Luke Durbridge's career in the WorldTour spans as long as that of his team, Mitchelton-Scott. In 2012, he joined the then Orica GreenEdge cycling team in its inaugural outing at the sport's top tier, and Durbridge has remained with the Australian outfit since. 

On the road, he enters his ninth season at the top with just one bike: the Scott Addict RC

Such is Mitchelton-Scott's confidence in Scott's latest carbon road bike, they've shunned the brand's dedicated aero bike, the Foil, in favour of using a single bike for all riders, at all races, on all terrains. This move sees Mitchelton-Scott join Movistar, Lotto Soudal and Bahrain McLaren in committing to disc brakes for the season ahead.

Durbridge has already picked up a win in this 2020 season, taking the National Time Trial Championships for the fourth time. Durbridge will be hoping to put his big engine to good use with a result at Opening Weekend, in what the purists might argue is the start proper of the 2020 season. 

Durbridge's Scott Addict RC is specced with Shimano Dura-Ace components, including the brand's Dura-Ace C40 tubular wheels, which will be shod with Pirelli P-Zero Velo tubular tyres. 

There's also Shimano's range-topping Dura-Ace R9170 groupset. When we caught up with it at the Tour Down Under, Durbridge's bike was fitted with a climbing shifter. 

Scott's component subsidiary, Syncros, provide much of the finishing kit, including the saddle, proprietary seatpost, and integrated handlebar, which is fitted with an out-front mount housing his Garmin Edge 1030 and, should he wish, a GoPro.
