Rohan Dennis

Rohan Dennis (cycling) has transformed into a formidable road time trialler and a super domestique on the grand tours. In 2004 when he was 14, Dennis was identified by the South Australian Institute of Sport as having the physical attributes of a champion cyclist. By 2009, he was a member of Australia’s world champion team pursuit quartet. He went on to win another pursuit world title in 2011 before claiming a silver medal at the London Olympics a year later. Shortly after, Dennis moved to the road circuit full-time with his win in the Tour de Under in 2015 his biggest multi-stage victory. He is also one of only four Australians to win a stage of all three grand tours including wearing the yellow jersey in the Tour de France after winning the prologue time trial in 2015. Dennis has been plagued by bad luck in road time trials with crashes, broken bikes and punctures costing him podium positions at world championships and the 2016 Olympics in Rio. He bounced back to win consecutive time trial world titles in 2018 and 2019 before claiming a bronze medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Kathy Watt is the only other Australian cyclist to win medals on the track and road at the Olympics. Dennis is competing at his third Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, having won silver in the time trial at his last appearance in Glasgow in 2014.  He is married to Melissa Hoskins a two-time Olympian, track world champion and a member of Australia’s Commonwealth Games team in Glasgow 2014.
