That was a wicked final turn from Mr Unknown Cyclist. He really hooked it in hard down low.

Looks like Hoy didn't turn his head far enough, and didn't realise where he was!

He saved so much energy he didn't get to ride them. That was pretty poor riding on his part.

Goes to show, athe race aint over till you cross the line. They are there for a reason, usually because they are fast enough to be there.

Hoy didnt really show any respect there, he thought the other guy would throw in the towel.

Sometimes you need a punch in the face to remind you that it hurts.

It's sad to know that an elite athlete lost to an unknown one, but I think you guys are being to though on him, time has gone by and he's still in the game. Of course he was better before sometime ago, let's remember that he even set a new olympic record http://www.olympic.org/cycling-track-sp ... divual-men
