Alex Dowsett grew up racing on the very peculiar British time trial scene, an up-bringing that has stood him in good stead for life in the pro ranks. His ability against the clock has brought him a win in the Giro and allowed him to challenge for shorter stage races.

His Commonwealth Games gold medal was a high point this season in which he has been left without a grand tour in his legs. He has recently signed for another three years with the Spanish Movistar team. Dowsett has a passion for fast cars, inspired by his father who was a professional racing driver.
