Track cyclists Jack Bobridge, Rohan Dennis, Glenn O'Shea and Alex Edmondson have a slight rivalry between their team and the UK's team, as they were sadly beaten in the April World Championships in Melbourne this year. An exciting race is sure to take place.

The athletes train long and hard to reach their goals and qualify for the Olympics, and their efforts will surely be rewarded come the 2012 Olympic Games in London, 27 July – 12 August.

Keep your eyes out for the fresh Aussie talent making their Olympic debut.
