Palma.—Sir Chris Hoy, the most successful cyclists of all time is an eleven-time world champion, six-time Olympic champion and a winner of a total of seven Olympic Games medals, six gold and one silver.

With his three gold medals in 2008 Summer Olympics, Hoy became Scotland's most successful Olympian, the first Briton to win three gold medals in a single Olympic Games since Henry Taylor in 1908, and the most successful Olympic cyclist.

He won a further two gold medals (in the keirin and team sprint) at the 2012 Summer Olympics, making him the most successful British Olympian of all time in terms of gold medals, and the joint most decorated athlete with fellow cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins with seven medals in total.

Now, retired from competitive cycling, Hoy has teamed up with Evans Cycles for his HOY Bikes project.
And, to start with Hoy will be offering three road models which will all be named after the Sa Calobra climb which Hoy and the GB track team used, and continues to use, during their winter training camps on the island.

And, by all accounts, the Sa Calobra range has already been road tested by cycle experts here in Majorca and has passed with flying colours.
The perfect tribute to the island which has played such an important part in the careers of Hoy, Wiggins and now Froome.
