The team



Liam Killeen   Liam Killeen

Liam ‘Killah’ Killeen used to race motorcross as a Junior before taking up mountain bike racing aged 12. He finished a very respectable fifth in the Athens Olympic Games 2004, and this was followed up two years later in the 2006 Commonwealth Games with a gold medal in the same discipline.

In the Beijing Olympics Liam suffered an early drama when, just 150 metres in, he collided with a course marker, falling heavily and picking up a badly grazed knee. Liam put himself back on the bike and worked his way through the pack to finish seventh overall.

Annie Last deferred her place in medical school to join British Cycling’s Olympic Academy Programme in 2009 and has gone on to become Britain's best female cross country mountain biker in a decade.
