Geraint Thomas made his Olympic debut in Beijing, winning gold in the men’s team pursuit before defending the title four years later at London 2012.
Also on the track, Thomas won World Championship gold in the team pursuit in both 2007 and 2008, before adding a third title in 2012.
At the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, he won road race gold and time trial bronze, and finished ninth in the latter event at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
In 2017, he won team time trial bronze at the Road World Championships, having earlier become the first Welsh rider to wear the Tour de France yellow jersey and the first Brit to win the Tour of the Alps.
And a year later Thomas returned to the world’s most famous cycling race with many predicting that he would once again help to facilitate compatriot Chris Froome’s fourth consecutive tour win.
But it was Thomas who claimed victory, leading the general classification from stage 11 all the way to the Champs-Elysees, becoming only the third ever Brit to win the Tour de France.
