British Cycling team 'ready to step up' for London 2012

We have selected what I believe to be an excellent team going into an Olympic Games and we have a good mix of experienced Olympians alongside young riders who are making their Olympic debut.

We still have some decisions to make, for example, the road teams will be refined in due course and who will ride in what event on the track will be determined nearer the time.

Overall, though, the GB Cycling Team has had a strong season across all the disciplines and we are ready to step up again at the Olympics.

British Cycling has refused to speculate on the possibility that David Millar will be a part of the Olympic cycling team, following the CAS ruling against a lifetime drugs ban.

A spokesperson for British Cycling said: "Our team for the Games is being selected in June and across all disciplines we'll pick the team based on which riders are fit and available, and who we believe have the best chance to deliver medals."
