Biography

Ian Hallam was Britain’s premier pursuit cyclist between the eras of Hugh Porter and Tony Doyle. A winner of multiple national titles, he was most successful at the Commonwealth Games where he won three gold medals and two bronze in 1970 and 1974 but was also a member of the British pursuit squad that twice finished as runners-up at the World Track Championships. He competed at three Olympic Games in both individual and team pursuit and was a member of the bronze medal winning teams in both 1972 and 1976. Hallam also had some success as a road cyclist and placed third in the British Road Race Championship in 1974. He also won two stages of the Milk Race (the amateur tour of Britain) in 1976. Ian turned professional at the relatively advanced age of 30 and spent five moderately successful seasons with KP Crisps pro team. He still rides in masters events.
