One of Britain’s most promising young riders, Jon Dibben has enjoyed success on the world stage of road and track cycling.
The ex-Team Sky rider (2017-18) and 2016 points race world champion, Dibben’s strong pedigree stretches back nearly a decade.
Rising to prominence with third place at the junior Paris-Roubaix and a silver medal at the junior track world championships, Dibben balanced his years as an under-23 between road and track cycling.
Part of the British Cycling Academy, he targeted appearances at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
But despite becoming world champion at the 2016 track world championships in the points race, and winning a silver medal in the team pursuit, Dibben missed out on selection for the Games. A crash and fractured elbow at the ZLM Roompot Toer effectively took him out of contention just five-months out from the Olympics.
Signing with Team Sky in 2017 and turning his attention to the road full time, many hoped Dibben could become a force in the cobbled classics.
However, it would be two time trials where Dibben scored victory, firstly at the Tour of California in 2017 and again in the team time trial at the Coppi e Bartali.
Dibben joins Madison Genesis mid-season in 2019 having spent the first half of the season on the track for six day races in London, Hong Kong and Australia.
I’m really grateful to Roger for bringing me in and I’m excited to get back racing.
It’s probably the most solid team from a UK-perspective for the whole package. With Roger there and the history, it’s a good team to come into and continue to progress.
