On the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

“Free McDonald’s – but only after competition has finished. Then for breakfast, lunch and dinner!” “I think the Rio 2016 Olympic Games will be a great show – its going to be massive. Hopefully I’ll be able to compete in my events and I’ll be going for gold again.”
Laura Trott
I never thought I would be a professional cyclist. I just did it for the sheer enjoyment. But when you start to win races, you start to wonder how far you can go.
