British Cycling recruits for performance director

British Cycling, with the help of UK Sport, has appointed Positive Dynamics to assist in the recruitment of a performance director for the Great Britain Cycling Team.

Appointing a performance director is part of the strategy laid out in anticipation of the Toyko Olympics in 2020.

The strategy was submitted to UK Sport in February. It will enable the Great Britain Cycling Team to build upon the successes the team enjoyed this year at the Rio Olympic Games, and provide greater support to performance staff and athletes.

This will include an initial scoping exercise followed by an open recruitment process. Further updates will follow in due course. 

Programmes director Andy Harrison, who stepped in to lead the Great Britain Cycling Team for the last phase of the Rio cycle, during which the team achieved their ambition of finishing top of the medal table at the Olympics and Paralympics, will remain in charge until a performance director is appointed.
