South African Daryl Impey will add another three seasons to his time at Orica-BikeExchange after signing a contract to remain with the Australian team until 2019.

"This team is where my career took off and I feel really at home with everything here," said the rider. "It's been a fantastic run these last five seasons and I'm happy to continue to be part of it. To me, there is a unique feeling on this team and that’s what makes the difference.

"I'm looking forward to expanding my role a little bit and it feels good to be part of the team that helps out in the hillier races too. I feel very motivated going into these next years and to help achieve new goals for the team."

Sport director Matt White comments on the role of Impey within the squad. "Daryl is a very important backbone of this team. He has been part of our biggest victories and is a key rider across all types of terrain.

"His personality really gives a lot to the team and our values and he is a real leader both on and off the bike. We're really proud to continue with Daryl and we are confident of seeing him evolve even more into one of our real leaders and also to take chances when presented to win for himself."

Impey was the first South African to wear the Yellow Jersey at the Tour de France and his palmares includes five victories in the National Time Trial Championships of his home country, one in the Tour of Turkey and one in the Tour of Alberta. He also won, along with his Orica-BikeExchange teammates, a bronze medal at the 2016 World Team Time Trial Championships.
