Mitchelton-Scott has confirmed a 25-rider men's squad for the 2019 season. The team will continue focusing on Grand Tours and the Classics season.

The 2018 season has been one of the most successful for the team. The squad took 38 UCI victories that included 17 WorldTour wins, six Grand Tour stages and the first Grand Tour victory by Simon Yates at the Vuelta a España.

For 2019, the Australian team will keep on focusing on grand tours and Flemish and Ardennes Classics. "We want to continue our success in the Grand Tours, continuing to back our GC riders for overall victory and the Classics are also still a focus for us," commented head sports director Matt White.

"We have a Flemish and Ardennes group that is capable of winning up there and it’s still a very big goal for the team. It’s exciting for us and our fans to carry the momentum into 2019. This year has been one of our most successful years, we want to carry on that success straight away from January onwards."

The Yates brothers along with Esteban Chaves will be the three men for the Grand Tours. The team will also include seven riders: Brent Bookwalter, Tsgabu Grmay, Edoardo Affini, Nick Schultz, Callum Scotson, Dion Smith and Robert Stannard.
