Pendleton plans to 'go even faster'

Victoria Pendleton believes she and women's team sprint partner Jess Varnish can go "even faster" than their world record set at the World Cup in London in February at the forthcoming World Track Cycling Championships in Melbourne's Hisense Arena.

Pendleton, who has admitted her relationship with a member of the GB coaching team had created friction with team-mates, is wary of the threat posed by Australia's Anna Meares in the sprint and keirin disciplines, having been beaten by her in London.

Despite her desire to win, Pendleton, who defeated Meares in the final of the women's sprint to take Olympic gold in Beijing four years ago, says her focus is to "peak in August" in time for the Olympic Games.
