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.
There's no other way of saying it, they are repairing the velodrome with duct tape. #Rio2016

They've just replaced a groove in the velodrome track caused by a crash with gaffa tape & rolled up paper. Not even kidding. #Rio2016

It doesn't look OK.

Repairing the Olympic velodrome track with a rolled up envelope & some duck tape! My kind of DIY. Tremendous stuff! #Rio2016

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