Racing for Halfords Bikehut at home and as team Great Britain abroad, an exciting year beckons for team leader Nicole Cooke.

GB Women?s team leader Cooke is getting to grips with her newest machine.

She is proudly displaying her Boardman special, which is the weapon of choice for the new GB Women?s team.

With ?08 being Olympic year, it will be a coup for Halfords and Boardman if Cooke can get on the podium this summer.

Chris Boardman says it?s better than the first bike he rode the Tour on; praise indeed.
