Cycling from when he was just 10 years old, Geraint Thomas MBE went on to win various national championships racing as an Under-14 and Under-16 competitor. He is now a hugely popular Olympic speaker.

Geraint started his winning ways in 2004 when he came first in the Junior World Championships and the extremely challenging Paris-Roubaix (in the same year in the BBC Wales Sports Personality of the Year he also won the Carwyn James Junior Award).

After joining the British Olympic Academy for Under 23s, Thomas went professional in 2007 and became the youngest rider in the Tour de France (and the only Welsh rider since 1967). Just a year later, the Olympic speaker won a gold medal at the Beijing Olympics, breaking the world record twice. Another year later and Geraint was given an MBE and achieved the fastest time in the 4km individual pursuit in the Manchester World Cup, where he won another gold medal.

At the 2012 Olympics in the team pursuit, Geraint helped to set a new world record and win yet another gold medal. To his credit, Thomas has been involved in the five fastest team pursuit times ever achieved.
