Tom Cary has been appointed as the cycling correspondent at the Telegraph.
Cary begins his new job on Monday, after five years as the Telegraph’s Formula One correspondent.
Cary is the Telegraph’s first designated cycling correspondent since Phill Liggett left the paper in 2006.
Brendan Gallagher, Sir Bradley Wiggins’ ghost writer who was short-listed for the SJA’s Specialist Correspondent award in 2012, had covered the sport for the Telegraph since 2003, including three Olympic Games and 10 Tours de France, until he was made redundant last July. Gallagher is now freelancing, including working regularly for the Rugby Paper.
Taking over from Cary on the motor racing circuit will be Daniel Johnson, who has been with the Telegraph for 18 months on their graduate trainee scheme.
According to the Telegraph, Johnson “worked on sport last year and has a deep knowledge of F1. He has proved himself one of the rising stars in the company”.
