Nine world titles, two Olympic golds and a silver earned former British track cyclist Victoria Pendleton the nickname ‘Queen Victoria’.

Victoria dominated the individual pursuit competition form 2005 – 2012. She said she started cycling the same time she learned to walk because her father was a keen cyclist. For her 30th birthday she got a tattoo on her right wrist that reads “Today is the greatest day I’ve ever known” – a lyric by the Smashing Pumpkins
