Triple Olympic Champion, Cyclist for Team GB and Vitus Pro Cycling


25 January 2013A Day in the Life

Cycling Weekly spent a day with Ed Clancy and the rest of the British team pursuit riders during their January training camp in Majorca last year.

We watched them eat, train, and then eat some more, gaining a valuable insight into how hard they work.

The day we spent with the six riders was day one of a three-day block that was repeated after a rest day on the fourth day. Day two consisted of two road rides (both around two hours), one of which was on time trial bikes, while day three was one long ride with big hills. 

After the two three-day blocks they flew back to the UK to continue training on the Manchester track in the build-up to the London round of the World Cup. 

The rest of the team is Peter Kennaugh, Ben Swift, Sam Harrison, Steven Burke, Andy Tennant. The other member of the team pursuit squad, Geraint Thomas, was racing in Australia at the time.
