Jamie began his career as a specialist BMX cyclist, learning his trade on the American pro circuit. A seven year stint saw Jamie win the World, European, and British titles and register his abilities as one of the top BMX riders in the world.
Having won just about everything on the BMX circuit Jamie in 2001 turned his attentions to the track and the pursuit of the one title that had eluded him throughout his career, an Olympic medal. It didn’t take long for Jamie to establish himself on the track as a specialist rider in the sprint and keirin, claiming a silver medal at the 2002 Commonwealth games. The three-time World Champion finally fulfilled his dream of an Olympic medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics where he claimed gold in the team sprint, an achievement that capped an astonishing career. Having retired from all forms of racing on the 28th March 2010 Jamie now leads the US Sprint team as Director of Sprint.

In the past Jamie has performed talks for the likes of British aerospace and UK Sport and regularly holds down a commentary position for the BBC and Eurosport.
