Will
Clarke

Will Clarke joined Trek-Segafredo in 2019, arriving from EF-Education First, but is not unique to the Trek family having raced for Leopard-Trek in 2011. He has won six prologues throughout his career but is best known for his exceptional workhorse abilities, his big engine often pulling at the front of the peloton. Will rode his second Grand Tour in 2019, the Giro d'Italia, helping the team keep the best climber jersey from start to finish. He suffered a horrific high-speed crash while going for the win in the final meters at the Baloise Belgium Tour, which effectively ended his season. The soft-spoken Tasmanian spends his off-season helping out on his family's 20,000-acre farm; it's no surprise he is affectionately known by teammates and fans as 'The Big Horse'.
