Maddie Leech does not come from a cycling background but watching Laura Kenny, Katie Archibald and company at Rio 2016 inspired her to get on a bike.
She has not looked back since, joining Huddersfield Star Wheelers and graduating from the same 'Go-Ride' programme which counts Kenny among its glittering alumni.
Earlier this year, the master and the apprentice joined forces as Leech and Kenny teamed up in the madison at the UCI Track Nations Cup in Glasgow.
The pair crashed out on that occasion but Leech is no stranger to success on the big stage, having been part of winning teams in the European Junior Championship team pursuit and World Junior Championship road race.
