British Cycling has unveiled its new 'Best of British' track bike, to be used at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

Built by British brands Lotus and components manufacturer Hope Technology, with the help of engineering brand Renishaw, the new bike is a nod to that ridden by Chris Boardman when he won Olympic gold in Barcelona in 1992.

The bike was partly built in various locations across Britain, with wind tunnel testing taking place in Southampton and production and further refinement in Gloucestershire, East Anglia and Lancashire. Meanwhile, British riders have begun testing the bike at the HSBC UK National Cycling Centre in Manchester.
