Meet Matt. The Melbourne native has long been regarded as one of the best domestiques in Grand Tours and shorter stage races alike. He’s also a vital teammate in the classics where GreenEDGE picks Matt to help the team make an impact in 2012.
The 2004 National Road Champion is as respected for his results as he is for his attitude. Matt has become known for his ability to provide the glue a team needs to forge bonds, foster trust and, ultimately, succeed.
It hasn’t always been an easy ride for the 34-year-old. Matt endured the trials and tribulations of Unibet.com. Politically wrangling within the organizations almost forced him to call time on his career early. After two seasons with Garmin-Cervélo, he’s ready to continue with another phase in his career.
"I’ve come full circle, as I started with Shayne on the U23 Australian team 14 years ago. With Shayne, Neil and Gerry on board, I have complete faith in the future of the team."
