‘Bling’ returns to the team in 2021 and the Australian will be looking to pick up where he left off in 2016 as he targets the Classics and stage race victories. The 2010 U23 road world champion is among the few sprinters to have won stages in all three Grand Tours and also claimed the coveted Green Jersey at the 2017 Tour de France.

Matthews racked up 18 victories in addition to a silver medal at the 2015 World Championships during his first spell with the team and has proven to be one of the most versatile sprinters in the peloton.
