Matt Goss set to join One Pro Cycling in 2016
Australian sprinter Matt Goss is set to ride for One Pro Cycling in 2016.
CyclingTips understands the 28-year-old has agreed to a deal with the British Continental outfit founded by former England cricketer Matt Prior.
It is understood the agreement will be officially announced after the inaugural Abu Dhabi Tour in which Goss is currently competing with MTN –Qhubeka.
The 2011 Milan-San Remo champion has there confirmed he will not stay with the South Africa-based team, which has signed former Highroad teammates Mark Cavendish, Mark Renshaw and Bernhard Eisel for next year. Goss has spent one season with MTN-Qhubeka.
Goss would join compatriot and fellow fast-man Steele von Hoff at One if he were to transfer.
Since its inception in February One has achieved some seven victories on the UK domestic circuit and has applied for a Pro Continental licence for next season, which would make it eligible for wildcard invitations to Grand Tours.
Goss, a two-time Giro d’Italia stage winner, has had a quiet season with MTN-Qhubeka, his best result being an eighth place finish on stage five of the Tour of California in May.
One would be the fifth team of his career following stints at CSC, with which he turned professional in 2007, Highroad, ‘home’ squad Orica-GreenEdge, which he spearheaded, and MTN-Qhubeka.
