Michael Matthews

Stage winner at all 3 grand tours

The most notable addition to Team Sunweb for 2017 comes to the team with 33 race wins in the professional ranks. This 26-year-old Australian is a world-class sprinter who can also climb and battle for breakaways. He's well-suited to stage races, classics and other major one-day races. A few of his standout results include stage wins at all three grand tours—the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a España—and a silver medal at the 2015 UCI Road World Championships. 

“I am very happy with my transfer to Team Sunweb," Matthews said at the start of the season."I have always admired the way the team approaches the sport as a team sport. The team has a proven strategy and I’m confident that I will be able to continue my development as a rider within this team.”

It promises to be an exciting season for Matthews, who has a number of big goals including the green jersey at the Tour de France. So when the racing heats up, and the sprinters line up to battle at the finish, keep an eye out for the man they call "Bling."
