at's! Here they come, up to the line! Are, look at the time! It is

:01:29.:01:36.

a new world record! And Great Britain have won the gold medal! A

:01:36.:01:43.

faultless display there. They have beaten the Australians emphatically.

:01:43.:01:47.

Australia get the silver, and already, the celebrations are

:01:47.:01:53.

beginning to unfold. What a rider that was. Not a lot more you can

:01:53.:02:00.

ask. A gold medal and a world record, in the final in London. But

:02:00.:02:10.
:02:10.:02:12.

today we are going to remember for that was something special.

:02:12.:02:18.

they have taken almost a second off the previous mark. Staggering.

:02:18.:02:26.

did rejig the tactics after the first round. AA great job. We have

:02:26.:02:32.

to protect Peter a bit more. Super, super strong in this competition.

:02:32.:02:39.

Darren Thomas, given the option in the last kilometre or -- deride it

:02:39.:02:49.
:02:49.:02:49.

Thomas. Lagat the celebrations. -- looked at the celebrations. Look at

:02:49.:02:56.

the applause a growing around here, or round the arena. Thomas was in

:02:56.:03:00.

the team in Beijing, now he wins the Gold Medal again. Ed Clancy was

:03:00.:03:05.

also in the squad. They also are members of the winning team. That

:03:05.:03:09.

may once again confirm, Great Britain have won the gold medal,

:03:09.:03:19.
:03:19.:03:21.

they are Olympic champions. As the Australians looked dejected,

:03:21.:03:28.

it is pure delight and relief for Great Britain. I would expect it

:03:28.:03:31.

they might have heard that roar in Manchester at the British Cycling

:03:31.:03:39.

Centre! That was incredible. It was the most incredible noise I have

:03:39.:03:49.
:03:49.:04:04.

heard. They broke her own world record, they are dominant, they are

:04:04.:04:08.

the 2012 Olympic champions, and did you join us on BBC2 shortly, they

:04:08.:04:12.

will get there will earn two gold medals. Congratulations to the

:04:12.:04:22.
:04:22.:04:35.

We have got to get our breath back after that. I knew it was going to

:04:35.:04:39.

be something special. But here is a chance to look at a few images of

:04:40.:04:46.

the British quartet. Such a well- drilled unit, all the numbers have

:04:46.:04:52.

been crunched in the dunes, all the technique perfected, and the final

:04:52.:04:59.

training in in Newport, it has all come to fruition. Also, there have

:04:59.:05:03.

got to be no egos, I said that several times, it is not about

:05:03.:05:07.

doing equal terms, licking the strongest, it takes a lot of

:05:07.:05:14.

courage to back off, very important that they do all that they can, not

:05:14.:05:21.

the same as everybody else. Thomas missed out on a spot, it could have

:05:21.:05:25.

been guaranteed in that Tour de France team, just to concentrate on

:05:25.:05:31.

that event. Fantastic to see him get this reward. This possibly

:05:31.:05:36.

going to be his last appearance, he wants to concentrate on the road.

:05:36.:05:40.

What a way to go out. The Australians have to be happy,

:05:40.:05:44.

because they couldn't have done any more today, they rode their hearts

:05:44.:05:51.

out. They certainly did. Joanna Rowsell, she is the leader her

:05:51.:06:01.
:06:01.:06:09.

rider as we look at all the biter of a competition, and that is

:06:09.:06:19.
:06:19.:06:24.

You are going off to your medal ceremony, but congratulations, how

:06:24.:06:29.

does it feel? Absolutely amazing, it is a team event, but we have to

:06:29.:06:38.

take our hats off, they read absolutely amazing. Congratulations,

:06:38.:06:42.

a double Olympic champion, I know you are under pressure to go and

:06:42.:06:46.

collect a gold, we don't want you to miss that, but tell us about

:06:46.:06:51.

that performance? That has been a lot of hard work. Yes, the amount

:06:51.:06:56.

of work we have had to put in. In November, we all at the track at

:06:57.:07:00.

7:30am, they stopped us going to a concert in November, they have been

:07:00.:07:04.

on our backs since then, it has been full on, to finish it off has

:07:04.:07:10.

been amazing. I was ill last week, mentally it has been really hard,

:07:10.:07:18.

without these boys, we couldn't have done it. The crowds, it was

:07:18.:07:22.

just unbelievable. My ears are ringing, it is too loud! Go and

:07:22.:07:31.

I think that is the only man in the hall of the Velodrome is thought

:07:31.:07:34.

that was too loud. What a remarkable moment for British

:07:34.:07:42.

cycling. I am lost for words. to it. You have got to rewind the

:07:42.:07:47.

clock, 2003, 2005, I'm talking today Brailsford every year, and

:07:47.:07:52.

every year it gets better. Four years ago I thought we would get

:07:52.:08:00.

some golds, he is amazing, whatever he is doing, it is just amazing. He

:08:00.:08:05.

is producing and producing. Once you create that momentum and that

:08:05.:08:10.

belief within the team, they have got the support staff around them,

:08:10.:08:18.

the management around it, even the young kids, we had two beginners in

:08:18.:08:23.

there, feeding off the senior guys in that team with that belief a. It

:08:23.:08:33.
:08:33.:08:34.

You have got people on the track feeding from what you are doing on

:08:34.:08:39.

the road, and people on the road like you are feeding off from what

:08:39.:08:43.

people like Chris Hoy and Ed Clancy are doing on the track, it is like

:08:43.:08:52.

British cycling is so buoyant! Absolutely. It is just a knock on,

:08:52.:08:57.

not on, not on, you keep having to raise the bar, you cannot sit on

:08:57.:09:02.

one level. You have to keep pushing, keep pushing, keep getting the

:09:02.:09:10.

standards higher. You have both been involved in British Cycling in

:09:10.:09:13.

the Dave Brailsford era. These kinds of performances are not by

:09:13.:09:21.

luck. No, it is not, it is a lot of hard work. That is where I got my

:09:21.:09:26.

biggest improvements, at the end of my career. You break down the nuts

:09:26.:09:30.

and bolts of your life, you look at nutrition and dressed and every

:09:30.:09:33.

ounce of training and you try to improve all of those little

:09:33.:09:39.

elements -- nutrition and sleep. Everyone is perfecting everything.

:09:39.:09:44.

They are coming up with advances and technology as well, advances in

:09:44.:09:49.

coaching techniques which is moving us along. It was not that many

:09:49.:09:54.

years ago you would have gone below four in a pursuit, and look at it

:09:54.:10:00.

now, 3.5! I am not going to guess how it will be in the future, let's

:10:00.:10:05.

just keep getting better. If you were watching it and thinking, I

:10:05.:10:09.

was excited but surely Mark Cavendish, Sports Personality of

:10:09.:10:14.

the Year, who has won stages from the Tour de France, surely he did

:10:14.:10:19.

not get excited. Trust me, he was on his feet and shouting at the top

:10:19.:10:25.

of his voice. You were so impressed with Ed Clancy. Incredible, in the

:10:25.:10:33.

last kilometre. Like Peter Kennaugh said before, Steven Burke and Ed

:10:33.:10:40.

Clancy, they were all there to the last 500m. They were so it drilled

:10:40.:10:48.

tonight, they looked release moves. Ed Clancy is the most experienced,

:10:48.:10:52.

probably the best in the team pursuit in the world. Steven Burke

:10:52.:10:58.

missed out in Beijing and it is an incredible ride and I am super,

:10:58.:11:05.

super proud of them. Australia obviously lost a man at this point,

:11:05.:11:10.

but Great Britain making it look easy. Take us inside the body of a

:11:10.:11:16.

rider. Explain how much it would have been hurting. The first time

:11:16.:11:21.

it feels kind of easy. It is an event where you don't look for the

:11:21.:11:26.

effort, the effort comes to you and it can continue in a moment or

:11:26.:11:32.

gradually eased into you. You feel it in the last kilometres. I am

:11:32.:11:37.

sure with the crowd, you will feel that a lot less today because they

:11:37.:11:44.

were incredible. They only lost a man in the last 500m and held it,

:11:44.:11:49.

they held the world record the whole way through, bang on. It

:11:49.:11:53.

shows how a dedicated they have been this year. It shows had

:11:53.:11:58.

dedicated the coach has been. They have got it absolutely spot on

:11:58.:12:03.

perfect. As you walk into this corner of the velodrome, there is a

:12:03.:12:08.

huge banner that says "inspired a generation" and it is these

:12:08.:12:14.

performances that are doing just that. Absolutely. When I was

:12:14.:12:19.

grubbing up looking at Steve Reed Drake and Daley Thompson -- Steve

:12:19.:12:24.

Redgrave. And now it is cycling. I never would have thought that. I

:12:24.:12:28.

hope it produces more cyclists in the future. At home, you might see

:12:28.:12:32.

these guys are achieving this excess but we still need in flux

:12:32.:12:38.

and people coming in. Get on your bike, basically! You could be

:12:38.:12:44.

Britain's future hopes! Give Mark a couple of more years though! Don't

:12:44.:12:50.

worry, you are fast enough! It is not just about inspiring a

:12:50.:12:54.

generation and people at home, it is about inspiring the rest of

:12:54.:12:59.

British sport. We have spoken about marginal gains. They have the

:12:59.:13:03.

secret squirrel Club working on every tiny thing to do with the

:13:03.:13:08.

technology on the bike and the helmet and the outfits and that is

:13:08.:13:15.

it really important part of this excess. Yes, it is structured

:13:15.:13:20.

almost like a business. Every detail is seen to. A lot of the

:13:20.:13:24.

other performers directors in other sports come to see Dave, he is

:13:24.:13:29.

probably the most in-demand performance director in the country.

:13:29.:13:33.

He is a great motivational talk of. I was speaking to Chris Boardman

:13:33.:13:38.

before, he spent so much time away from his family working with his

:13:38.:13:43.

bikes, the guys he was working with, the mechanics learning how to fix

:13:43.:13:48.

them and put them together. The staff are incredible. They work so

:13:48.:13:56.

hard. I imagine Chris Boardman was a rather emotional man during that.

:13:56.:14:00.

He knows what it is like to write during this sort of thing. Special

:14:00.:14:08.

scenes. As emotional as it was for Chris Hoy last night, but we are

:14:08.:14:12.

not done for the evening. We still have got Victoria Pendleton to come

:14:12.:14:18.

in the keirin. It keeps on rolling. It does. Hopefully Victoria can

:14:18.:14:23.

keep the wheels rolling and we can bring another medal home. She will

:14:23.:14:27.

take them energy from what these guys have just done. It will instil

:14:27.:14:32.

a bit of extra belief in Victoria. I am sure she is super-confident

:14:32.:14:38.

right now. The coaches will have reflected on her last performance.

:14:38.:14:42.

They will let her know that she is on form and ready to go, and bring

:14:43.:14:50.

it on. At this point you just want to keep it over and get it over.

:14:50.:14:54.

The carpenters have banked 300,000 nails into the floorboards to build

:14:54.:15:00.

this, and they did a good job. Congratulations once again to Team

In the World Cup earlier this year on the boards, they beat Great

Britain, we went to the World Championships in Melbourne in April,

:17:30.:17:36.

and Great Britain turned the tables to win at the Crown. 0.1 of a

:17:36.:17:41.

second separated them. And now Australia have been beaten again

:17:41.:17:46.

into the silver medal position. The margin of difference here is much

:20:28.:20:35.

the ultimate class throughout all three rounds. Stellar performance,

well done, boys. Ed Clancy, Geraint Thomas, Steven Burke and Peter

Kennaugh. So Britain's fruit Paul Hall continues. Just wondering how

:20:52.:21:02.
:21:02.:21:13.

many gold medals we are finally A full house, and we have still got

:21:13.:21:19.

another final to go, where Victoria Pendleton will be out to try and

:21:19.:21:24.

achieve the same podium position as these four lads. Come on, lads,

:21:24.:21:31.

give us a smile! The Aussies are trying to give us a smile. What a

:21:31.:21:36.

pity the individual pursuit was taken out, the blue Riband event

:21:36.:21:46.
:21:46.:21:49.

So they leave the podium, the Kiwis leading off it. The gold medal

:21:50.:21:53.

winners, Great Britain, in the middle, I'm sure there might be a

:21:53.:21:58.

slight celebration tonight. Australia with the silver. The

:21:58.:22:04.

enthralling contest lived up to its reputation, and it was the Great

:22:04.:22:09.

Britain with its emphatic display that won the gold medal in a new

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

Well done indeed, they should be proud indeed of those gold medals,

:22:22.:22:26.

which I am sure will be put somewhere very special.

:22:27.:22:30.

Congratulations to Australia, really bring the fight to Great

:22:30.:22:35.

Britain, but just falling short. Once again the Velodrome a

:22:35.:22:41.

reverberating to the national anthem. We have asked a question,

:22:41.:22:47.

how much faster can you go? They will be saying, I want to go faster,

:22:47.:22:52.

harder why do that? Are it is a very good question. I think it is

:22:52.:22:57.

just beliefs. If you believe you can go faster, you work hard enough,

:22:57.:23:01.

you will do it. Obviously, with advances in technology and training,

:23:01.:23:07.

but you have got to believe in it, too. Give us your thoughts, if you

:23:07.:23:11.

were to return to the track and return to the Olympics in Rio, team

:23:11.:23:16.

pursuit would be the events you have to ride in. Is this not

:23:16.:23:26.
:23:26.:23:26.

persuading you? Absolutely, it is an incredible thing on the track, a

:23:26.:23:33.

great family, to be part of that, we just inspire each other, build

:23:33.:23:39.

on the confidence. I thought maybe we would see a sub 3.50 ride it

:23:39.:23:44.

this games, but I guess we will have to wait for Rio! Will not have

:23:44.:23:49.

to wait too much longer, will we? Let's just take a look at these

:23:49.:23:53.

scenes, I have to let you know we are about to be joined by viewers

:23:53.:23:58.

on BBC One, they will be joining us to see a Victoria Pendleton ride
