Team GB Cycling

The reason for choosing this subject is because, I have been following the sky cycling team at both the olympics and the Tour de France for the past 4 or 5 years since we started to win major events.

What you normally see in the events is the riders during the race and not what really goes on behind the scenes unless it is a specifically requested for a documentary. The fact that award winning photographer Tom Jenkins has been given this rare insight into training is well come.

This fly on the wall documentary shows just how much work that the riders have to put in to attain the level of fitness and how the team is structured including what sessions they have to do during the boot camps and the training on track using the motorcycle for omnium.

this is an incredible insight into one of the worlds greatest cycling teams of the past few years and the riders they have brought through both male and female.

here are some example images from Tom Jenkins photo shoot for the Guardian.
