The young Australian is now into his third season with the team and looks to build on his previous development in 2020.

“I like the accomplishment of improving myself. If I can get personal bests in certain power numbers, or if I can get better results in races, or even if I can hang on as long as possible on a climb – I just want to keep improving bit by bit as a rider.”

2019 saw Michael complete his second Vuelta a España, an experience that he both enjoyed and wants to take with him into the coming years.

“I really enjoyed the experience of having success in a Grand Tour with the team. Having the leaders jersey for a few days and the guys getting stage wins was great to be a part of. It was rewarding knowing that I helped towards those things.”

It was Michael’s older brother that got him into the sport of cycling after he previously did athletics then triathlon. Starting racing bikes at the age of 12, he immediately fell in love with the sport although he jokingly admits that it actually took him quite a while to learn how to ride a bike properly.

A fan of the competitive side of the sport, Michael also likes the simplicity of just going out on his bike and exploring new places while training, spending time with his own thoughts in some beautiful scenery.

A self-confessed introvert, Michael spends his time off the bike either reading, watching Netflix, hiking or spending time with his girlfriend. He has also taken up cooking more recently and makes a mean Thai green curry.
