Team GB cycling chief's most memorable performance of the Games

The moment Jess Varnish and Victoria Pendleton sped to a team sprint world record, only to face the heartache of being disqualified, was the most memorable performance of the Games for Team GB cycling chief Dave Brailsford.

He described that ride as "dynamite", adding

"For them to be the first riders on the track. They got disqualified and it is really, really sad for Jess.

"She should take an enormous amount of pride that she got up on this track and was the first British rider with Vicky and they delivered a world record - that just set everybody up.

"That is the very thing that I will remember."
