Orica-Scott has announced the re-signing of road and track rider Alexandra Manly. The Australian will start her fourth season with the team.

During her 2017 season, Manly took the bronze and silver in the Madison and the team pursuit for Australia at the track world championships in Hong Kong. At the same time, on the road, the Australian won the U23 time trial and road race titles at the national championships and took the third place in the opening team time trial at the Giro Rosa.

"I’m thrilled to be heading back to Orica-Scott for my third season in Europe," said the rider. "I have had some fantastic opportunities over the past couple of years and have developed some really good relationships with my teammates who have become like a family to me.

"I have big goals for the upcoming years and I am excited and thankful to be given the chance to chase my dreams with Orica-Scott."

The team's Sports director Gene Bates mentioned the growth the rider has shown at the squad. "In 2017 we have seen a huge transformation in her maturity and contributions to the team," he commented. "A stand out event for Alex this year was the Giro Rosa, where she was a key member of the team that supported Annemiek van Vleuten to third overall."

"Next season Alex will continue to focus on both road and track commitments with her first major objective for 2018 coming at the track world championships in Holland. We really look forward to seeing Alex back in Europe racing in Orica-Scott colours and we are excited about the upcoming season."
