The year 2016 was a particular success, with Team GB topping the medal table with five golds, one silver and three bronzes.
Following the Olympic year, 2017 was a little quieter – with five medals in total – two gold and silver and one bronze each. This wasn’t unexpected – with many of the household names either retired (Bradley Wiggins, Joanna Rowsell-Shand), shifting their attention to the road (Mark Cavendish, Owain Doull) or expecting a baby (Laura and Jason Kenny).
For 2017, the squad appears to have renewed energy – with the Kenny’s returning and new blood in the form of the Team KGF riders.
