Aqua Blue Sport's Matt Brammeier is retiring from professional cycling. The rider puts an end to a 12-year career in the pro peloton and takes a coaching role at British Cycling.

The 33-year-old has been five times champion of Ireland despite being born in Liverpool to second-generation Irish emigrant parents. Brammeier took four consecutive titles in the road race between 2010 and 2013 and a TT title in 2011.

"After more than a decade in the peloton I’ve finally decided that the time is right to move on to the next stage in my career," said the rider who has been in Aqua Blue Sport since its inception in 2016. "I feel massively privileged and proud of my career to date. There’s been so many happy memories created along the way and I’ve been lucky enough to cross paths with so many amazing people in some amazing parts of the world."

"To be given the opportunity to continue to work within the sport I’m so passionate about and contribute to the future careers of the next generation of British cyclists fills me with nothing but pride. Thanks so much to everyone that helped me along my journey so far."

Brammeier has been appointed as the lead academy coach for the Great Britain Cycling Team's men's endurance programme.
