Video: Sir Chris Hoy on retirement

The Olympic cycling legend on leaving the velodrome for good

It’s no secret that Chris Hoy is launching a road range, HOY Bikes, in conjunction with Evans Cycles. He visited the BikeRadar offices recently, to show us the range-topping Sa Colobra, and we took the chance to speak to him about his medal-strewn career as a track cyclist.


In the first video in our five-part series, Hoy discussed life as a pro athlete. In this second instalment, the 37-year-old Scot talks about retiring, covering the timing and reasons behind the decision and explaining what he misses most about the routine.
