Having joined the professional peloton back in 2012, then titled Orica GreenEDGE, Australian WorldTour team Mitchelton-SCOTT continues to compete as one of the best ranked teams in the world, and for 2018 will again be traveling with Scicon Bags.
In 2018, the Mitchelton-SCOTT men’s team hits the road with a strengthen squad once again aiming to challenge in the classics, the Grand Tours, and all other races in between as they travel the world for their race and training program. Alongside the men are women’s and continental teams, each competing internationally at the highest level.
On these travels, the team can rely on a fleet of Scicon AeroComfort 3.0 TSA bike travel bags to keep their Scott road and time trial bikes safe and secure, while minimising the time needed to continually pack and unpack so many bikes. As well as looking after the bikes, SCICON will have the technical bag needs of the riders and staff covered with a range of products including the team’s custom Scicon Race Rain Bags, Medical Bags and Soigneur Bags.
Performance Director Kevin Tabotta said: “In a world where we are constantly traveling to all corners of the globe from one cycling race to the next, there is not much sense in having the fastest bikes in the World unless these bikes arrive in pristine condition. SCICON offer us the ultimate solution with top bike protection, in a lightweight, fast and simple to use system. With SCICON, we can eliminate nasty surprises at airport baggage collection. That keeps our team mechanics smiling too!”
Leading the team’s stage race GC hopes this season are the young trio of Esteban Chaves, and twins Adam and Simon Yates. The team has added firepower from the Italian, Matteo Trentin, who himself took seven race wins in 2017. Pocket-rocket Caleb Ewan gives the team more options for the fast finishes, while up coming riders such as Alexander Edmondson, recently crowned Australian Road Race Champion, complete a well-rounded roster.
