The inner workings of British Cycling will be examined in a BBC documentary to be broadcast on Sunday, which promises to reveal how the organisation has delivered so many medals, and also question at what cost those medals have been won.

The documentary, entitled Britain's Cycling Superheroes: The Price of Success?, will be broadcast on BBC Two on Sunday, November 19, and promises exclusive interviews with key figures in the British Cycling story, including former performance director Dave Brailsford and former technical director Shane Sutton.
