Biography

www.geraintthomas.com

Along with Ed Clancy and Steven Burke, Welshman Geraint Thomas, MBE, is a surviving member of the 2008 endurance squad, having won team pursuit gold in Beijing.

‘G’ won three world titles in the build-up to Bejiing 2008, but following an appearance at the Manchester World Cup in 2009, he focused his attentions more on the road.

Previously, he had successfully completed his first Tour de France in 2007 and after signing for Team Sky, he made a significant impression on the 2010 Tour.

Thomas racked up several top-ten stage finishes and wore the prestigious young rider’s jersey from stages three to seven.

At the 2011 Tour de France, Thomas finished sixth in the first stage to earn the white jersey, which he held until stage seven. He also won the combativity award on stage 12 for a memorable breakaway as the race entered the Pyrenees, ending up 31st overall.

He also helped Mark Cavendish win the world road race title in 2011 before revealing he would be focusing on the track in 2012.

At the World Championships, he was part of the British team pursuit quartet that won gold – their first since 2008 – and set a new world record in the process.

At the 2012 Olympics in London, Thomas won gold in cycling track, team pursuit with partners Ed Clancy, Steven Burke and Peter Kennaugh.
