about ed.

Ed Clancy OBE is the most successful Team Pursuit cyclist in history, having won gold with Team GB at three successive Olympics. 2021 will be his sixteenth year as a Team GB team pursuit cyclist as he aims for Tokyo 2021 - his fourth Olympics.

 

Ed was born in Barnsley in 1985, and grew up in Yorkshire, spending hours on his bike and enjoying cycling but not competing seriously until he was scouted by British Cycling at the age of 16. 

 

He won his first gold medal with the Great Britain Team Pursuit squad at the 2005 World Championships at the age of 20. Since then, Ed has competed as an endurance cyclist on both track and road, notably riding for JLT-Condor on the road from 2011 to 2018. He won gold in Team Pursuit at both the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and the London Olympics in 2012, and was World Champion in Omnium in 2010, winning a bronze medal in the discipline at the London Olympics. 

 

He fought to return from a back injury and surgery in September 2015 to win an historic third gold medal in Team Pursuit at the Rio Olympics in 2016.

Ed still loves bikes as much now as he did when he was a kid, particularly mountain bikes and trials bikes in addition to road and track cycling! In 2020, along with former road teammate Graham Briggs, he launched the Clancy Briggs Cycling Academy, aiming to teach as many kids as possible about the fun and joy of riding a bike, something Ed hopes will be his legacy.
