Two-time Olympic gold medallist Phil Hindes has announced his retirement from the British Cycling team after more than a decade as part of the sprint squad according to Reuters
Hindes was instrumental in Britain’s team sprint squad, winning gold in London with Jason Kenny and Chris Hoy and again in Rio four years later with Kenny and Callum Skinner.
“My career highlights have to be my Olympic gold medals from London 2012 and Rio 2016, but also I’ve met some of my best friends on the team, and in cycling in general, so this has been the best bit of my cycling career.”
“Phil can take pride in the fact he was indisputably the fastest man one team sprint rider in the world for a number of years. To sustain this level of power, speed, and fitness for so long is remarkable,” British Cycling performance director Stephen Park said.
