Interview: Morton eyes Garmin-Cervelo upgrade in the future

Australia’s Lachlan Morton, 19, turned heads after winning Canada’s prestigious Junior race, the Tour de l’Abitibi last year and riding into a seventh place overall at the Tour of Utah. This year, he took his young career one step further and rode into a sixth place overall at the UCI 2.HC Le Tour de Langkawi in Malaysia. He also made a distinct impact on the US domestic racing scene for his climbing prowess during many of the National Racing Calendar (NRC) stage races including the Tour of the Gila and the Cascade Cycling Classic. Now in his second season with Jonathan Vaughters’ UCI Continental Chipotle Development team, he is hoping to make the jump to its ProTeam counterpart Garmin-Cervelo in the near future.
