Richard Moore (born in 1973) is a Scottish journalist, author, and former racing cyclist. He represented Great Britain at the Tour of Langkawi and Scotland at the PruTour and the 1998 Commonwealth Games, where he competed in the road race and the time trial.[1]

Moore was disqualified from the 1996 FBD Milk Rás for holding onto a car following a crash during stage 7, he subsequently spent the rest of the stage in the team car discussing with a journalist how he could begin a career in journalism. Moore said "I had been chucked out of the race for cheating but I had, effectively, taken my first step on the journalistic ladder."[2] He is one of the most established cycling journalists around today.[3] Moore has contributed to Rouleur Magazine,[4] Scotland on Sunday, The Herald, Sunday Herald, The Guardian, Sunday Times,[5] and The Scotsman.[6]

His first book was a biography of the cyclist Robert Millar; In Search of Robert Millar won the "Best Biography" category at the 2008 British Sports Book Awards.[7] His second book, Heroes, Villains & Velodromes: Chris Hoy and Britain's Track Cycling Revolution, was published in June 2008.

He is also the author of Slaying the Badger: LeMond, Hinault and the Greatest Ever Tour de France (Yellow Jersey, 2011) and Sky's the Limit: British Cycling's Quest to Conquer the Tour de France (HarperSport, 2011).

His next book is The Dirtiest Race in History: Ben Johnson, Carl Lewis and the Seoul Olympic 100m Final (Wisden Sports Writing, 7 June 2012).
