Image for Victoria Pendleton: Cycling's Golden GirlNot currently available on BBC iPlayer

Duration: 1 hour

Victoria Pendleton is the most compelling sportswoman in Britain. As brutally honest and revelatory on camera as she is driven and competitive when flying around a steeply banked bowl of a cycling track, Pendleton offers a rare insight into the way an otherwise ordinary life has been consumed by the sacrifice and intensity required to win an Olympic event.

The 30 year-old sprint cyclist is already an Olympic champion, having won gold in Beijing in 2008, but in Victoria Pendleton: Cycling's Golden Girl she takes us on a bruising and intimate personal journey.
