One of the team’s most prolific winners, Michael excels in the more difficult sprint days on the road where his climbing ability and punchy finish is hard to match. 
Known to many as ‘Bling’, in 2014 Michael won stages and wore the leader’s jersey in both Grand Tours he started – the Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a Espana – including a stage win whilst wearing the pink jersey in Italy.  Injuries sustained from a training crash kept him out of his debut Tour de France in 2014, but he will be back ready to fire in 2015.
