    Mountain biker Anton Cooper is hopeful familiarity will play into his hands at the Tokyo Olympics


    The 26 year old is one of the final four names added to the Olympic cycling squad.

    Cooper says he was pleasantly surprised by the Tokyo track when he raced on it in a test event in 2019.



    George Bennett and Patrick Bevin will compete on the road, and Rebecca Petch in the BMX.
