Mitchelton-Scott has announced the signing of Slovenian time trial champion Urska Zigart for the women's formation.

After six seasons in the team known as Ale BTC Ljubljana, the Slovenian time trial champion will join the Australian formation for the next 12 months. She is the second rider of the country to be on the squad after Luka Mezgec and she's the third new signing for the upcoming season after Arianna Fidanza and Teniel Campbell.

"I've always looked up to this team, their winning mentality, but also relaxed, family-like feel," said Zigart. "There are so many talented riders and staff that I can't wait to learn from, so when I got the opportunity to join this team, I didn't have to think too much. I've always heard Luka say only good things about the team. He's happy here, he said the atmosphere is great, everything is properly organised and functioning well in the team, so I was never questioning my decision to join Mitchelton-Scott.

"I am good on the climbs and in stage races, so I want to work on that even more, along with improving in hard, hilly one-day races. Also, I've always liked time trialling but I feel like I lack something in order to be good at it, so I want to improve this. Mitchelton-Scott has always been good in all of these types of races, so I am sure that I can develop well here next year through helping the leaders and learning from them."
