Bike NZ trying to hold onto pursuit team

5:45 am on 22 August 2008

Bike NZ could have a job on their hands keeping their pursuit team together now that they've made a name for themselves at the Beijing Olympics.

The quartet won a bronze medal at the Games and they've already gained a reputation as young riders on the way up.

That's likely to attract attention from professional teams and coach Tim Carswell says they've already started putting plans in place to somehow keep them together for 2012.

Carswell's keeping those plans close to his chest, however.
