Lucas Plapp

Lucas Plapp  (cycling) is one of the rising stars on the road, he will compete on the track at his first Commonwealth Games. He took up cycling aged 12 to keep fit while he dreamed of a cricket and football career and five years later claimed the points race and Madison at the Junior World Championships in 2018. Plapp won the national under-23 road time trial in 2020 before claiming the elite crown a year later. In 2022, he added the elite road race to his resume – only Cameron Meyer has won both national titles and a Commonwealth Games gold medal.  He won a bronze medal in the ill-fated team pursuit, where Alex Porter’s snapped handlebar robbed the Australians of any hope of gold. Plapp, 21, has also signed with top World Tour team Ineos Grenadiers, where Richie Porte will be one of his teammates. A few weeks after his Olympic medal, Plapp won silver in the under-23 time-trial at the world road championships.
