Geraint Thomas is a cornerstone of Team Sky, leading them in the spring classics and playing an integral role in their Tour team. Thomas is also a double Olympic champion as part of Great Britain’s winning team pursuit quartet in both Beijing 2008 and London 2012.

The Welshman picked up cycling with the Maindy Flyers in Wales; taking the club’s newcomers’ track record was an inspiration to continue, which he did racing across the country with the club. After winning two national titles as a teenager, Thomas progressed rapidly going on to silver in the points race at the European track championships.

The Welshman joined the British Cycling Olympic Academy in 2005, after impressing many with his 2004 Junior Paris-Roubaix win riding for the South East centre of excellence.

Thomas turned professional on the road with the Barloworld team in 2007, where he rode and finished his first Tour de France.
