Biography

Germain Burton (born 29 January 1995) is an English racing cyclist from London, who currently rides for JLT–Condor.

Germain Burton is the son of Mia and Maurice Burton, who was the first black British champion in cycling. He rides for a team sponsored by his father's bike shop, De Ver Cycles, based in Streatham, South London. He began cycling at the age of 12, joining in with the weekend club runs, and soon decided to take the sport seriously after some encouragement from his father.

He won the under 16 British National Circuit Race Championships in 2010. Burton represented Britain at the UCI Juniors Road World Championships in 2012, finishing 36th.

On 8 August 2013, at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow, Burton competed at the UCI Juniors Track World Championships. He was part of Britain's Team Pursuit squad which also included Ollie Wood, Jake Ragan and Tao Geoghegan Hart. They finished fourth, losing the bronze medal to Russia in the final.

In May 2016 British Cycling confirmed that Burton had decided to leave their Olympic Development Programme.
