✍🏼 Australian trio Durbridge, Hamilton & Scotson commit to Team BikeExchange-Jayco through to 2024

An Australian trio of Luke Durbridge, Lucas Hamilton and Callum Scotson have confirmed their commitment to Team BikeExchange-Jayco, signing new two-year contracts to see them through to 2024, as three important and core members of the squad.
 
Durbridge, one of the inaugural riders on the team, having joined the Australian outfit in its first season back in 2012, will see his new contract take his tenure with GreenEDGE Cycling to 13 seasons. ‘Durbo’ has been one of the squad’s key domestiques over the years, with no less than eight Tour de France appearances, confirming his selfless and hardworking nature and his consistency as a rider to deliver over a variety of terrain.
 
Hamilton, a 26-year-old talented climber, has gone from strength to strength over the past five years since turning professional with Team BikeExchange-Jacyo back in 2017, and has displayed his climbing pedigree on multiple occasions at the biggest races on the calendar. A rider with a lot of potential to succeed himself, but also as a hardworking teammate, Lucas will continue to be a big part of the squad’s future, as it looks to target more success in Grand Tours and hilly stage races across the calendar.
 
Finally, Scotson, one of the team’s crucial members of the ‘engine room’, has continued to be a key foundation of many successful team line-ups as a powerhouse on the flat, assisting with sprint finishes and also a strong climber in his own right. As he begins his fifth season with GreenEDGE Cycling, the squad is confident that there is still a lot more to unleash within Scotson and value him as an important member for the future seasons.
 
Brent Copeland – General Manager
“Re-signing these three Australian riders, Durbridge, Hamilton and Scotson was very important for us as an organisation as they have all proven to be key members of the team, on and off the bike, as hardworking teammates but also for achieving results in their own right. These three riders all have very different strengths and are very versatile riders that are very much valued on this team.
 
Durbridge is one of the original riders to join GreenEDGE Cycling, he has been here from the start, and he knows the ins and outs of the organisation and has developed so much over the years, becoming one of the more experienced riders on the team. Hamilton and Scotson are still both young and we believe they both have a lot more left to give. As we look to the future, as GreenEDGE Cycling begins its 12th season in the WorldTour, we are very happy to continue to work with these three Australian riders that keep our culture and hardworking ethic very much alive.”
 
Luke Durbridge
“This team is like home for me, I have been here since the start in 2012 and it is really special to continue for two more years. I thoroughly enjoy working with all the staff and riders in the team through all the highs and the lows, and the team has been supporting me every season. Team BikeExchange-Jayco is changing and continuing to get stronger with the likes of Groenewegen joining and boosting the sprint team even more and I am looking forward to continuing to be a part of the team’s success in the sprints, time trials and Grand Tours. We have big ambitions for the next two years.”
 
Lucas Hamilton
“I am really happy to be re-signing for the next two years with Team BikeExchange-Jayco, I have been with this team since I was an under 23 rider and I would really like to try and keep progressing in the general classification realm at Grand Tours. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing but in the next couple years in this team, with its support, I am really excited to see what we can do together. I love the people in this team, and I am happy to be able to stay and continue working with them into the future.”
 
Callum Scotson
“I’m very happy to stay, over the last four years the team has had a lot of belief in me and supported me to keep improving. Recently I’ve been happy with my ability to support the team in the big races, like at the Giro d’Italia earlier this year, so over the next two years I aim to continue that. If I can find some personal success along the way, then that would be really nice too.”
