GreenEdge have been in the WorldTour peloton since 2012, winning Milan-San Remo, Paris-Roubaix, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Il Lombardia, as well as claiming overall victory in the 2018 Vuelta a España through Simon Yates. The team have always had a strong spine of Australian riders, but the Yates brothers and Esteban Chaves have led the line in the Grand Tours over the years.

After the collapse of Manuela Fundación’s bid to buy the team’s naming rights last summer, founding manager Shayne Bannan and Alvaro Crespi left and were replaced by Brent Copeland and Darach McQuaid. Gerry Ryan, who has bankrolled the team since their inception, has confirmed that he will continue his backing for another two years.
