Say hello to Pieter. The Dutchman shot to prominence in the cycling world when he beat Andreas Klöden in an uphill finish to win stage eight of the 2005 Tour de France.

Pieter has spent his entire career to date with the Dutch Rabobank squad and comes to GreenEDGE with a wealth of experience gained at the world’s biggest races with one of the sport’s best-known teams.

He has ridden the Tour de France four times, the Vuelta a España on three occasions and the Giro d’Italia twice; it was at Italy’s national tour that he won his second grand tour stage, taking out the tough fifth stage of the 2011 edition in Orvieto and wearing the leader’s jersey for several days.

Despite still only being 30 years old, Pieter will be one of the guiding lights for the Australian squad in some of the season’s biggest races. He looks forward to embracing this new challenge.

Pieter calls the 12-years his spent at Rabobank to be a ‘true privilege’ and extends a sincere thanks to the opportunities given to him by his country’s biggest team.
Two stage victories – a team time trial and individual stage – at the 2014 Giro d’Italia highlighted Pieter’s most successful season to date and added to his stage win at the Italian three-week Tour back in 2011.
In addition to his own victories, Pieter is also a vital contributor to other ORICA-GreenEDGE successes demonstrated by his efforts in the final kilometres to deliver a win to teammate Simon Gerrans at the 2014 Liege-Bastogne-Liege.
