Lizzie Armitstead, the first home medallist of London 2012, is keen to bid for a road and track double at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics of 2016.
The 24-year-old from Otley still reflects on the sprint in teeming rain down The Mall, when prolific champion Marianne Vos of Holland beat her to Olympic gold by a narrow margin.
Armitstead, who in 2009 won team pursuit gold at the Track Cycling World Championships, had to choose between the velodrome and the road for London 2012.
In Rio, there is the possibility she could do both, but there are a number of hurdles to overcome.
The International Olympic Committee will in September decide whether to return the points race to the Olympic programme at the International Cycling Union's request.
If that happens, then the criteria must be decided and it may be that the points racer also has to compete in the team pursuit.
The devotion required for the team discipline means it would be impossible to also ride in the road race.
Armitstead would like to explore the possibility of a points-road race double, though.
Armitstead may get the chance to prove she can do both at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
The Commonwealth Games, in which she won road race silver in Delhi in 2010, is in her mind this season, with the British Championships in Glasgow in June one of her targets, along with September's Road World Championships in Florence, Italy.
Armitstead is keen to exchange her Boels Dolmans Cycling Team jersey for the British champion's white jersey with red and blue bands; a rainbow jersey could follow in September.
Armitstead was speaking on a rare trip home to Yorkshire, which will host the start of the 2014 Tour de France next summer.
The Leeds start - and the Giro d'Italia start in Belfast - capitalises on the interest generated in cycling, in many ways by the likes of Armitstead, who has noticed a growth in the sport.
It is not the only change in Armitstead's life. She and boyfriend Adam Blythe, who is currently riding the Giro with BMC Racing, now have a European base in Monaco. Formula One driver Jenson Button, an avid triathlete, is among those who joins them for training rides in the hills above the Principality.
Armitstead likes Monaco for the lifestyle as a bike rider, rather than the glamour.
