T&T Tubecraft Ltd. were instructed by British Cycling to produce the aero bars extensions for the Team Pursuit bikes for the Team GB bikes for the 2016 Olympic Games held in Rio de Janeiro. Each rider had a unique design as it suited their own body position on the bike, this of course was critical as it ensured they were able to perform to their highest ability. This of course was evident in the results the team were able to achieve in the velodrome. As well as securing the men’s gold medal, Team GB were also in successful in beating their own World Record, in a time of 3:50.265, some three tenths of a second quicker than the previous record, which coincidently was set by the team in their qualification round on the same day. The record has been held by Team GB since March 2008 when they became the World Champions.
The women also produced some magnificent riding, which saw the world record beaten 3 times in 1 day, twice by Team GB. The women’s team set their fastest time in 4:10.236, nearly 2 seconds quicker than their time set early that day. The women have held the record nine times since September 2013.
T&T Tubecraft Ltd. were able to respond to the customers tight tolerances and urgent deadlines by using the latest CNC mandrel bending machines and CMM tube inspecting machines, both of which ensured the customer received what they wanted when they wanted.
