Procycling's Ellis Bacon files his final report

The pomp and circumstance that is the Beijing Olympics is coming to an end for Procycling's Ellis Bacon, but oh what a delightful time it was for Great Britain at the Laoshan Velodrome. Ellis also found the scene outside the velodrome to be equally interesting, if not a bit curious.

For starters, it's no secret that among the billions of people in China there are billions of bikes. Also, the much-hyped smog and heat had more of an affect on the men's road race than any other cycling event, Bacon noticed.

Check out his final posting here, and look for his extensive Beijing Olympic coverage in the next issue of Procycling.
