Both sides have a long history in aerodynamic testing. Cervélo brings considerable experience in design and development, whereas British Cycling fully understands their athletes and what they need to succeed at the highest levels of the sport.
The partnership has already paid dividends in competition, with the GBCT earning 12 medals, including four golds, at the 2015 UEC Under-23 and Junior European Track Championships in Athens. Then Sir Bradley Wiggins took the Revolution Cycling Series by storm on a Cervélo T4 — further cementing his status as a household name — and Callum Skinner and Katie Archibald did likewise at the Dudenhofen Grand Prix in Germany.
Now, both Cervélo and British Cycling aim to build on the team’s stunning success at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics with even more medals in Rio and Tokyo.
