Joshua Duffy

Joshua Duffy (cycling) is a rising star and powerful rider from Launceston, Duffy enjoyed stellar national track championships in March winning the scratch race, time trial and the Madison with Conor Leahy.  The pair teamed up to claim the Oceania Madison crown in April and were joined by Graeme Frislie and James Moriarty to not only win the continental team pursuit crown but the Nations Cup title in Canada in May.  Duffy was born in Brisbane and grew up in Tasmania attending St Finn’s Barr Primary and St Patrick’s College in Launceston where his year 9 maths teacher was his father Mike. He took up track cycling in 2014 after he was spotted by the Tasmanian Institute of Sport identification program.  As a 16-year-old, he shocked seasoned professionals to win the Devonport Wheel in 2016 and then two years later claimed the first of two Launceston Wheels, fending off a last-lap challenge from Frislie, who he later shared a house with in Adelaide while at the Australian Track academy. Duffy rode the 2022 RoadNats series and finished second to Frislie in the national under-23 criterium race in January. He is coached by Brett Aitken who won gold in the team pursuit and points race at the Victoria 1994 Commonwealth Games.
