Cape Town - Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung has announced that Australian
Matthew Goss will join Team MTN-Qhubeka for the 2015 cycling season.
Goss is an exceptional bike rider who has won races in multiple World Tour
events, including stages of the Giro d' Italia, Tirreno-Adriatico and
Paris-Nice. The victory that really stands out on Goss' palmares though, is his
2011 Milano-Sanremo triumph.
While Goss is a seasoned professional having spent his last 8 years racing
on World Tour teams, the Aussie star at only 27 years of age, has his best
racing years ahead of him. The experience and fire power that Goss brings to
MTN-Qhubeka compliments our team goals for 2015 as we target the Spring
Classics and Grand Tours. The following Goss has around the world will also
help us to further globalise our team in support of the Qhubeka foundation.
"I am very excited to be joining Africa’s Pro-Continental outfit, Team
MTN-Qhubeka. I think that the foundations and ideas that the team is built on
are really inspiring and motivating. Racing and winning as a team, for the
sponsors and myself while helping to raise awareness for a great foundation
like Qhubeka. I can’t wait to make the most of this opportunity, to win at the
highest level throughout the Spring Classics and grand tours.
"The team being built for 2015 is going to be a fantastic team with
great depth, strength and motivation. I come with a lot of experience racing at
highest level over the past 8 years and i'm excited to share my knowledge with
the new generation of up and coming African riders. I look forward to working
with the many other strong riders already part of Team MTN-Qhubeka and the
riders joining for 2015," said Goss."Matthew Goss is a great addition to our strong focus on the Spring
Classics and grand tours next year, he has worked for some of the best
sprinters in the world and has won many significant races too. This commitment
to team work and team success is what will help Team MTN-Qhubeka become more
successful and bring our more than 50% African rider group to a higher lever as
we continue to race for the #BicyclesChangeLives campaign," said team
principal Douglas Ryder.
