Great Britain Cycling Team roster


British Cycling has today confirmed the Olympic and Paralympic programme riders who will receive funding to represent Great Britain during the 2013 funding year.

Performance Director Dave Brailsford said: “Following another successful Olympic year, the management and coaches are keen for the momentum to continue as our focus switches towards Rio 2016.

“We continue with a strong squad of podium riders, all of whom we believe have medal potential for 2016. It’s exciting to see Becky James progress on to the final stage of the performance pathway and fill the big gap that Victoria Pendleton left when she retired. Professional road riders Josh Edmondson, Lucy Martin and Katie Colclough are also included on the 2013 Olympic Podium Programme.

"Following another successful Olympic year, the management and coaches are keen for the momentum to continue as our focus switches towards Rio 2016."

Performance Director Dave Brailsford 

“This year, we are able to re-introduce the women’s endurance academy as the young duo of Lucy Garner and Amy Roberts move up from the Olympic Development Programme.

“These girls are all signed with road teams, but show exceptional talent on the track with Elinor Barker already stepping up and winning a gold medal in the team pursuit at the world championships in Minsk which puts her straight onto podium level funding, so it’s great that they can continue their development on the British Cycling pathways.

“We also welcome new recruits on to the sprint, men’s endurance and mountain bike academy programmes. This puts us in a very strong position in the first year of the Olympic cycle as we have this depth of talent which we can develop towards Rio.

“It’s great to see the ODP squad high in numbers again, with plans for a new Paralympic ODP squad taking shape. We have some real young talent in there across the board, for example we have a world BMX champion in Quillan Isidore and Tao Geoghegan Hart showing real talent out on the road.

“The Paracycling squad is also looking good for 2013, with the podium programme now comprising of long-standing athletes such as Dame Sarah Storey and Jody Cundy and new athletes such as Mark Colbourne who made a fantastic Paralympic debut after less than 18 months training with the squad.

"It’s good to see former Academy sprint cyclist Pete Mitchell make the switch to tandem pilot and I’m looking forward to seeing how he develops over the next couple of years.

“Overall, I think we’re in a good place on the pathway to Rio.”
