Track coach Dyer to leave GB Cycling Team

Iain Dyer, lead track coach for the Great Britain Cycling Team, is to leave British Cycling after 21 years working to support talented riders to achieve their best.

Iain, who joined British Cycling in 2000, has fulfilled a number of roles with the Great Britain Cycling Team, most recently working with the men’s endurance track squad who won Olympic gold in the omnium with Matt Walls, and silver in the Madison with Walls and Ethan Hayter, in Tokyo.

Stephen Park OBE, British Cycling Performance Director, said: “Iain has made a fantastic contribution to British Cycling over many years and has played an important role as the Great Britain Cycling Team developed to become the team which has led the Olympic medal table for the last four Games. His work has always marked him out as someone ready to give their best for the riders and for the Great Britain jersey.

“He leaves with our best wishes for the future and, on behalf of the federation, I would like to thank him for the service he has given to our sport and some of our most talented bike riders over the last 21 years. I would also like to thank him personally for his dedication and hard work in my time as performance director.”

Dyer said: “With the Tokyo Games and the more recent European and world track championships bringing an end to this Olympic cycle, it’s a good opportunity for me to press pause and give some time back to my family and look ahead to fresh challenges.

“After 21 hugely successful and rewarding years at British Cycling, I’ll take away many cherished memories of our time together and I know I leave the men’s track endurance programme in a great position for the future. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all my colleagues and athletes I have worked with past and present and wish the team all the best ahead of the Paris Olympic and Paralympic cycle.”
