Boardman, a British sporting legend and cycling trailblazer, first rose to prominence after winning gold in the individual pursuit at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, becoming the first Brit to win a cycling gold medal in 72 years.

He then went on to a successful pro career on the road, winning three stages in the Tour de France, as well as recording the highest ever average speed in a prologue time trial. Outside the Tour, he finished on the podium in Paris-Nice, won the World Time Trial Championship in 1994, and came second in the prestigious Criterium du Dauphine Libere.

Since retirement, he's been British Cycling's head of Research and Development (a post he gave up after the 2012 Olympics) and also become a fixture on ITV's Tour de France coverage.

He's also launched his own range of bikes, and last year, Alistair and Jonny Brownlee rode Boardman AiR 9.8 road bikes to gold and bronze in the Olympic Triathlon, while Pete Jacobs rode the AiR TT 9.8 to victory at Kona.
