Fast Track 100

Cycling clothing company Rapha clinched a big deal last year, becoming the official supplier to Team Sky, the top team in road cycling. The North London firm now provides Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome with their distinctive blue and black kit. Nine-year-old Rapha was founded by chief executive Simon Mottram, 47, who has built an international brand, with sales of £16.9m in 2013. Its luxury sportswear, accessories and travel goods, sold mainly online, include gloves made from African Hair Sheep leather, lightweight merino-rich jerseys, skincare creams and publications such as the City Guides cycling maps.
