Great Britain won seven of the ten track cycling gold medals on offer at the London 2012 Olympic Games, with another silver and bronze to boot – but how close can they get to that incredible haul in Rio?
The track cycling action starts on Thursday night (August 11) in the brand new Velodromo Municipal do Rio, with the men’s and women’s team pursuit qualifying getting underway, and the men’s team sprint offering the first track cycling medals of the 2016 Games.
Sir Bradley Wiggins, Jason Kenny, Ed Clancy and Laura Trott will then all be looking to add to their Olympic medal hauls through the days to come.
Wiggins stands to become Britain’s first Olympian to win eight medals, Clancy bids to become the first cyclist ever to win three back-to-back team pursuit gold medals and Trott is hoping to be the first British woman to win three Olympic golds.
We’ve taken a closer look at their chances and gazed into the crystal ball to find out how the British track squad will fare in Rio.
