Grace Brown, Michael Matthews spearhead Australian road team for Olympic Games

Australia announced its Paris Olympic Games road and track cycling team on Saturday, with Grace Brown and Michael Matthews spearheading the squad for the lumpy, Classics style road races in Paris.

Simon Clarke and Luke Plapp will be joining Matthews on the road. The dual Australian champion Plapp – who at the last Olympics was part of the bronze medal winning track endurance squad – is also an obvious choice to contest the time trial. Brown, who will be looking to step up in the race against the clock, will be joined in the road race by Australian champion Ruby Roseman-Gannon and the ever reliable domestique Lauretta Hanson.

Georgia Baker is also lining up at the Games for a third time as part of the track endurance squad alongside Alexandra Manly, Maeve Plouffe and a debuting Sophie Edwards and Chloe Moran.
