‘GreenEDGE Travel’ to give fans their own Backstage PassFri 9 Mar 2018
Tour with team Mitchelton-SCOTT and experience a cycling tour like a pro, with the pros!
Mitchelton-SCOTT is excited to announce the launch of GreenEDGE Travel, a new travel experience branch created in conjunction with Mummu Cycling, giving unprecedented insights at some of the world’s biggest races.
Already with 13 UCI victories and the current UCI WorldTour leader Daryl Impey, the 2018 season is shaping up to be an amazing year for Mitchelton-SCOTT and we want our fans closer to the action than ever before.
Unlike other operators, our tours are designed and led by former GreenEDGE pros with travel and logistics from one of the world’s most experienced cycling travel companies in Mummu Cycling.
17-time Tour de France finisher Stuart O’Grady and two-time Giro d’Italia stage winner Matthew Goss will lead the inaugural GreenEDGE Travel tour at this year’s Giro d’Italia where team Mitchelton-SCOTT will be chasing their first Grand Tour victory with Colombian Esteban Chaves and Great Britain’s Simon Yates.
Mitchelton-SCOTT owner, Gerry Ryan is looking forward to the new opportunity for fans to interact directly with the team.
“Whether you are on tour as a spectator or a riding guest you’re guaranteed the experience of a lifetime,” Mr Ryan said. “The access to the team, the riders and the staff, coupled with the knowledge from our ex pros leading the tours is unprecedented and we are looking forward to hosting our first group in May.”
There is no one more qualified from the past GreenEDGE rider list than former road captain, Stuart O’Grady, to host the inaugural tour in Italy.
“For me getting the opportunity to share my experiences, knowledge and behind the scenes access from my twenty-year career is something I’m really excited about,” O’Grady said. “They are fully guided tours so I get the opportunity to sit around after the day’s rides with the group to chat about the day, how the race is evolving and what to watch out for but more importantly, having been on the circuit for so many years I can also share my local knowledge outside of cycling.”
Inaugural Tour: Mitchelton-SCOTT for Pink at the Giro d’Italia
Designed for riders and spectators, this 12-day tour will have you in the heart of the action for the final eight stages. We will dine at the team hotel, ride with Gossy, learn strategy from Matt White, gain backstage access to the team bus and warm ups and celebrate with the team in Rome. All of this whilst experiencing the beauty of Italian food, wine and culture in Treviso, Venice, Bergamo, Trentino, Como and more.
