HONOURS

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 marked his sixteenth year as a Team GB team pursuit cyclist as he competed in his fourth Olympic games in Tokyo.

 

Ed was born in Barnsley in 1985, and grew up in Yorkshire. He would spend hours on his bike and loved cycling, but he wouldn't compete 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 Championship, aged 20.

 

Since then, Ed has competed as an endurance cyclist on both track and road, notably riding for JLT-Condor road team 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 retired from Team GB in August 2021. His last professional race was in December 2021 as part of the inaugural Track Champions League competition in London. 

Ed currently works part time for British Cycling's Research and Innovation Team and consults for British Triathlon. In January 2022, he launched performance consultancy business Pursuit Line with his long-term mentor and business partner, Phil Kelly. 

In 2020, along with former road teammate Graham Briggs, he launched the Clancy Briggs Cycling Academy, aiming to get children learning and enjoying riding a bike.
