Olympic Development Programme intake announced

Track racing dominates British Cycling’s Olympic Development Programme

Two mountain bikers have made the cut for British Cycling’s 2010/11 Olympic Development Programme. 

Grant Ferguson and Katy Winton are among 25 riders to join the ODP, the second step on British Cycling’s pathway to elite success, which aims to develop riders aged 16-18 years to a standard where they will be accepted onto the Olympic Academy Programme.

A host of talented young riders will join an existing core of second year riders who have already enjoyed success on the world stage.

British Cycling’s performance manager Shane Sutton said: “We’ve got 25 riders on this year’s ODP, with a healthy mix across each discipline which means training camps and racing opportunities are optimised.

“We have 18 new recruits, of which 16 have graduated from the Talent Team programme and a significant number of these riders came through the Go-Ride programme.

“This is testament to the success of British Cycling’s development pathway and puts us in good stead for future Olympic Games beyond London 2012.”
