Orica-Scott has signed Jack Bauer. The New Zealander will join the Australian team for two years.

The time trial champion of New Zealand comes to the team from Quick-Step Floors to boost the classics squad and be a part of the Grand Tour rosters.

"Riding for Orica-Scott is a really exciting prospect for me, it was an offer impossible to turn down," said Bauer. "As an Australian team, for me it's the closest thing to riding for an outfit from back home. I know all the boys on the team really well, and have done for quite some years, so it seems like the perfect fit.

"I especially look forward to linking up for the first time on a professional level with my good mate Sam Bewley, we'll bring a two-pronged Kiwi attack which should fit well in the Orica-Scott line-up."

Being a versatile rider, Bauer is looking forward to giving his support to the team in all kinds of races. "As an all-rounder myself, I look forward to giving my best and bringing support to the team year-round," he explained. "I have proven myself as a reliable and strong workhorse over the years and a big goal for the season will be to line up alongside Luke Durbridge and Matteo Trentin in the Northern Classics and ride for the win. That's something I really look forward to.

"To bring the New Zealand road champion jersey to the team will be an early season personal goal. I would of course love to return to the Tour de France as a Kiwi in an Aussie team, but there will be a few boxes to tick before that."
