Four-time Olympic champion Laura Kenny believes that Great Britain can overcome a disappointing UCI Track World Championships and win medals at next year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo – but has also warned that there is no room for complacency.
Kenny helped Great Britain win silver behind Australia in the team pursuit – one of just four medals won by the country in Pruszkow – but pulled out of the omnium due to illness.
She told Reuters: "I don't think there is anything dramatic that we should be worrying about, or changing now, it's just about moving forward as a team.
"Having said that we can't be complacent. We can't be like, 'Oh well every time we go to the Olympics it comes together' because it's not as simple as that.
"The team has changed massively this time, not just with the riders but with the whole set-up, and there are lots of different people in different roles."
"Everyone has to come together, that's what has always happened.
"If we can do that the results will start coming again. In 2015 the worlds weren't great but we were back on top in Rio. So let's not throw everything out of the window."
The 26-year-old, whose husband Jason Kenny has six Olympic gold medals, putting him level with Sir Chris Hoy, also revealed that motherhood had changed her perspective on life.
"I was sad [at having to withdraw from the event] but Albie is my world now whereas pre-2017 I would say cycling was everything,” she said.
“I cycle now for Albie and want him to have the experiences of going around the world watching me, but I don't get completely wrapped up in it the same way."

Chapeau for the research! FWIW Sheldon Brown also has some thoughts on this subject.
