Since joining the team in 2017, Matthews has tasted success at a variety of races; including stage wins and the green jersey at the Tour de France, plus impressive victories in the Canadian one-day races last year. A versatile and extremely talented rider who comes from the world’s best, Matthews can also hunt for a good result on the uphills and difficult finales. The 28-year-old is a team player who is always prepared to help others and Team Sunweb are looking forward to continuing Matthews’ growth as a rider over the next two years, with the Australian staying with the team until the end of 2021.
“I’m really happy to be staying with Team Sunweb for another two years,” said Matthews. “I’ve already had an amazing two and a half years with the team, with lots of great memories. I think this is a good environment for me to develop and I can’t wait to make even more memories with our big family in Team Sunweb.”
Team Sunweb coach Luke Roberts added: “We’re delighted to extend our agreement with Michael; it has been a really successful journey over the past two and a half seasons with quite some highlights. Michael’s professional work ethic fits very well to the philosophy in the team, he’s always very motivated to give his all towards the team’s shared goals. Together I am sure we will share many more successes on the road ahead as we continue to grow and develop together.”
