Dan Martin

I was born five weeks premature, so the research which Action Medical Research is funding into what causes some women to go into labour early is particularly poignant for me."

Dan Martin has cycling in his DNA, and cycling is very much a family affair. His father Neil raced for many years, and his uncle Stephen Roche and cousin Nicolas Roche are both champions.

Dan had a bad crash in 2017 with Richie Porte on the Tour de France which meant he would go on to ride the race with a fractured spine!

He had a great 2018 with UEA Emirates, and took his first win of the season with a stage win at the Critérium du Dauphiné. On 12 July Martin won the second Tour de France stage of his career by winning stage 6 (Mûr-de-Bretagne). He was named the most combative at the Tour de France overall.

Dan and his wife Jess are proud parents to beautiful twin girls, Daisy and Ella.
