Grace Brown

Grace Brown (cycling)  won gold in women’s road time trial at her first Commonwealth Games appearance in Birmingham. It came a year after missing a medal in the event by less than seven seconds on her Olympic debut in Tokyo and she followed with consecutive silver medals at the 2022 and 2023 world road championships.

Brown made a junior national team in cross-country athletics in primary school and continued her athletics career through high school and at 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 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.

Brown has had a string of world-class results including podium finishes in several major European classics such as Liege-Bastogne-Liege (2020, 2022) and the Tour of Flanders (2021) as well as overall wins in the Women’s Tour Down Under and the Bretagne Ladies’ Tour in 2023. She has also claimed four national time trial titles (2019, 2022, 2023, 2024).

Brown spent three years racing for top Australian team BikeExchange-Jayco and now rides for the French squad FdJ Suez.
