Grand tours (Giro d’Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana) have always been good hunting grounds for the Australian professional cyclist- Simon Clarke. In the Vuelta a Espana 2012, Clarke was not only able to win one of the race stages but also won the stage of mountains classification. Along with that, Clarke’s team Orica-GreenEdge won the team time-trial race stage in the Tour de France 2013.
Simon Clarke had also participated in the Tour de France 2014 in which he was honored with the most combative rider award after the stage 12 of the tour. Clarke had received the same combative rider prize after the stage 3 of Tour de France 2013.
For the upcoming cycling season, Clarke wants to focus on Giro d’Italia instead of the other two grand tours. (more…)
