A constant deliverer on the world’s biggest stage, ‘Gerro’ has proved the team’s most consistent winner across it's first three full seasons. 

Prior to his time at ORICA-GreenEDGE, Simon was the first Australian rider to win a stage at each of the three Grand Tours – the Tour de France (2008), The Giro d’Italia (2009) and Vuelta a Espana (2009). 

Since joining the team, the two-time Australian champion has won a subsequent Tour de France stage and worn the coveted yellow jersey, won the Milano-Sanremo, Liege-Bastogne-Liege, a world championship silver medal, two Tour Down Under general classifications and more!
