Do you know if we could just go along and watch?  Me and Jr are off this week and it would be great for him to go and watch some track cycling

That's what they mean Schmunks - you go along and watch them training.

Maybe my title was a bit misleading.....

Yeah, it was all your fault

And me and Jr are definitely going now, so I have one very excited young man on my hands

If its anything like the GB squad training a month or so ago I would take a book - lots of efforts with sometimes long gaps in between - kids got bored after the first hour with the GB squad

I though Newport was a bit too far East for Seren?

What a little secret diamond Newport Sports Village is .

Had a fantastic time watching Team GB training session.  Jr loved it and wants to have a go so I foresee another trip to Newport in the not too distant future

Thanks Cat for tipping us the wink

No worries Schmunks. I was working today in Newport, but didn't finish in time to see GB. Rushed home for club TT run.

When I'm down that way for work I swim with NEWTS tri club. I've never seen so many lanes in a 25m pool. Extremely empty in the mornings too.
