Meet Svein. The gritty Canadian brings a wealth of experience to the GreenEDGE squad. Svein joins us from the Canadian Pro Continental team Spidertech and looks forward to a move back up to the WorldTour after riding for Garmin in 2009 and 2010.
Svein’s personal ambitions lie in shorter stages races in which time trials strongly factor into the overall. He will once again focus on the race against the clock at the World Championships. The 2012 London Olympics present him with another major objective. Outside of the TT, Svein is ready to be a workhorse for the team.
Svein believes he has much to offer the new Australian squad that he calls fully capable of winning the hardest races in the world.
