BC Press Release
British Cycling’s two-time Olympic gold medallist Phil Hindes is set to return to track racing in Great Britain Cycling Team colours at the Track Cycling Challenge in Grenchen, Switzerland, from 2 – 3 December. From there, he will contest the Six Day Amsterdam event from 6 – 11 December.
Phil will be joined in Grenchen by world cup gold medallists Kian Emadi, Ollie Wood, Ellie Dickenson, Manon Lloyd and Emily Nelson and their fellow senior academy riders Angus Claxton, Ethan Hayter, Joe Holt and Matt Walls. At the Amsterdam Six Day, Matt Bostock and Joe Holt will pair up.
Hindes, who was triumphant in the team sprint at both the London and Rio Olympic Games, raced at the second round of the Revolution event in Glasgow in October and is now hoping to supplement the points he earned by competing at the two forthcoming CL1 events.
Speaking of returning to competition, Phil said: “I’ve enjoyed having some time off after winning my second Olympic gold medal but I’m now looking forward to getting back to cycling. My focus has reset for this season, and I’m aiming to develop my skills in the other sprint disciplines. I can’t wait to get racing again.”
