A member of Orica-GreenEDGE, Clarkey is a great mate of BikeExchange and a brilliant athlete.
A Melbourne lad, 28 year old Clarke got into competitive cycling at the fresh age of 13, and hasn't looked back. He's an aggressive all-rounder cyclist known for his climbing as well as his strong sprint finishes.
Prior to joining Orica-GreenEDGE, Clarke rode for Astana, ISD Neri, Amica Chips and for Continental team SouthAustralia.com-AIS.
We can only see more brilliance ahead of this rider, but so far his pool room looks pretty impressive indeed. Just some of his podiums include:
- 2014 - Tirreno-Adriatico, stage three, 3rd
- 2014 - Tirreno-Adriatico, stage one, 2nd

We wish Clarkey and his Orica-GreenEDGE team mates an outstanding 2014 Tour de France! Come on, fellas!
