Eddie Dawkins

The man they call "Big Dawk" has been at the vanguard of New Zealand's emergence as a formidable sprint powerhouse. He rode man-three in the Kiwis' triumphant Team Sprint trio at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and 2014 World Championships.

He has won World Championship and Commonwealth Game medals in the Sprint and Keirin.

Dawkins formed a key part of the sprint team that was relegated to second place in the 2015 World Championships  but then won his second world title in Team Sprint in the London Olympic Games in 2016, and followed this with his second successive silver medal in the Keirin.

Dawkins rode the track sprint at the London 2012 Olympic Games, therefore Rio will be his second Olympic Games.

In the summer of 2017 while representing The Velo Shop, Eddie broke the T-Town flying 200 track record with a time of 10.141.
