Ian Bibby Career Profile

Ian Bibby is an ex-mountain biker and national cyclo-cross champion who has recently emerged as an exciting young talent on the national road racing scene.

He originally made his name with a series of mountain biking and cyclo-cross successes at Junior and U23 level. In 2009 he signed for the Halford's team, doing half the year mountain biking and half on the road. Although the road wins were not plentiful that season, it was enough to convince him to devote himself to the road the next year.

2010 was really the year of Bibby's emergence. Riding for Motorpoint Marshall's Pasta, he achieved a series of great results, mixing it with the best of British cycling and winning a couple of Tour Series events.

What is more, despite taking it easy for the 2009/10 cyclo-cross season he won the National Championships in February, albeit helped by perfect conditions and a course that didn't punish his focus on road training.

In 2012, Bibby joined Endura Racing and took part in an extensive Euopean calendar, picking up results at home and abroad, including a stage of the UCI 2.2 Mi-Aout en Bretagne. He then switched to Madison-Genesis for 2013.
