British Cycling confirms GB cycling squads for 2013/2014

Sir Dave Brailsford has declared that the Great Britain cycling team is “in good shape for this stage of the Olympic cycle” following the release of the national squad for the forthcoming year.

Five new British world champions – Becky James, Liam Phillips, Lora Turnham (piloted by Corinne Hall), Elinor Barker and Simon Yates – were crowned in 2013, and Brailsford says that progress is being made on the road to Rio 2016.

“In line with the UK Sport funding structure, we have reviewed the British Cycling’s Olympic Programmes, and I believe we have a strong squad to take us into the second year of this Olympic cycle,” he said.

“In all, I think we’re looking to be in good shape for this stage of the Olympic cycle. We have a real depth of talent in the Academy and Development Programme and I’m looking forward to seeing how they can develop and deliver over the coming twelve months.”

New features of the squad include a Paralympic Development Programme, which BC say will help produce the next generation of para-cycling champions.

Elsewhere, former hepthathlete turned sprinter Katy Marchant joins the British Cycling Olympic Podium Programme while Ross Edgar has switched from the sprint to endurance programme.

Double junior world champion Danni Khan steps up to the Podium Programme sprint squad from the Academy, and Germain Burton, Chris Lawless, Jake Ragan and Ollie Wood make the transition from BC’s Olympic Development Programme to the Academy. Former GB women’s coach Simon Cope returns to oversee the track side of this programme, and Keith Lambert will continue to lead the coaching on the road.
