Roger Hammond career profile

Roger Hammond showed considerable promise as a schoolboy, winning the prestigious world junior cyclo-cross championships.

Electing to continue with his university education before focusing entirely on cycling, Hammond forged a successful career on the continent riding for predominantly Belgian teams.

His big break came in 2004 when he finished third at Paris-Roubaix, which landed him a ride at Lance Armstrong’s Discovery Channel team for the next season and was the culmination of a great deal of hard work and several fine results in some major races.

Two years later, Hammond was on the move again; this time to T-Mobile, after a largely fruitless relationship with the American team. Specialising in the Spring Classics as well as cyclo-cross, Hammond became one of the pillars of the Columbia team as well as a key-lead out man for fellow countryman, Mark Cavendish.

Hammond got his 2009 season off to a flying start with the new Cervélo Test Team, winning a stage of the Tour of Qatar and enjoying a brief spell in the leader's jersey.

Hammond signed with Garmin-Cervelo for the 2011 season after the demise of the Cervelo Test Team at the end of 2010.

At the end of the 2011 season, Hammond found himself without a contract, effectively ending his professional racing career at the top level.

Hammond has signed up as manager of the British-based Madison Genesis under-23 road team for the 2013 season.
