Caleb Ewan extends with ORICA-BikeExchange

by CyclingTips

Australian sprinter Caleb Ewan will remain with the ORICA-BikeExchange for the next two years. The 22-year-old already has a Grand Tour stage win at the 2015 Vuelta a Espana and won two stages at the Santos Tour Down Under this year.

“I’m really excited to be able to stay with the team, I feel like I have progressed really well here,” Ewan said. “I’m definitely getting stronger and I’m thankful for all the help and support the team has given me to get even better. In terms of goals, I’m happy to continue my development, to get even more Grand Tour experience and go up against the big names there.”

Sport director Matt White said the team recognizes Ewan is still a developing talent and will work to take his talents to the next level.

“Caleb is still young, but we are well aware that he is ready to take the next steps in his career and we are happy to be part of that,” White said. “It is really exciting to work with such a great talent who has already won significant races for us at a very young age.”

“We take great pride in creating the best possible environment for our riders and with Caleb we have seen that he is progressing really well within our framework.
