Despite the billions of pounds pumped into the organisation of the London Olympic Games there has been a short-fall in the proof-reading budget: the tickets for the cycling time trial event - which arrived on doormats today - are labelled for a hitherto unknown event, the Cycling Road Time Trail.

BikeBiz.com has asked LOCOG, the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, to explain how such a mistake could occur.

LOCOG is led by Seb Coe and is based in Canary Wharf along with the Olympic Delivery Authority.
