National champion, world champion, Olympic champion; there’s very little Dani King hasn’t achieved on the track, all by the age of just 24.

Another success story of the British Cycling academy system, King, who grew up in Eastleigh, Hampshire, took her first world championship win in the team pursuit in 2011, donning her first rainbow bands at 20-years-old.

A second world championship followed in 2012, along with the coveted Olympic gold medal she won alongside GB teammates Laura Trott and Joanna Rowsell at the London Games.

Having ridden on the road with team Wiggle-Honda since 2013, King hit a major setback in November 2014 after suffering a punctured lung and five broken ribs in a training ride crash after hitting a hidden pothole.

The incident came shortly after King made public her desire to focus on road racing in 2015, and she was able to recover in time to compete in much of the season, including the Women’s Tour and the World Championships team time trial. King wasn’t selected as part of Lizzie Armitstead’s victorious GB team in the Worlds road race.
