Michael Hepburn will continue in Mitchelton-Scott for at least two more seasons.

The 28-year-old has been in the team since its beginning in 2012 and has proven year by year to be a good supporter in the many victories it has achieved over the years. The Australian's strengths lie mainly in his strong and powerful physique, which he has had since his track days and that is very helpful for the team time trial events.

"I have been with the team since the start, I think there's only about four or five of us left from the very start so I feel like I really know the team well," Hepburn commented. "It feels like a family environment to me with all the riders and staff and there's nowhere else I can see myself at the moment.

"One of the big goals for me and my job in a lot of races is to support the GC guys in the stage races and that is what I am looking forward to doing over the next two years. We have got guys that have won Grand Tour stages and a guy that has won a Grand Tour and we've got a few other guys that are well and truly capable of getting podium places in big races, so I see my role as being a support rider to those.

"We've seen a big shift over the last four or five years with the team's targets and goals and with the young riders coming up and turning into some of the best GC riders in the world. We're all aware that of our jobs and being a part of the engine room is something I really enjoy doing."
