medal is his seventh in the Olympic

:42:30.:42:36.

competition. Nobody in the history of the Olympic Games from Great

:42:36.:42:45.

Britain has earners many medals as Brad Wiggins. Sheer class, Brad

:42:45.:42:50.

Wiggins. Masterclass, the personification of dominance,

:42:50.:43:00.
:43:00.:43:02.

nobody could compete with him. The crowd chant, Wiggo, and he is

:43:02.:43:12.
:43:12.:43:13.

conducting them! What a character! Please stand for the national

:43:13.:43:23.
:43:23.:43:23.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 95 seconds

:43:23.:44:18.

THE NATIONAL ANTHEM OF GREAT JAKE HUMPHREY: Congratulations to

:44:18.:44:21.

Brad Wiggins and Chris Froome, two tremendous performances from them,

:44:21.:44:27.

and Tony Martin, the world Time Trial champion, also amongst the

:44:27.:44:31.

medals. Sue Barker joins me now. The cheer in the studio here was

:44:31.:44:36.

quite something, wasn't it? It was absolutely fantastic. Great for

:44:36.:44:39.

Brad Wiggins, he is so calm under pressure. Looking at those

:44:39.:44:43.

fantastic scenes, those crowds did not have to buy a ticket for that,

:44:43.:44:47.

but they were part of this whole the Olympic experience. The sun

:44:47.:44:52.

More cycling action, with the men taking to the streets around Hampton Court Palace for the men's individual time trial. Britain's Bradley Wiggins was the 2011 world silver medallist.
