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.
