Georgia Baker

A multiple junior world title winner, team pursuit rider Georgia Baker got her first chance at the senior World Championships in 2016. The Aussies would finish fifth at the event after a disrupted preparation but Baker impressed enough to book her spot to her first Olympic Games.

It was another tough competition for Baker and the Aussies with a training crash cruelling their chances of a podium finish at the Rio 2016 Games. Baker lined up in all three of the team’s rides as the team eventually defeated Italy to claim fifth.
