An adept motivational speaker, a professional racing cyclist, and an Olympic gold medallist, Geraint Thomas MBE understands what it takes to make it to the top.

He is one of Britain’s most successful cyclists and a double Olympic champion as part of Great Britain’s winning team pursuit quartet in both Beijing 2008 and London 2012.

At Team Sky - a British professional cycling team - Geraint has proven himself to be an athlete of many talents, excelling at cobbled Classics, short stage races and as a super domestique in Grand Tours.

Welsh-born, Geraint 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. He began competing at World Cup events around the world but, while he was training in Sydney, he experienced a serious injury causing his spleen to be removed. Despite the setback, he recovered and continued to cycle.

He turned professional on the road with the South African Barloworld team in 2007, where he rode and finished his first Tour de France. Finishing 104th, he was the first Welsh rider in the competition since 1967.

He participated in the Beijing Olympics in 2008, where he achieved a Gold medal in the team pursuit and broke two world records. A year later he received an MBE in the 2009 New Year’s Honours List and was runner-up to Ryan Giggs in Welsh Sports Personality of the Year.

In 2010, Geraint began cycling for Team Sky, won the team time trial in Qatar, and came first in the National Road Race.

In order to focus all his attention on the London Olympics in 2012, Geraint opted out of the Tour and the Classics – a dedication that paid off when the team beat the world record they had set in the world championships team pursuit to gain an Olympic Gold medal.

Sky’s confidence in Geraint’s leadership ability was cemented with a landmark win in Paris-Nice 2016, where he finished four seconds ahead of Alberto Contador. The same year, he also came 9th in the Rio Olympic Games’ time trial, having been handed a last-minute spot following withdrawals.

Geraint has experienced first-hand what it takes to be the best in his field and the importance of hard work. His story is motivational and allows corporate audiences to understand how skills such as teamwork, leadership and determination can be used to improve company standards.
