Britain's under-23 road team starts the first of three key races this weekend - the seven-stage Tour de l'Avenir. That's followed shortly after by the Tour of Britain and the road world championships. We asked Great Britain under-23 manager Keith Lambert how his young squad was shaping up.

It sounds simple, but isn't.
