Jesse Sergent (born 8 July 1988) is a retired New Zealand racing cyclist who last rode professionally for AG2R La Mondiale.[2] He was born in Feilding.


At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, Sergent won the bronze medal as part of the New Zealand team in team pursuit, together with Sam Bewley, Hayden Roulston Westley Gough, and Marc Ryan.[3]

On 10 November 2008, it was announced that Sergent had signed with Trek-Livestrong's under-23 development team, for 2009 and 2010. Sergent became a stagiaire with Team RadioShack for the last part of the 2010 season.[4] He then signed a professional contract for 2011 with Team RadioShack.[5] Sergent, with several other riders, joined the former Leopard Trek team to form RadioShack–Nissan, ahead of the 2012 season.[1]

Sergent switched to track cycling for the 2012 London Olympics, where he and his team mates (Sam Bewley, Marc Ryan Westley Gough) made themselves double Olympic bronze medalists. Aaron Gate was the only rider added to the team.

In 2013, Sergent rode for RadioShack–Leopard. He started the racing season with New Zealand elite road nations where he placed third.

In 2014, Sergent continues to ride for RadioShack–Leopard - renamed Trek–Segafredo. For the 2014 season Sergent provided support to Fabian Cancellara. Sergent also rode in the Glasgow Commonwealth Games individual road time trial and road race.

Sergent was hit by a neutral service car during the 2015 Tour of Flanders, an accident which kept him out of the sport for three months and resulted in him having three operations. He subsequently signed a two-year deal with AG2R La Mondiale from the start of the 2016 season. However, in July 2016, Sergent retired from professional cycling at the age of 28.[6]
