Roger Hammond (born 30 January 1974) is an English retired bicycle racer, specialising in cyclo-cross and road cycling. Hammond grew up in Chalfont St Peter in Buckinghamshire and attended Dr Challoner's Grammar School as a teenager.[1] While still at school he won the 1992 world junior cyclo-cross championship in Leeds, but elected to concentrate on his university studies before pursuing a cycling career. He was the British road champion in 2003 and 2004. He rode for Discovery Channel in 2005-2006, for Team High Road in 2007–2008, for Cervélo TestTeam in 2009–2010, and Garmin–Cervélo in 2011.[2]

Hammond rode for the Great Britain team in the 2005 and 2006 Tour of Britain.

In July 2012 Roger Hammond was announced as the Team Manager of the newly formed Madison-Genesis team.[3] In November 2015 he announced that he would join Team Dimension Data as a sports director for the 2016 season, combing the position with his Madison-Genesis role.[4]

Hammond has also worked as a pundit for ITV4, providing analysis of the Vuelta a España.[5]
