After winning an Olympic silver medal in the time trial at the 1972 Olympics, Danny Clark embarked on a very successful professional career. Between 1974 and 2000, he won no less than 74 six-day events, a number bettered only by Patrick Sercu. Clark’s versatility was also displayed at the World Championships, winning nine titles in three different disciplines, and 12 medals overall. His titles came in the keirin (1980-81), derny (1984-86, 1988-89) and motor-paced events (1988, 1991). Clark gained seven more medals at World Championships and even won twelve European track titles despite being Australian.
