Inside The Medal Factory at British Cycling

British Cycling London

If you missed 'Inside the Medal Factory' on the BBC this week then give it a watch on iPlayer. It takes a behind-the-scenes look at the phenomenal rise of British Cycling.

Peter Keen features heavily as the man who had the vision to take what were, at the time, outrageously ambitious targets and turn them into a reality with the help of National Lottery funding and a team of highly talented individuals. From Sydney in 2000 to Athens in 2004 and then onto the quite unbelievable success in Beijing 2008 and London 2012 you get a real sense of the marginal gains philosophy that built through this period.

Here at Wattbike we're really proud to have played a part in the success of British Cycling. Developed in association with British Cycling, the Wattbike remains the only indoor bike to ever be endorsed by the world's premier cycling governing body.

Check out the video below for an in-depth interview with Peter Keen about the development of the Wattbike with British Cycling.
