Pete Kennaugh opens up about early retirement, his mental battles and coming to terms with the bike

In 2019, Olympic gold medalist and two-time British National Champion Pete Kennaugh retired from the sport of cycling aged 29.

Once tipped as the 'next big thing' in British cycling, Kennaugh found himself no longer driven to ride a bike and, after years of inner conflict, decided to close the pro racing chapter of his life.
