Lachlan Norris could be a rider to watch. He won a stage of last year's Tour of Utah and has been getting stronger in recent years.

    Love it in theory. Interested to see how it plays out in practice. I may have missed it, but is part of the program that the team covers/contributes to tuition for each athlete’s required educational/vocational program? Or are the athletes on their own for that?

      I’m not sure re their teams arrangements, but mostly Aus students have no direct upfront tuition…

      • Dave

        And on top of that, Australian universities are generally very willing to make special arrangements for athletes which are not available to normal students. Even in the more highly-paid pro sports here, you’ll often find in excess of half a team’s list taking some sort of part-time uni course.

        I could see one of the more modern universities here offering scholarships as a form of sponsorship for this team – maybe UniSA which already puts up the cash for CA to have a national team at the TDU and has a number of Euro-based pro riders taking courses externally.

        Good to know. Thanks.

    Why oh why would you get involved with Vaughters! bad move Drapac

    • Dave

      Should offer a good opportunity if any of these student riders want to take courses in applied chemistry.

      I wonder if Michael Drapac is doing this with an eye to a future merger of the top level teams? It’s not a secret that he wants his names at the top races, and merging his self-sponsored team with an existing WorldTour team which has just dropped back to one naming rights sponsor would be the way to do it.

        My spies tell me the pro tour team will be Drapac/Cannondale or the other way round with Pat’s Veg the feeder team.
