Liam Killeen is one of a select few Team GB athletes in action on Sunday and he has Olympic pedigree, riding in Athens and in Beijing. A gold medal doesn’t look on the cards but the 2006 Commonwealth champion could spring an upset on home soil. He is Britain’s best mountain biker and came closest to winning a medal in 2008, coming fourth in the Mountain Bike Cross Country World Championships.
