Say hello to Tomas. Although the multiple time Lithuanian national champion is often considered a time trialist, GreenEDGE hired him as an important part of the support network for the team’s Classics contenders.

Tomas relishes the worker’s role. While he gets much satisfaction out of helping a teammate cross the line in first place, he also is eager to look for some of his own prospects this year.

With a Grand Tour stage win to his credit, Tomas’ credentials are first rate. Couple his results with his experience on some of the world’s biggest teams, and Tomas will surely be an asset during the inaugural season of Australia’s first WorldTour team.
"I loved the national pride at Astana and you could see the same pride among Australians, even on different teams. Putting them on one team, with some other riders with a similar attitude will make a great combination."
