Biography John Tresidder, born July 30 1932, excelled at running, diving and rugby league in his school years at Carrington and Broadmeadow Primary Schools and subsequently Hamilton Marist Brothers.
However, it was as a cyclist that he carved his niche in sporting history later in life. The spotlight focused on him in 1947 as the New South Wales Juvenile Road and Track Champion and in 1948-49 when he reigned as State and Australian titleholder.
