Track Worlds Sum Up


I know nothing about it and as usual I didn't watch it because I don't like it that much. But the Track Worlds in London have been an important moment of the cycling season and there are a few thigs I want to underline.
First of all, the Italian Filippo Ganna won the Men's Individual Pursuit and in Italy nobody know. It's a shame. It isn't that cycling is unpopular, it's that media ignore cycling even when Italians win.
In Great Britain instead cycling is trending, I have seen it last summer with my eyes. They were racing at home, the start was disappointing but in the end they collected 9 medals! 5 gold, 1 silver and 3 bronze. Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins made history, as well as an incredible Laura Trott and Jason Kenny. To name few.
2nd comes Germany (3, 2 and 3: total 8 medals) and 3rd is Australia (2, 2  and 1. Total 5 medals). Italy is only 11, with just 1 madal, Ganna's one.
