Grace Brown

Grace Brown (cycling) will make her first Commonwealth Games appearance a year after missing a medal in the road time trial by less than seven seconds on her Olympic debut in Tokyo. Brown made a junior national team in cross-country running when in grade three and continued with an athletics career through high school at Presbyterian Ladies College and the University of Melbourne, where she earned an honours degree in international relations. However, persistent injuries forced a serendipitous career change in 2015 when she bought a bike and followed in the footsteps of her father Tony, a keen cyclist, and joined the St Kilda Cycling Club. Within three years she was riding for Australia at the world championships. Since then, Brown has claimed two national-time trial championships and has finished on the podium of several major European classics including Liege-Bastogne-Liege (2020 and 2022) and the Tour of Flanders (2021). After three years of racing for the top Australian team BikeExchange-Jayco, she has signed a two-year deal with French squad FDJ Nouvelle Aquitaine Futuroscope.
