Catching up with Clarkey

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.
