Sir Dave Brailsford, the mastermind behind Team GB cycling success at the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics, is set to leave his job as performance director at British Cycling.

Brailsford first joined British Cycling in 1998 and became the organisation's performance director in 2003.

He was instrumental in delivering an unprecedented medal overhaul - 16 Olympic golds, six silver medals and four bronzes - from the last two Olympic Games.

He is stepping down to concentrate on his duties of running Team Sky, the men's professional offshoot of the Olympic squad, which has won the last two Tours de France with Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome.

British Cycling CEO Ian Drake said: "Firstly, I want to thank Sir Dave Brailsford for his enormous contribution to British Cycling - the organisation he leaves behind is transformed from the one we both joined in 1998.

"In that time the Great Britain Cycling Team has not only set the standard by which British sporting success is judged but also inspired millions of people to get active through cycling."
