Ed's Profile

About Ed

Ed Clancy specialises in the team pursuit and won Olympic gold in the event in 2008, breaking the world record twice in Beijing.

Ed added a world championship title and Olympic gold in 2008.

Following the introduction of the omnium to the 2012 Olympic Games programme, Ed has tried his hand at the event and became world champion in 2010 on his first attempt at the event.

In 2012 Clancy was part of the team pursuit squad who took back the world championship titlefor the first time since 2008.

Ed went on to defend his team pursuit title at the London Olympics along with Geraint Thomas, Peter Kennaugh and Steven Burke, breaking their own world record in the process.

Ed also competed in the omnium where he won bronze.

After the Games, Ed switched disciplines from endurance to sprint. At the Glasgow World Cup in November 2012, Ed filled Sir Chris Hoy's shoes in the man three position behind Philip Hindes and Jason Kenny, winning silver.

Ed switched back to endurance ahead of the 2013 UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Belarus, winning the silver medal in the team pursuit with Steven Burke, Ed Clancy and Sam Harrison.

Ed became a European team pursuit champion along with Steven Burke, Owain Doull and Andy Tennant in Apeldoorn in 2013.

At the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Ed won silver for England in the team pursuit alongside Sir Bradley Wiggins, Andy Tennant and Steve Burke. At the 2014 European Track Championships in Guadaloupe, Ed won the gold medal in the team pursuit and the bronze medal in the scratch race. Illness took Ed out of the first round of the UCI Track Cycling World Cup, but he was back for the second round in London where he rode the qualifying rounds to secure the team pursuit squad a place in the final, which they went on to win.

The men's team pursuit squad bounced back from the disappointment of the 2014 result in Colombia, where they finished 8th, to take the silver medal at the 2015 event in Paris.
