Dave Brailsford, Performance Director for British Cycling, and esteemed motivational speaker, is one of a group of driven and inspirational figures working to make London’s Olympic dream a reality.
Dave holds the fundamental belief that that people achieve excellence when they have certain elements in place, most importantly ownership of their training programmes. He also believes that every athlete needs support in certain important areas, including nutrition, physical fitness, strength and conditioning.
“My responsibility is about ensuring that we’re doing absolutely everything we can with the resources available to help support every single rider to be at their absolute best for 2012,” he told BA Business magazine.
“The whole thing is a brilliant, broad-ranging challenge, with aims of winning the Olympic Games and the Tour de France, and also increasing the number of people who cycle in the UK.”
