Procycling - - Dan Mclay -

As the 2010 ju­nior madi­son world cham­pion with Si­mon Yates, McLay’s no stranger to the track. But as he’s fo­cused on the road he’s spent less time in the velo­drome – un­til this win­ter when he joined the Great Bri­tain team pur­suit squad for al­most a month. He ex­plains that it was partly to help him im­prove his strength and try to reap some of the same bene its that helped Mark Cavendish re­gain his sprint form in 2016, but also be­cause he may try to make the Team GB Olympic squad.

“It wasn’t with that much pre­plan­ning, but it’s in­ter­est­ing look­ing down the line to the changes in the om­nium and the chances of the madi­son be­ing back in, so I may look at do­ing one or two things dur­ing the sum­mer and do­ing a bit more next win­ter and see­ing how that pans out.

“I would love to ride the Om­nium at the Tokyo Olympics but I’ve not spo­ken to any­one about it yet. Just see­ing Cav and Vi­viani and Gaviria man­ag­ing to com­bine a proper road sea­son and the Games… it’s de initely doable.”
