Remo Sansonetti

Remo Sansonetti (cycling) carried the Australian flag alongside twin brother Sal at the opening ceremony of the 1978 Commonwealth Games in Edmonton. Remo competed in three Commonwealth Games, Christchurch in 1974 where he won bronze in the road race, Edmonton in 1978, where he fell but got back on his bike to help Phil Anderson win the gold medal, and Brisbane in 1982 where, at 36, he ended his career with a silver in the road race. Also representing Australia at the 1972, 1976 and 1980 Olympics, Remo won the Australian national road title in 1976. The Sansonetti’s arrived in Australia in the 1960’s and went on to become Australian cycling legends. For many years, the Sansonetti’s produced the bikes for the Australian track cycling team. Remo and Sal were inducted into the Victorian Cycling Hall of Fame in 2016.
