A silver medal at the 2011 world championships just behind Mark Cavendish was a sign of his top end speed and it capped off a successful year which saw him become the first Australian to win Milan-San Remo. During his time with the WorldTour team, the 27-year-old failed to kick on from his time at HTC but was also hampered by bad luck.
"We have twenty six guys locked in and there are only a couple of guys leaving the team with one of them being Matthew Goss," he said.
In 2012 Goss claimed a second career Giro d'Italia stage win but it was the only time that season he celebrated a victory. 2013 was also to prove a barren year with a solitary stage win at Tirreno-Adriatico in March but as a member of the Tour de France team, Goss was part of the team time trial victory in Nice.
In January, Goss won the Eastern Gardens Criterium at the Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic which remains his sole victory of the season. Goss was not selected in any of the three grand tours by GreenEdge but did ride the Tour of California in May where he had four top-ten finishes.
The Pro-Continental team MTN-Qhubeka have confirmed its interest in Goss along with Steve Cummings (BMC) and Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Sharp).
