Katy Marchant

Katy Marchant produced a superb ride to take silver in the women’s keirin on the final day of Track World Cup action in New Zealand back in January. Marchant, an individual sprint bronze medallist from Rio 2016, kicked on with her trademark acceleration to force her way onto the podium in a typically frenetic final. The 26-year-old former Brigshaw High School pupil finished just 0.004 seconds behind Hong Kong’s Wai Sze Lee and now turns her attention to selection for Team GB’s all-conquering Olympic track cycling team in Tokyo.
