Mitchelton-Scott has announced its complete women's roster to face 2020 and has confirmed the exclusion of Sofie De Vuyst from the formation.

The team has been confirmed as part of the Women's WorldTour for the current season and has continued strenghtening its roster for it. After the 2019 season, in which it took 18 victories including the Giro Rosa and the Santos Tour Down Under, Mitchelton-Scott will face the 2020 season with its most international roster ever with the inclusion of Janneke Ensing and Jessica Roberts.

"With these two new riders we will have even more opportunities to play the game in the races," said sports director Martin Vestby. "We are generally making the team stronger in all areas and now we will have all types of riders with different strengths, so we can be active and aggressive in a lot more scenarios of racing.

"I think we have a really good team in general for 2020 and the team remains much the same which I think is important," Martin added. "Having a slightly bigger roster will help us balance out the racing schedule and allow riders to come in fresher for races and then be able perform at a higher level throughout the whole year."

The Australian formation has also confirmed that the name of Sofie De Vuyst was removed from its UCI registration and that her contract has been suspended. The Belgian rider tested positive for 'exogenous steroids' at an out-of-competition test that was held on September 18 of 2019.

• Jessica Allen - (AUS 26)
• Grace Brown - (AUS, 27)
• Gracie Elvin - (AUS, 31)
• Janneke Ensing - (NED, 33)
