Mitchelton-Scott have confirmed the senior management changes revealed by Cyclingnews on Tuesday, with Brent Copeland leaving Bahrain McLaren to fill the role of general manager, while former commercial adviser Darach McQuaid becomes chairman, a new role that will have a direct liaison with team owner Gerry Ryan.

The shake-up comes after the failed takeover of the Australian WorldTour team by the little-known Spanish non-profit Manuela Fundación. Co-founder and team manager Shayne Bannan, along with experienced management figure Álvaro Crespi have left the squad, with Ryan moving quickly to bring Copeland and McQuaid onboard from July 1.
