Victoria Pendleton vows to win gold in Beijing

Victoria Pendleton, the glamorous British track racing phenomenon, has vowed to win gold in this summer’s Olympic games.

Pendleton is probably best-known to mainstream sports fans as the unabashedly beautiful bike racer who posed nude for the Observer Sport Monthly (though truth-be-told, she was wearing a thong which was airbrushed out of the photo). To dyed in the wool track-racing fans, Pendleton is better known for her prowess at the velodrome. A world-champion sprinter with numerous gold medals on her mantle, Pendleton says she would trade all of her prior victories for an Olympic gold medal.

And while the world of elite cycling has been riddled with accusations of doping, Pendleton is candid about her much healthier choice for performance enhancement, “I was recently speaking to someone involved with coaching athletes. He said he knows when his athletes are in a relationship because the guy’s performance goes down and the girl’s performance improves.”

    I’d say, she isn’t even riding a track bike!

    I agree; brake levers…not flattering!
