British Cycling will receive £35 million funding for the 2024 Paris Olympics, nearly £10 million more than it received for the Tokyo cycle.

The governing body announced they were getting £35,429,000 for the Great Britain Cycling Team to aim for continued success at the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and that it was "grateful" for the funding "in what has been a difficult year for everybody".

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
