1. Sir Chris Hoy got seriously burned by some kids.

2. Geraint Thomas excellently sums up Ed Clancy’s performance in the team pursuit at the Track World Championships.

3. It was so sunny on one training ride that Joaquim Rodriguez got the Katusha logo burned into his thigh. Either that or the Russian team are stepping up their sponsorship obligations.
