About Matt

Specialising in sprint events, Matt has represented Great Britain in the sprint, team sprint, keirin and kilo events on the world stage at junior, under-23 and now senior level.

Matt’s career took off in 2004 when he won two gold medals in the UEC Junior European Track Championships in the sprint and keirin. In the same year, he took silver in the keirin at the Youth Commonwealth Games in Australia.

In 2006, he represented England in the Commonwealth Games, this time at senior level. Here he took silver in the team sprint, alongside his established teammates Jamie Staff and Jason Queally.

In 2011 saw Matt win the gold medal in the keirin at the UEC Track Cycling European Championships, as well as winning the bronze medal in the team sprint at the World Championships. Matt went on to win the bronze medal in the 2012 European Track Championships alongside youngsters Callum Skinner and Lewis Oliva.

At the UCI Track World Cup in Manchester in November 2013, Matt replaced Kian Emadi as man three in the team sprint ride for bronze, which he (with Jason Kenny and Phil Hindes) went on to win.

The same line-up was used in the second round of the world cup in Mexico, this time with Matt, Jason and Phil winning the silver medal behind Germany. On the final day of competition, Matt made his way through the keirin rounds to the finals, where he won the gold medal.
