A word with our Olympic Cyclists
New Zealand had a comprehensive team at this year’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, including a large cycling squad. Amongst the team were official ŠKODA Ambassadors, the Men’s Sprint Team which consisted of Eddie Dawkins, Sam Webster and Ethan Mitchell. Also accompanying them was Canterbury Track Cyclist, Olivia Podmore, who is proudly supported by Miles Continental.
The men’s sprint trio proudly came away from this year’s Olympics with a silver medal after a tight race with Great Britain! While Olivia Podmore didn’t achieve a medal, she came away from the Olympics raving about her amazing experience with the New Zealand team, and pumped for her Tokyo Olympics campaign in 2020.
Now that the team have returned to New Zealand and are having some time out before they focus on their next cycling achievements, we took this as an opportunity to speak to Sam Webster, Ethan Mitchell, and Olivia Podmore to congratulate them for their achievements and ask them for their thoughts on the Rio Olympics!
