Mitchelton-Scott has announced the contract extension of Lucas Hamilton until at least the end of 2021.

The 23-year-old started his career at the continental team of Mitchelton-Scott in 2017 and one season later he took a step up to the WorldTour formation. This year the rider impressed in his debut in a grand tour at the Giro d'Italia with his support of Simon Yates and the consistency over the three weeks of the competition.

Then the Australian won a stage at the Czech Tour and the overall title at the Coppi e Bartali. "I love it here," Hamilton said. "I appreciate the team taking me on for the extra year, it shows that they have confidence in me and I get a kick out of that.

"This year was probably the biggest leap I have made, in terms of racing, in my career. I did all ranges of racing, I did lower ones which I was able to target myself and was able to pull off a couple of wins and then the Giro obviously, getting my first Grand Tour under the belt, trying to get that consistency for three weeks and it was a good experience."
