Mitchelton-Scott has announced its complete roster for the 2019 season. Ten riders will wear the colours of the Australian team at the upcoming season.

Eight riders extended their contracts with the team and two new cyclists will reinforce the squad. "2018 was a great year for the team," said sports director Martin Vestby. "We have a core group of riders who have developed together throughout the past years and now they are working really well together, understanding each other both on and off the bike and that saw us achieve so many results this season.

"One of our main strengths this year was that we are really a ‘team’ and we will continue that into 2019 with continuing with mostly the same riders."

Mitchelton-Scott had an impressive 2018 season in which it claimed the victory in four UCI stage races, including the Giro-Rosa by Annemiek van Vleuten. Dutch rider Moniek Tenniglo and Australian Grace Brown are the new additions for the team ahead of the 2019 season.

"2019 will be exciting," explained Vestby. It will be hard to top the 2018 season but hopefully, with less bad luck and injuries we can start with our top team lining-up in major events and it also gives us the room to rotate more races and not burn out any riders. I’m sure that we will see positive effects from that and hopefully even more victories.

"We really built some good processes and routines that strengthen our operations this year but of course there is always a potential to improve more and on an individual level. For me, to continue with this core group is a natural way to continue to move forward."
