Yes, you really did see staff in Rio repairing the velodrome track with duct tape

Is there anything duct tape can’t fix? Well yes, probably this.

So one of the Dutch cyclists just took a really nasty tumble in the velodrome that was so bad it left a dented groove in the track surface.

Now it’s super important this surface remains smooth so none of the other riders go flying off and crash – so what did the staff spring into action to do?

Fix it with duct tape.

Viewers found themselves describing what they were seeing, just to make sure they were actually seeing it.

Is that… OK?!

It doesn’t look OK.

Lots of people found it way too relatable.

While those with business minds were thriving.

Good luck, other cyclists (you might need it more than normal).
