Another Gold for Victoria Pendleton

Varnish (front) and Pendleton go for it!


Agent Triple P's favourite cyclist, Victoria Pendleton, won another gold medal yesterday in the UCI World Cup team sprint, along with Jess Varnish who produced the ride of her life to power the duo to a new world record. 



Unexpectedly beating the hitherto invincible Australians it was one of two gold medals for Britain's womens squad last night as the team pursuit trio beat the Canadians.

This was the first event in Britain's new 6,000 seater Olympic velodrome and it augers well for the main event in August this year, especially as Pendleton has said she has had trouble motivating herself, lately.




Pendleton continues to model regularly although is surprised that she keeps being asked as she claims retouchers have to do so much work on removing her scars.  One of her crashes was so nasty she actually stopped breathing for a while.


The seat of her power


She got in trouble for posing for this picture for a session for the Evening Standard last year, enraging (probably flabby) feminists.  She doesn't seem to care much for the feminist cycling sorority however, thank goodness.




Congratulations Vicki!

  1. Thanks for that. I'm an old bike racer and think there's nothing better than a smart, pretty woman with strong hindquarters.
