Two-time U23 Vuelta a Colombia winner Jesús David Peña is set to make his WorldTour debut with Team BikeExchange in 2022.

The Australian team has announced the signing of the promising rider for 2022 and with a two-year deal. The Colombian has finished in the second-place in stages of the Giro Ciclistico d'Italia and has won the Colombian U23 competition twice, and the formation wants to keep investing in the developing of young talents, having already a strong track record with riders from the South American countries.

"I am so excited; I am going to join a WorldTour team, which has always been my dream," said Peña. "Doing it with GreenEDGE Cycling, which I have always followed, it makes it even more special. When the opportunity was presented to me, I didn't hesitate a second and I took it straight away.

"Now, of course the hard part will begin, it won't be easy to compete with the best cyclists in the world, but my motivation is extremely high and this for me is only a starting point. I will have to study, I will have to learn, I will have to focus on every single aspect to improve my performance.

"It's a life-changing opportunity for me, and I can't wait to move to Europe and begin this new adventure. I want to thank GreenEDGE Cycling for giving me this opportunity, and I'll do all I can to pay them back for the trust they are putting in me."
