After an outstanding breakthrough season in 2020, Grace Brown (Team BikeExchange) is planning on taking her opportunity to lead the Australian team in the Spring Classics.

The 28-year-old won Brabantse Pijl last season and finished second in Liège-Bastogne-Liège behind Lizzie Diegnan but she was also consistent throughout the reconfigured Classics season with a string of strong performances. With Annemiek van Vleuten now at Movistar the Australian is looking to fill the void and lead her team into the Classics and one-day arena.
