In September, he delighted home fans at the Tour of Britain, finishing 7th in the Overall GC and supporting teammate Sir Bradley Wiggins to victory. At the end of the 2020 season, Ian was forced to retire prematurely due to rheumatoid arthritis.

Louise Haston

Louise Haston

Most of my track cycling was racing on the tandem with multi Paralympic gold medalist Aileen Mcglynn. Our journey started with riding World Cups on the road, as well as then going on to win double silver at the Glasgow 2014 commonwealth Games and becoming British Champions in 2017 and bronze medalists at the World Championships in LA. We were then selected for our second Commonwealth Games in Goldcoast 2018 where we ended up with bronze. I decided to retire after the Commonwealth Games in 2018 and focus on getting my dream job! I became a police officer in March 2020, slap bang in the middle of the pandemic! This was a challenging time, but joining Police Scotland was the best choice I’ve made. Its an amazing opportunity to be part of this fantastic cycling club, and heres hoping it continues to grow.

I have a son, a daughter, and, at home, various animals to look after thanks to my partner Linda who works for the Fire Service. We live in Dorset.
