At 19, Jack Bobridge made his Olympic debut at the 2008 Beijing Games where he lined up in the team pursuit. Alongside Brad McGee, Mark Jamieson and Luke Roberts, Australia qualified third fastest before New Zealand edged them in the bronze medal final.
An emerging talent on both the track and the road, by his second Olympic Games he had already won an U/23 road time trial world title (2009), four senior track world titles (individual pursuit and teams pursuit - 2010 and 2011), two Commonwealth Games gold medals (individual pursuit, team pursuit - 2010), which he would go on to defend in 2014, and the 2011 Australian Road Race Championship.
He teamed up with Glenn O’Shea, Rohan Dennis and Michael Hepburn in the team pursuit at the London 2012 Games. The quartet qualified second fastest and progressed to the gold medal race with Great Britain. With a partisan home crowd behind them, the British broke their own world record to claim gold as Australia finished with silver.
Bobridge was a part of the 2015 World Championship team that won bronze in Paris while he also claimed silver in the non-Olympic individual pursuit. He was not a part of the 2016 team that won gold in London after focusing on the road season.
His ability on the road was highlighted in early 2016 when he claimed the road race at the Australian Championships. He returned to train with the team pursuit team in April.
