"And now - it's still the same - I've just got to go out and do my best but there's a bit more pressure there and I really want to make the final.”

Green moved from her home in Cornwall in 2013 to join the British Cycling Olympic Academy Programme which is based in Manchester. She now lives the life of a full time athlete and trains at Manchester's state of the art indoor facility.

Green said: "Moving up here has been a great opportunity for me.

“The benefits of riding this track, day-in, day-out have been really good and I've progressively got quicker and quicker so hopefully the final will be there in my sights by the end of the weekend."

"Being able to train full time on this track and being able to know al the ins-and-outs and the quick parts and where to do what is really good.

"I've been able to learn so much more from being here."

Though she is far from home, Green will have the full support of her family when the event starts on the 18th April as they will be making their way up to Manchester to watch their daughter.

Green said: "My mum and dad are coming up and they're definitely looking forward to  seeing me race.

"I daresay my mum will be hiding behind some sort of mask because she'll be dead scared of me racing but at the end of the day she's there to support me and so is my dad, so it's going to be good to see them there."
