Mitchelton-Scott arrived at the season opener in Australia as the only WorldTour team still equipped with their 2017 bikes. However, it hasn’t stopped last year’s serial stage winner Caleb Ewan returning to a similar level of form and taking victory on a tough stage 2 into Stirling.

The Mitchelton-Scott mechanics confirmed to BikeRadar that their 2018 bikes wouldn’t be ready until the team’s opening race in Europe. Despite a new title sponsor for this season, long-term title sponsor Orica remains on the forks of the Scott Foil.

Also for 2018, the team will be switching from long-term power meter supplier SRM, to a Shimano R9100-P crankset unit. Cam Meyer is the only rider on the Mitchelton-Scott Tour Down Under squad to have the new power meter paired with his bike.

The aerodynamic Scott Foil frame, Shimano Dura-Ace R9150 groupset and R9100 wheels, Continental tyres and Syncros finishing kit will all stay with the WorldTour squad for the season.

Caleb Ewan’s Syncros RR1.0 SL handlebar/stem cockpit system receives a splash of fluoro yellow colour, and the young Australian’s name adorns the stem.
