Kelland O’Brien

Australian national track team

Victoria’s Kelland O’Brien won gold in the scratch, madison and team pursuit events at the 2019 National Championships and, along with Team UniSA-Australia teammate Sam Welsford, was part of the world record-breaking pursuit team at the 2019 World Championships. O’Brien also picked up gold in the team pursuit at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in 2018. He is looking forward to racing with some of the world’s best. “This is my first world tour race,” he says. “Obviously there are a lot of big names here and a lot of my heroes – racing against them is going to be super special.” O-Brien will co-captain the team with Adelaide local Jarrad Drizners.
