Bio

Born and raised in Queensland as the youngest of three children, Madison began her cycling career as a BMX rider when she was only five and a half years old.

After winning multiple national gold medals and a junior world title, she decided to make the switch from BMX to track cycling in 2012, and it wasn’t long before she made a name for herself in her new discipline.

Madison made her international track cycling debut at the 2016 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Montichiari, Italy, as pilot for Jessica Gallagher, and together they won gold in the sprint and bronze in the 1km time trial.

Although hoping for Paralympic gold, at Rio 2016 they won a bronze medal in the 1km time trial B.

Outside of training and competition Madison enjoys reading, going to the gym and the beach, and drinking coffee.

She hopes to represent Australia at the Olympic Games within the next ten years and be living a happy and healthy lifestyle.
