Athlete Biography

A reserve for the London 2012 Team, Anthony Dean has climbed into the top ten in the world to book his spot at his debut Olympic Games in Rio.

The South Australian product began competing when he was seven and after impressing in the National Series, he got his first chance at competing on the world circuit in 2013.

A rider on the rise, Dean was a force to be reckoned with in 2014 as he broke through to win his first World Cup medal with silver in Manchester. He went on finish the season as the second highest ranked rider in the World Cup standings.

Dean made the final of the 2014 World Championships but crashed out as teammate Sam Willoughby was crowned world champion. He backed up his break out year with a strong 2015 which included three World Cup top five results to put himself well in contention for a Rio berth.

Dean’s Olympic year couldn’t have started any worse when he snapped his collarbone in training in early January. After surgery he was back on his bike in a matter of weeks in time to compete at the opening World Cup event of 2016 in Argentina. He finished seventh there and then again at the Papendal World Cup before he bowed out in the semi-finals of the 2016 World Championships.
