London, Aug 8(ANI): Dave Brailsford, Team GB's cycling coach has revealed that the secret to their immense success was peaking at the right time, talented athletes, commitment and brilliant coaching.
We start by analysing the demands of the event we want to win. We then prioritise. Then we look at the gap between where we are and where we want to be and how we can get there, The Independent quoted Brailsford, as saying.
If you break down everything that you need and improve every little aspect by one per cent then that can make a difference. Some things are essential - fitness, biomechanics - others are less essential but can make the difference such as posture when you sleep, using the right kind of pillow, he added.
Hygiene is extremely important because you are going to get ill a little bit less. If you put all these little things together, you are going to improve, he said.
Earlier, the French cycling team had pointed finger at Team GB after they dominated the cycling events during the London Games, saying they are doubtful about the kit and wheels being used by the Brit cyclists.
The accusation came after Brailsford almost sparked a row with his zestful comment that they were using 'special round wheels'.
French cycling performance director Isabelle Gautheron said she had 'a lot of questions' about Team GB, and suggested they were using 'magic wheels', which are quickly concealed after every race. (ANI)
