When Sport spoke to Hoy recently, we asked him why – with the Commonwealth Games on the horizon and the opportunity to compete in the velodrome that bears his name – he chose to retire from competition at the beginning of the summer.

We particularly like the range of knitted merino wool jerseys that come in a range of tasteful autumnal colours with bold, contrasting stripes.
