Former Norwich schoolgirl Emma Pooley won't receive funding from British Cycling next year.
Pooley won silver in the Beijing Olympics road time trial in 2008 and competed at the London games.
Pooley was left off the endurance list after spending 2013 concentrating on completing her PhD.
However, there was better news for female cycling in another part of the region today with Bury St Edmunds confirmed as the final stop for next year's inaugural Women's Tour.
