Craig MacLean leads team sprint track

Great Britain came away from the Copenhagen Track World Cup at the weekend without a medal in the Team Sprint, a result which British Cycling isn?t taking too seriously as they fielded experimental combinations for the GB and Science in Sport squads.

The results have only increased the pressure for the first man selection event which takes place at Revolution on Saturday February 23. The event will see Jamie Staff, Jason Kenny and Craig MacLean simulate a standing start Team Sprint riding a two man 500m time trial. The British Cycling management are using the event as a crucial factor in selecting the lead out man for the Team Sprint at the Worlds.
