Svein Tuft to stay in Orica-Scott for another year


Orica-Scott has re-signed Canadian Time Trial champion Svein Tuft for the 2018 season. This will be the seventh season of the rider at the Australian team.

The Canadian turned 40 during the last Giro d'Italia and is the oldest member of the team, but claims that he still has many things to learn and is excited to stay in the squad. "Orica-Scott has been my home for the last six years," he said. "I’ve seen the team grow and adapt into the grand tour general classification contending team that it is now."

"As the team has been changing, I've also been adapting and growing and I still have things to learn. I enjoy this process and it keeps you young as a rider."

The ten-times Canadian time trial champion has ridden 11 grand tours and is happy to keep helping the younger guys. "The choice was easy after riding the Giro d'Italia this season, being part of that great group of people leaves me wanting more," Tuft explained.

"Helping the young guys excel and learn gives me a great satisfaction. Helping these guys at the big tours will be my motivation next year and as always, trying to win the world championship team time trial. Orica-Scott is my second family and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else."
