Ollie was inspired by his dad Alistair to take up cycling, and in 2011 he was accepted onto British Cycling’s Olympic Development Programme.
In 2013, he graduated onto the Academy and at the age of 18 he made his world cup debut when he was selected to ride in Guadalajara, Mexico. At the 2014 UEC Junior and Under-23 European Track Championships in Portugal, Ollie won the silver medal in the under-23 scratch race event.
At the January round of the 2013/14 Revolution Series, Ollie paired up with Olympic champion Ed Clancy to break the one-kilometre Madison time trial record in a time of 54.537 seconds – a record previously held by Sir Chris Hoy and Arnaud Tournant.
Ollie rode in the team pursuit event with his fellow Academy riders at the final round of the 2014/15 World Cup series, clinching the bronze medal which was a promising result for the young squad.
At the 2015 Under-23 European Track Championships, Ollie was crowned as team pursuit champion and he also won the silver medal in the omnium event.
