For Ryan Owens, competitive cycling is a family affair.
Born into a keen cycling family, both Owens' father and grandfather competed on two wheels and inspired him to take up the sport himself.
At the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, Owens won silver in the team sprint alongside Joseph Truman and Philip Hindes.
The Milton Keynes native was a shock pick for reserve rider at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and, although he never made it onto the Olympic track, proved his talent in selection.
But 2021 was his year, stepping into the velodrome and winning silver alongside Sir Jason Kenney and Jack Carlin in the Team Sprint at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
