Australian time trial specialist Michael Hepburn has extended his contract with Orica-Scott for another two seasons.

Hepburn joined the Australian team in 2012 and has since helped the team win two Team Time Trials at the Giro d'Italia. He also won the Australian National Time Trial Championships in 2014.

The rider had most of his success on the track however, having won Gold medals at the UCI Track World Cup, the Commonwealth Games and the Oceania Track Championships.

"I have been with this team from the beginning and in that time I've formed great bonds with many of the riders and staff," said the rider. "It really does feel like home, like a family to me and I’m really pleased to be staying with the team for another two years.

"I’m looking forward to racing the northern classics again after having missed them last season due to commitments with the national team on the track and the team time trial world championships are still a huge goal of mine.

Hepburn describes his time at Orica-Scott as a continuous learning experience.

"I’ve seen the team’s goals change over my time and we've all had to adapt in different ways, allowing me to continuously learn new things each year.

"With so many general classification riders now capable of being on the podium in the biggest races on the calendar, I want to keep helping them and the team achieve goals in those races.

"I feel like I've made some big gains in my development in the last year and I'm really excited and looking forward to testing myself in more races," the rider concluded.
