With five Olympic medals, Brad McGee has equaled the modern mark for most medals among Olympic cyclists, originally set by Daniel Morelon. McGee first competed at the Olympics in 1996, winning a bronze medals in both the individual and team pursuit events. At Sydney in 2000, he again finished third in the individual pursuit. In 2004, McGee improved to a silver in the individual pursuit, and helped Australia to a gold medal in the team pursuit. He also rode on the World Championship winning Australian pursuit team in 1995. In 1998, McGee won gold medals in the individual and team pursuit at the Commonwealth Games. Brad McGee has since joined the professional péloton, where he is known primarily as a sprinter. In 2003 he held the maillot jaune at the Tour de France for four days, and in 2004, wore the maglia rosa at the Giro d’Italia for three days. This makes him the only Australian to earn the leader’s jerseys at the two most prestigious cycling tours. He has twice won stages at the Tour de France and in 2002, won the points classification at the Dauphiné-Libere.
