Chris Boardman MBE exploded onto the international cycling scene, and captured the British public's imagination by winning the individual pursuit at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.
Chris went on to win two world titles on the track, three stages of the Tour de France and set numerous world records including the gruelling hour record shortly before his retirement from cycling in 2000.
Chris has always been linked with cutting edge technology and his knowledge and experience became invaluable as he led British Cycling's research and development team in the run up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics, where they became the most successful British sporting team of all time.
Outside of cycling, Chris ran the 2009 London Marathon for the National Autistic Society and launched the 5km Santa Dash on behalf of the Hoylake Cottage community hospital in West Kirby.
Chris is truly an inspirational figure in the history of British sport.
