Jess Varnish was one of GB’s leading track sprint cyclists between 2012 - 2017. She was famously paired with Victoria Pendleton for the majority of GB’s reign in the Team Sprint and was known for her sheer speed and power out of the starting blocks to put her partner in the best possible position to take the win. She is a European Champion, World Cup winner, Commonwealth Games medallist, Olympian and World Record holder. In her first elite race at the 2008 Track Cycling World Cup in Manchester, Jess won Gold in the Team Sprint. In 2012, prior to the Olympics, Jess along with her team mate Victoria Pendleton, broke the world record for the women’s team sprint taking Gold on the new Olympic track in what was a defining moment of her career.

Jess went on to break another World Record in the London 2012 Olympic qualifying rounds but, sadly, her debut Olympics ended in disqualification and heartbreak due to a rule infringement on the track. Following on from the Olympics she bounced back with Gold medals in the Team Sprint at the Cali and Glasgow World Cups as well as an individual Silver and Bronze. Following an injury set back in 2013 where she tore a disc in her spine she worked tirelessly on her rehabilitation to win further medals at European and World Cup level as well as two Bronze medals in the
Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
