I enjoyed a trip to the 2012 Olympic Velodrome on Friday afternoon courtesy of the good folks at Drivers Jonas Deloitte - see the photos from my colleague Debbie Ford below.
I have been covering the progress at the Olympic Park for a good while now, but this was the first time I have seen a venue being used for compeitive action. And it was brilliant.
The roar of the crowd when Great Britain were in action made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
It gave me a small glimpse of what to expect come the Olympics.
And that was just one 6,000-seater venue in action. Within in a matter of a couple of hundred metres you can add the 80,000-capacity main stadium, 17,500-seat aquatics centre and 12,000-seater basketball arena. The enormity of the whole thing is incredible.
Some might complain about disruption to London's infrastructure, but once the Games are underway I am certain people will get in the spirit and the atmosphere is going to be electric.
