Matt is a keen Cyclist and in these photos shows he's no slouch on the bike.
Racing at the first indoor Nocturne he was at the front for most of the race before having to give way to those who maybe have a bit more time to train and race.
Before joining BBC London in 2003, Barbet worked at BBC Radio 1 as a newsreader on the Sara Cox Breakfast Show. In 2006 he presented BBC London's Children in Need coverage. He also presented the BBC's STORYFix programme - a light, upbeat look at the news shown on BBC News 24 and the BBC website. In 2007 he was an occasional relief presenter for BBC Breakfast.
In September 2007, Barbet was named as a presenter and correspondent for 5 News on Channel 5. His position came after Kirsty Young, the principal anchor, announced her departure from the programme. He took up his new role in November 2007. In June 2008, Barbet and Isla Traquair, were announced as stand-in presenters on 5 News while Natasha Kaplinsky was on maternity leave. Barbet visited Haiti in January 2010 after the earthquake and has also been embedded with the British Army in Afghanistan. In February 2011, he was announced as the new presenter of the flagship 17:00 programme, after Kaplinsky left the station. He left on 26 July 2012.
On 11 June 2012 it was announced Barbet would leave 5 News to join ITV Breakfast's Daybreak. He made his debut on 3 September 2012 and presents the show from 6am to 7am with Ranvir Singh.
Since October 2011, Barbet has occasionally been a News Reviewer on This Morning with Ranvir Singh.
