Jack McDonough began his cycling career in 1947 with the Brunswick Amateurs.  Within three years he had launched into a professional riding career with the Coburg Cycling Club.

The man nicknamed "Mountain Goat" rode 16 Sun Tours, is best remembered for his efforts in leading the 1957 Tour for 7 days before losing the leader’s yellow jersey to the legendary Russell Mockeridge on the final day.  He eventually finished third, but still won the KOM.

In 1970 he joined the Victorian Pedal Club where he taught children the basics of cycling and road safety for more than 20 years.

Jack was a life member of the Coburg Pedal Club, Victorian Pedal Club, Coburg Cycling Club and League of Victorian Wheelmen (now CSV) and on the Sun Tour organising committee for more than 10 years.
