Italian Time Trial champion Matteo Sobrero adds firepower to Team BikeExchange for 2022 & 2023 

Italian Time Trial champion Matteo Sobrero will join Team BikeExchange from 2022, for two seasons, bringing strength and adding depth to the squad, bolstering the team’s ‘engine room’ and putting the Australian outfit into contention in the time trial discipline.
 
Despite being just 24-years-old, the rider from Alba has shown great maturity and gained a lot of experience throughout his short career, performing to the highest level on various WorldTour teams, with GreenEDGE Cycling now motivated to help develop the Italian further, seeing him as a great fit for the squad.
 
Brent Copeland, General Manager on Sobrero
“I am extremely happy to announce that Matteo will join our team for the next two seasons. I have been following his performances in the last period and I am not surprised with his exceptional achievements, winning the national title this year, especially since the opponents in this competition in Italy was of top quality, with the likes of Fillipo Ganna and others.
 
Matteo is still young, and we are going to support him in the best way possible to optimise his performances and continue his development. Matteo’s addition fits into a perfect area of the team where we were looking at investing in and with his inclusion, we are sure that bringing him to the team will be a very important reinforcement for us for the next seasons.”
 
Matteo Sobrero
“From the outside I have always seen GreenEDGE Cycling as a solid team, and to be able to join it in this moment of my career, I strongly believe this is a good opportunity for me. This is also because they have always been competitive in time trials therefore, I truly believe it is a good fit for me and for my characteristics.
 
I have been also asking some friends of mine who have been on or are still on the team, like Edoardo Affini and Alex Konychev, and they all told me it is a great environment to work in.
 
Since I started to talk with Brent, I was quite sure and motivated to join the team and here we are now. The team is also investing in young riders, and it always has done. This is an important moment of my career, and I am sure it’s the right moment to join Team BikeExchange. I can’t wait to begin this new chapter of my career.”
