Zdeněk Štybar strengthens Team BikeExchange-Jayco’s roster for the 2023 season

Team BikeExchange-Jayco is delighted to confirm the signing of experienced all-rounder Zdeněk Štybar for the 2023 season, with the rider from the Czech Republic set to lift the Australian outfit in the Classic and one-day races.
With many of the team’s older, more experienced riders retiring, Štybar comes in to fill the role as a seasoned professional, assisting teammates with his abundance of knowledge and previous success. 

Helping to guide the younger generation and act as a team captain on the road is an important and crucial role, and the squad believe with Štybar they have found the perfect fit. 
Brent Copeland – General Manager
“We’ve already strengthened our roster for the 2023 season in many areas and now, with the addition of Zdeněk Štybar we have a very complete and well-rounded team. His list of results and performances in a wide range of races speak for themselves, we know what we are getting with him, and it is very exciting and motivating to be adding such a rider to our squad. 
We have had quite a lot of changes over the past years and with many of our older experienced riders moving on, it was very important for us to make sure we continue to include seasoned professionals that know the races and the peloton inside out, to lead the team, and also assist the up-and-coming generation. 
Štybar is so diverse as a rider as we have seen over the years, he can perform in all types of races and not only on the road but also cyclo-cross, so we will look to also support him in that area too.”

“This is something very special for me to change team in the final part of my career. I had great time with my previous team, but I am very excited for this new season with Team BikeExchange-Jayco. The group of people seem very strong together, both the environment and the winning mentally. I am ready to begin this new chapter and I am sure it will be very special for me.
I am also curious to race on different material and working with Giant will be a great opportunity for me, they are such a big player in our market and I am excited to try their products. These changes will give me extra motivation to keep performing and to fight with the best riders in the peloton. It will be a big boost of energy for me. 
My goals will be to be the best I can be at every race. Of course, the Belgium Classics will be key events for me and I am looking forward to competing there with my new colours,  but I’m also ready to help younger riders in the team and share my experience and knowledge with them. I believe this is an important duty at this stage of my career and I am very happy to do so.”
