Cycling Legend & Tour Leader

The legendary Danny Clark was inducted into the Australian Sports Hall of Fame in 1987, after receiving the Medal of the Order of Australia in 1986. 

At the height of his career, Danny achieved a silver medal at the Commonwealth Games in 1970 and silver again at the 1972 Olympics Games, 4 World Track Professional Track Championship titles and 13 World Omnium Championship titles. Notably, his fourth and last World Championship title in 1991 was just a few weeks before his 40th birthday making him the oldest title holder to date.

Danny retired from professional cycling in 1997 at 46 years of age, having competed in 235 six-day races and winning 75. A phenominal feat that reamins unbeaten. Since retiring, Danny has continued racing in the Masters category and has subsequently taken out 13 World Champhionship titles thus far.

The video below, of Danny winning the Burnie Wheel race in 1977, was voted the greatest sporting event of the 20th century in Tasmania.

Nowadays, Danny lives on the Gold Coast and is an inspiration to many young and some not so young cyclists at local racing. His competitiveness, bike handling skills, passion and dedication are what makes him one of the longest standing and most successful cyclists Australia has even seen.

Like most cyclists, Danny is quite reserved by nature but has a strong desire to share his extensive knowledge with the other cyclists through "on road experience" on his cycling tours.
