Two-times Australian champion Gracie Elvin has extended her contract with Orica-Scott. The Women's WorldTour team secured the rider until the end of 2019.

The current season, the rider has had results that show her progression in the professional ranks, with second places at the Tour of Flanders and Dwars Door Vlaanderen.

"I’m really happy with my decision to stay with the team for the next two seasons," said the rider. "I have thought a lot about what is important to me both professionally and personally, and my instincts have always told me to stay.

"Whilst I’m at home here, I never feel complacent in my role and love that the riders and staff are always pushing me to be my best self. I have full trust in everyone involved and know that I can always dedicate myself to just riding my bike and not worry about peripheral problems."

The team's Sports Director Gene Banes praised these good news for the team. "We are very happy that Gracie has chosen to stay with the Orica-Scott family in 2018," he commented. "Gracie has continued her steady progression throughout the season and this year in particular she has really demonstrated her talent in some of the hardest Classics on the calendar.

"Gracie’s commitment and leadership within the team are important qualities and certainly something that we are looking forward to having for the next two seasons."
