  • Andrew

    Is there a womens’s list/ starting order/times?

  • Dom

    I’m really pleased to see Cancellara has recovered enough to be competing and I too will certainly be cheering him on loudly. I can’t think of anyone else I’d rather see up there on the podium …receiving a well-earned bronze :-)

  • Martin Garrad

    Thanks CW your the business,providing us with the start list and timings for tomorrows time- trial. London 2012 website was useless, and the staff member equally so this morning,por knowledge of cycle sport anyway!!! Is it to much to ask for the same info for the Women’s Event. Many Thanks.

  • Del Smith

    Didn’t see any sign of a big screen at Weston Green when I rode up Hampton Court Way earlier, but hopefully it will be up tomorrow. As an alternative, it might be good to watch between Cobham and Esher on the hilly part of the course. Love the comment….they all go off at the same time!!!

  • elizabeth gardner

    At last I have managed to find the start list and times of starting for the time trial event. It has taken me about an hour! Thank goodness I thought of Cycling Weekly because you cannot find it anywhere else!! Ridiculous!

  • Stephen

    OK, maybe I looked late, but all the running order/time info is up here now isn’t it? I see “Sparticus” is running, so I’m guessing no lasting issues from his fall? Should you cheer him?? Well, I’d say a sporting, muted cheer :-) But save the lungs for Brad!

  • Nick P

    yep – just had similar conversation with LOCOG – no start list available – the chap I spoke to tried to tell me they all went off at the same time!!!!

  • David W

    Just had very frustrating conversation with the numpties at Locoq who tell me that they cannot release start order/numbers. And then came the killer comment “We can’t understand why people want to know this information.” At this point words failed me……………..!!

  • john m

    Pleased to see you have starting competitor lists. It would be great to have start times as well.
    2012 site has so little info – its pants.

  • Barry McCann

    Massively frustrated that the start list for men or women is not available 24 hours before-hand. I will certainly cheer on Spartacus – living up to his nick-name carrying his shoulder injury from the road race into the TT…
    I am Spartacus!

  • Mitch

    um, you have two riders (Phinney AND van Garderen) listed for the US … ?!?

  • laurence

    Mark – i’ll be cheering Cancellara too. it’ll be great to have a british win, but Fab is jusy awesome.

    cheers for the start list, the official site has very little info.

  • Sean M

    Be Careful how far you go away from the screens, we were on the Box Hill Loop on the decent Saterday, and never got to a screen in time to see the end. (Massive disappointment anyway, so maybe that saved the trouble)

  • Mark

    What is the etiquette for cheering Cancellara? A great rider but a huge threat for British medals.
    Plan to watch it on the dual carriage way between Esher and Hersham – long straight road and should be quietish there, before the big screen in Esher to catch the end.

  • Seth B

    It’s immensely frustrating that this information hasn’t been released yet, watching a time trial without it is a frustrating experience. I feel that we might have repeat of the road race timing debacle.

  • Derek Bayly

    According to the http://www.gosurrey.info website there will be live screens at Weston Green, Esher & Cobham Recreation Ground. I shall be watching the live action on the Burwood Road, Hersham stretch and am also trying to find out the race order! Enjoy and cheer on Team GB.

  • Richard B

    I didn’t see any big screens in Esher but there seemed to be plenty of pubs that I guess were showing the road races at the weekend. Gamesmaker info shows an intermediate time check in Esher so if you can find that you might get up to the minute info

  • Stewart Bubb

    Dave C – I live in Esher and watched both road races in the town centre. There was a big screen on Esher Green both days so you could watch to the finish after the races went through. I assume it will be there again tomorrow.

  • Dave C

    If you watch it at Esher, do you know if there are screens there to keep up to date with the race?

    THREE RIDERS ARE LISTED FOR HOLLAND !!!

  • Dave

    I spoke to the Olympics helpline this morning to try to find out the start list and order (before I’d read the above).

    The London 2012 website isn’t much help as it only lists the first 30 names, and those are in alphabetical order, so it doesn’t include Menchov, Vinokourov, Wiggins etc. There may be a Page 2, but there’s no indication of how to get to it !

    Re the starting order, the helpful lady on the phone said that it wasn’t published yet “for security reasons”, but that it should be either tomorrow or Wednesday morning.

    Peter, no you don’t need a ticket unless you want to be at Hampton Court for the start/finish. We watched the road race on Saturday from Esher and had a fantastic view.

  • Stewart Bubb

    Like the previous commentators where and when can I get details of the starting order? Also how is the order determined?

  • peter griffin

    do I need tickets to view the olympic time trials

  • Sherwin Smith

    Does anybody know the starting order yet?

  • John

    Did you find the starting order?

  • Nick

    Does anyone know the starting order?
