Today we speak to Olympic silver medallist, Emma Pooley, about her move to the new Cervelo Test Team, and her goals for this season and beyond. Pooley's performance in the 2007 World Championships, where she finished 9th in the road race and 8th in the time trial helped Team GB secure it place in the Olympic road race and time trial the following year.
She enjoyed a good season last year but the high point was at the Olympics with Team GB. Emma's efforts in the road race were in support of Nicole Cooke's successful bid for the gold, she really went for it in the time trial to pick up silver behind Karin Armstrong of the UK. Armstrong is now her team mate at Cervelo.
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
