Following his dominant performance at the Manchester Track World Cup, Bradley Wiggins is supremely confident of his Great Britain team's chances at the World Track Championships starting on Thursday. "We've been hitting the numbers in the team pursuit and I can't see us being beat," Wiggins told britishcycling.org.uk. The Olympic Pursuit Champion is undoubtedly one of the outstanding favourites for individual pursuit gold and is expected to lead Great Britain in the team event, although the line-ups have not been confirmed yet.
"We can approach the Palma World Championship in the full knowledge that we are exactly where we want to be at this point prior to the Beijing Olympics," said GB Performance Director Dave Brailsford. "In the team pursuit for example, we were looking to go sub four minutes at this point in the Olympic cycle and we did that at Manchester (during the World Cup)."
Team pursuit qualification kicks off on Friday morning at the newly constructed Palma Arena. The finals will be held that same evening.
