ORICA-BikeExchange continued their excellent history in the Road World Championships today by taking third place in the elite men’s team time trial to take home the Bronze medal in Doha, Qatar.
The Australian outfit crossed the line in 43minutes and nine seconds for the pan flat 40kilometre course, producing an outstanding performance in the heat of the desert behind winner Etixx-Quickstep.
Every member of the six-man team contributed, with Sport director Matt White praising the efforts of the squad and hailing their achievement.
“Really great result and an outstanding effort from the team today,” said White. “Everyone stepped up to another level as soon as we were down the ramp especially Michael Hepburn and Luke Durbridge.”
