A successful British Cycling team

With the huge success of Cycling at the recent event in London I thought it might be a good idea to highlight the British team involved.

As a team we won more golds and more medals overall that all the other teams involved.  Agreat weekend of Cycling as feast of what is to come at the Worlds and Olympics.  The scary thing is thats just the track stuff, with Cav and Wiggo doing the business on the road as well as the whole of the Sky team looking to clean up we are in for what promises to be the single most succesful year for British,  cycling.

British Cycling performance director Dave Brailsford believes his Olympic hopefuls are coming into form at the right time ahead of the London Games.

Brailsford was left hugely satisfied after an impressive performance from Britain in the Track Cycling World Cup at the Olympic Velodrome in London.
Britain won seven medals from 10 Olympic events - four gold, one silver and two bronze - plus Joanna Rowsell's gold in the non-Olympic individual pursuit.
And Brailsford, who masterminded Britain's haul of seven gold medals on the track in Beijing four years ago, feels his riders have made some important strides in their preparations for London 2012.
"This is the best performance across the board for a good couple of years," he said.
"It shows we're building momentum, we're heading in the right direction and hopefully we've got our timing right.

Come On Britain - Rule the Roads!!
