Headlining the new signings for 2017 is the formidable sprint duo of Scott Sunderland and Jesse Kerrision.

Sunderland is fresh off a massive win at the Shimano Super Crit where he beat a plethora of Australia’s best sprinters including Caleb Ewan, Steele Von Hoff, Brenton Jones and Mark Renshaw. Sunderland has successfully transitioned from the track after winning Commonwealth Games gold, numerous track world championships and world cups. Shedding more than 20 kilos Sunderland proved his road ability with a break out win at the 2015 Warny proving he not only had the speed but the endurance to succeed on the road.

Scott Sunderland

It’s great to get the win in such a quality field heading into the most important time of the year with my new team. I absolutely love racing on my Cervelo S5, the bike is a serious weapon. I’m stoked to be racing on Cervelo next year.

Jesse Kerrison

The 22 year old Kerrison has age on his side and is a pure sprinter in the same vein as Sunderland. Unlike Sunderland he has spent the majority of his time on the road having ridden for BMC development team in 2015. The winner of the recent Noosa Criterium has collected sprint victories in stages of the big Asian tours, National Road Series and is the reigning under 23 national criterium champion.

The Director

Andrew Christie-Johnston is buoyant about the new additions to the sprint stocks Both Jesse and Scott are world class. These two paired up with guys like Neil Van Der Ploeg and Anthony Giacoppo will be hard to beat. he said. People think that having two pure sprinters like Jesse and Scott can be a bad thing but when you look at our calendar and realise that most of the time we are running two concurrent programs it’s easy to see they will both have plenty of opportunity.

A strong group of new riders will add additional fire power to the already formidable squad. Rio Olympian in Scott Bowden joins the team after his decision to concentrate on road. Bowden is a solid climber with a lot of potential and will follow on from past mountain bikers Nathan Haas, Steele Von Hoff and Jack Haig who have all used the team as a stepping stone into the world tour. 2016 Melbourne to Warnambool winner Nathan Elliot, Jeremy Cameron and U19 World’s Representative Alistair Christie-Johnston round out the roster.
