An inaugural member of GreenEDGE Cycling, Michael Hepburn has proven to be an important member of the Team BikeExchange roster year after year, as a reliable and consistent rider across the 10-month racing calendar.
With this, the Australian outfit is pleased to see Hepburn sign on for two more years, with the 2022 season his 11th consecutive season with the Australian outfit.
The former Australian time trial champion has proven to be a valuable asset with his powerful strength on the flat roads, crucial for protecting and positioning the team leaders in the various Grand Tours and one-day Classic races throughout the lengthy season.
Brent Copeland, General Manager on Hepburn:
“Heppy is one of the key riders in GreenEDGE Cycling, he has been with us ten years, since day one of the team built by our team owner, Gerry Ryan. There was no doubt that he was going to stay with us, he is an important support rider and one of the guys that all the young riders look up to. He is a hard-working rider, one of the main riders in the team’s ‘engine room’ and riders with his attitude are always needed. Michael will play a key role in the team for many more years to come and we are pleased to continue our journey with him.”
“I’m really pleased to be staying with GreenEDGE for two more seasons. It’s been a great journey these past 10 years and I’m looking forward to continuing that. I know this team very well, the team understands me well, there are many great people in this organisation and it’s the right environment for me to be able to perform in.
It’s been a tough season for us on the results side and I’m very motivated to do my bit to help the team back to its winning ways. I’ll keep supporting our leaders at the biggest races on the calendar and I look forward to seeing what we can achieve together in 2022.”
