Simon Clarke (EF Pro Cycling) started the season in imposing form. He took second on a stage at Etoile de Besseges, likewise on a stage of the Tour du Haut Var, and then won the Royal Bernard Drome Classic at his first attempt. It all augured well for a strong Spring Classics season for the Australian, who went eighth at last year’s Strade Bianche, ninth at Milan-San Remo and second at the Amstel Gold Race.

Orica-GreenEDGE pro Simon Clarke has established himself as a serious World Tour hitter over the last couple of years. A breakout Vuelta King of the Mountains title and stage win in 2012 was followed by a solid 2013 topped with a top ten in the brutal Florence Worlds in September. How has this season been and what’s in store for 2014?

Clarke turns attention to Classics.

He raced his first Grand Tour in 2012, won a stage and took home the climbers’ prize jersey. Simon Clarke enjoyed success in the Vuelta a España last year and he knows it’ll be a different sort of race when he lines up for this debut in the Tour de France on 29 June 2013.

Clarke is another product of the Australian Institute of Sport’s team pursuit ‘production line’: he was a member of the winning 2004 world junior championship team, along with a certain Matt Goss. In 2005 his domestic palmares were impressive; including a GC win in the Tour of the Murray River - but a third place on a stage of the Giro delle Regione showed that the European scene didn’t overawe him.

Comme première victoire professionnelle, il y a pire. Simon Clarke, 26 ans, a aujourd'hui remporté la quatrième étape de la Vuelta qui arrivait au sommet de la station de Valdezcaray. C'est la première victoire dans la carrière du coureur australien d'Orica-GreenEDGE. Après s'être débarassé de trois de ses compagnons d'échappée, Clarke est arrivé pour la gagne avec Tony Martin. Au sprint, il n'a pas fait de détails, et pouvait savourer ce moment inoubliable pour lui.

His name may not have figured on the Muur or Bosberg but Astana’s young Aussie Simon Clarke did a good job for his team in Sunday’s edition of the Ronde. Now he’s lining out in Paris-Roubaix, encouraged in ways by his ride last weekend, but aware that the terrain is very different.
