Lucy Martin is the youngest of the women’s road quartet and like Lizzie Armitstead and Emma Pooley, she rides for AA Drink–leontien.nl.
Spotted at the age of 15, she joined British Cycling’s Academy programme soon after. In 2010 she wore the young rider’s jersey in the Trophee d’Or despite riding with a cracked vertebrae when hit by a car in training.
