Andrew "Andy" Tennant (born 9 March 1987) is an English professional track and road racing cyclist who rides for the WIGGINS team.

Biography[edit]

Born in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, UK, Tennant began to make his mark on the cycling world as a junior rider.[2] In 2005 he was selected for British Cycling's Olympic Development Programme and lived in Tuscany, Italy with the GB squad in 2006.[3] Tennant represented England in the points race at the 2006 Commonwealth Games. The following season he overtrained, and his results suffered as a consequence.[4] Tennant is currently a member of British Cycling's Olympic Academy.[4]

Whilst riding for Team Halfords Bikehut in 2009, he was mentored by Rob Hayles.[5]

In 2015 Tennant moved to the new WIGGINS team set up by Bradley Wiggins aiming to prepare British riders for the team pursuit at the 2016 Summer Olympics.[6]
