British Cycling has announced the 25 riders for its 2010/11 Olympic Academy Programme.
Among this year’s intake are Commonwealth Games medalists David Daniell, silver medalist in the Keirin, and Becky James, sprint silver medalist and time trial bronze medalist.
“Our under-23 squad continues to strengthen and this year Alex Dowsett and Lucy Martin have both been signed up to professional road teams for next season,” said performance manager Shane Sutton.
“We’ve also got an interesting situation on the women’s endurance programme with all the girls now being focused on the endurance track events rather than the road.
“The three academy girls will be coached by Paul Manning, with Simon Cope becoming more involved in the training programme for our women’s podium endurance athletes and also working closely with the Olympic Development Programme female endurance riders in bringing them up to the high standard of performance that the academy requires.”
