One of the team’s Australian talents, Jai Hindley is a climbing force to be reckoned with.
Previous winner of the Tour of Fuzhou, Jai came to Team Sunweb to continue his development into a future GC threat.
After a strong performance in the Vuelta a España, riding for leader Wilco Kelderman, the 22- year-old starts the 2019 season with real confidence.
“Finishing the Vuelta riding well and feeling strong is my greatest achievement on the bike. I felt good in the last few days in the mountains. I’d been working really hard, so it was nice to be able to ride with the top guys and ride relatively strong, and help the team as much as I could. That’s what motivates me – to be the best I can be on and off the bike – trying to achieve the best results I can.”
Jai describes himself as a typical Australian, laidback and funny, and simply loves the sport of cycling, having raced a mixture of track and road since he was young. At U19 level, he concentrated on the road, and the rest is history.
Off the bike, Jai loves watching films, but ONLY “good movies”. Whiplash is one of his favourites.
