British Cycling's Road To 2012

In British Cycling's "Road To 2012" we track the progress of Britain's most successful Olympic sport, from the grassroots to the top step of the podium as the 2012 London Olympic Games approach.

Documenting never-before-seen moments, Road To 2012 will show how British Cycling is combining an unbeatable drive to win gold medals, whilst at the same time encouraging a million more people on to their bikes through Sky Ride.

Looking at the application and selection processes which give access to British Cycling's coveted World Class Performance Programmes and the Great Britain Olympic Team, the Series will feature both established names and future heroes of cycling.

BMX: Olympic Cycling's newest event, BMX captured viewers' imagination for the first time in Beijing 2008.

Mountain Bike: Introduced to the Olympic schedule in 1996, mountain biking's only Olympic event focusses on the cross-country discipline.

Road: Consisting of two seperate events, the road race and the individual time trial, road cycling has a strong tradition of the modern Olympics, having debuted in 1896 and been included in every Games since 1912.

Track: Included in every modern Olympic schedule, London 2012 will host five track cycling in a stunning new velodrome.

Paralympics: Running alongside the Olympic Games, the Paralympics debuted in 1960 for those with a physical disability and features 18 medal events in the velodrome.
