He’s also working with a team who specialise in aerodynamics, to improve his position on the bike.

And the changes he’s made are seeing big improvements.

But gone are the days of being a well looked after Olympic star.

Bond’s hired a transit van and is driving himself all over the UK.

Fortunately his old UK rowing mates have offered couches and a spare bed for his long limbs.
