Caja Rural - Seguros RGA signs Australian prospect

Spanish UCI Professional Continental team Caja Rural - Seguros RGA has confirmed the signing of young Australian talent Nick Schultz.

The 22-year-old rode for SEG Racing Academy before joining Orica-BikeExchange as a stagiare in July and impressed the cycling world with a solo victory in the queen stage of the Tour de l'Avenir.

"Since I was very young, I dreamed of turning professional in Europe," the Australian said.

"It means so much to me that Caja Rural - Seguros RGA has provided me with this opportunity to pursue my dreams. The management of the team had already shown faith in me earlier this season and it was important for me to join a team who I felt believed in me and wanted to help me develop and progress through the professional ranks.

"I see Caja Rural - Seguros RGA as a very strong team who takes part in some of the nicest races in the world. From the exterior, it appears the team has a family like atmosphere and that is very important to me."

Apart from his stage victory in the Tour de l'Avenir, Schultz has also won a stage in the Tour de Bretagne and finished first in the Young Rider Classification of the Oberösterreichrundfahrt.
