It was nice to officially ‘get the nod’ for Team GB’ today!! It’s not something I’ve taken for granted but also not something I’ve been thinking about either. We, the team pursuit squad, have simply been concentrating on our plan set out since November.
It’s very exciting now, as we enter our ‘final phase’ of preparation. There has been a lot of talk about the London Games over the last few years. I just can’t wait to get racing now! Bring it on!
Here is the full list of riders:
Selections for Great Britain’s Olympic cycling team for London 2012 have been confirmed by the British Olympic Association, with 18 athletes officially named to represent Team GB.
