Mitchelton-Scott announced that Luka Mezgec has accepted a two-year contract renewal that will see him racing with the WorldTour team through 2022. The Slovenian said he is looking forward to working closely with a returning Michael Matthews in the sprints next year.

"My last five years was like a dream to be a professional cyclist and all this was because of the relationships we have here between each other - devotion, work ethics, freedom and trust. We push each other’s limits and we are doing this with having a lot of fun in the process," said Mezgec, who joined the then-Orica-BikeExchange team in 2016.
