Whatever the weather, mood or circumstance there is forever a corner of E20 that is a beacon of passion and excellence. That these are the last days of the London 2012 Velodrome as we know it does nothing to diminish its aura. The Olympics are gone and the Paralympics are in its place. And yet the transition between the two has been seamless. The quality has been so excellent that the British riders haven't had it all their own way so far. That said, there's no fear of being landed with wooden spoons.
Attending Saturday afternoon's finals session, there was no filler as the sell-out crowd were treated to back-to-back medal class races - four in total. And with GB interest in three of them, all eyes were on the infamous track. The mood amongst cycling fans was strong, buoyed the morning's performance of Neil Fachie and Barney Storey, winning gold in the tandem. Yet all the attention was on Storey's wife - Sarah.
Having won gold two days earlier in the C5 individual pursuit, Sarah Storey was back in the C4-5 individual time trial, riding last from a field of fourteen. It was an event that toiled for what seemed like an eternity in the stands. Leads and records exchanged hands between each individual sprint. The field was strong and as the Mancunian saddled up, Jennifer Schuble's time of 37.941 seconds looked like a big ask for someone chasing multiple titles in London. Aficionados know Storey's prior - whilst a Paralympian of great note she has been good enough to be part of the Team GB setup for many years and under different circumstances may have been been part of this year's Olympic team.
Right now however, no one's talking about Laura or Vicky.
Storey has an aura - that word again - that is reminiscent of Sir Chris Hoy. For some reason, you just know that once the clock counts down she will get the job done. There was ruthless efficiency in the defeat of Anna Harkowska in her previous victory here and again, ground down each sector racing to the finish to sneak victory in a time of 36.997. The roar in the Velodrome matched the decibel count reached a month ago as she secured her second gold of the Paralympics, and the Storey family's second gold of the day.
British success continued, albeit in less illustrious tones. Jody Cundy, sufficiently cooled after his outburst on Friday, secured bronze in the C4 individual pursuit. He rode emphatically, defeating his opponent before the required laps were completed. It was a small consolation for him, and it showed, but the huge home support were not shy in showing their appreciation for a passionate rider possibly completing his last Paralympics.
If there was to be something that resembled British disappointment, it was that Jon-Allan Butterworth ended up with silver in the C5 individual pursuit. He started so well and had the crowd on the edge of their seats as he carved a second plus lead over Michael Gallagher. But the Australian rode a brilliant final third of the race and reeled the Briton in to take gold. Butterworth now as two silvers in this, his first Paralympic Games.
Yet this afternoon was all about Sarah. The home support has seen their heroine do it again, taking her overall Paralympic career medal haul to an astonishing total of 20 - including nine golds.
Logos change, yet success remains. The five rings may have been replaced by Agitos, yet British dreams of gold continue to be made real at the Velodrome.
Legacy is a funny thing.
