The Sports Carnivals Association of Tasmania has announced that Nathan Clark will be its ambassador for this year's Basslink Tasmanian Christmas Carnivals. Nathan is an Australian scratch man who has been contracted to ride at this year's carnivals.
"Throughout his sporting career Nathan has been a credit to himself and the sport," said organisers. "He is a local person who has been able to combine the rigours of professional sport with full time employment - which is somewhat of a rarity in sport today."
In recent months Nathan has excelled as a member of the Praties cycling team by winning several road tour criteriums and stages. He is also a former winner of the 2004 Latrobe Wheel race and has been a very successful rider at past Tasmanian carnivals.
