Jeremy Hunt career profile

Jeremy Hunt began his career on the road back in 1996 with the Spanish Banesto team of five-time Tour de France winner, Miguel Indurain.

Hunt rode for several teams over the course of his career including Big Mat, MBK, Unibet and finally Crédit Agricole. Hunt is predominantly a sprinter taking several wins from bunch finishes, but is also a strong classics riders, winning the GP d’Ouverture La Marseillaise.

After a disappointing season with only a stage in the Tour of Langkawi his name, Hunt will be one of a host of British riders heading to the new Cervélo Test Team next season after team manager Roger Legeay failed to secure a replacement for a title sponsor at his French Crédit Agricole squad.

Hunt is a seasoned one-day rider and is a key part of the team’s assault on the spring Classics next season, along with new team-mates Andreas Klier and Roger Hammond. Hunt made the decisive break in the 2009 Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne to take a superb third place behind Tom Boonen and Bernhard Eisel, one of the most impressive results of the Briton's career.

Hunt joined British-based Team Sky for the 2011 season, where he spent two years as an integral part of their Classics squad. After retiring as a rider, he took up the role of DS at new Azerbaijani venture ‘Synergy Baku', which is also home to former domestic pros Dave Clarke and Dan Craven and continues to grow in strength and notoriety.
