Mezgec signs on for two more years at home with Team BikeExchange-Jayco

Slovenian lead-out man Luka Mezgec has agreed to a new two-year contract with Team BikeExchange-Jayco, which will see the 34-year-old bring his time with the Australian outfit to nine years. 
The rider from Kranj has proven himself, time and time again, as one of the most reliable lead-out riders in the WorldTour peloton, and as GreenEDGE Cycling looks to the future to continue developing the depth of its sprint group, Mezgec will continue to play a crucial role in this area, bringing his wealth of experience and skills.
With young up and coming sprint talents added to the roster for 2023, plus sprint team leader Dylan Groenewegen, the Australian squad is excited for what the future holds, with many more opportunities to challenge in sprint finishes across the calendar and is pleased to see Mezgec continue to be a part of this. 
Brent Copeland – General Manager
“Luka is one of the most reliable riders we have on the team, and we are very happy to see that he will continue with us for two more seasons and that he is very motivated and a big part of our future vision, as we develop our sprint team. 
With the knowledge and experience Luka has, from riding with our team for the past seven years and from his previous experience and success, he will continue to be a key and valued member and a rider that the younger generation can learn from, and be guided by.” 

Luka Mezgec
“With Dylan joining our team this season, I found myself in a much clearer role. Helping one of the best sprinters in the world is both a joy and a big responsibility – which I love. 

Working with the full sprint train this season has been very different to previous years and also a big challenge for me as a rider who often makes plans for the sprints, because the plans are much more complex now than before. But I love this challenge, and that was one of the main reasons I wanted to stay here. 

Obviously after already seven years with the GreenEDGE family, it feels like home and it’s amazing to see all the positive energy and dedication of every single person working with the team.”
