At Athens 2004, Australia won its first gold medal in the team pursuit since Los Angeles 2004. In the final Graeme Brown, Brett Lancaster, Bradley McGee and Luke Roberts combined to beat Great Britain by over 3.5 seconds.  Peter Dawson and Stephen Wooldridge rode in the qualifying round and it was decided by the IOC in Athens that all riders who rode in preliminary rounds, but not the final, would be awarded the same medals as the riders who road in the medal races.  Dawson was in the gold medal-winning pursuit teams at the 2002-2004 and 2006 world championships.
