Tanel Kangert will join Mitchelton-Scott in 2021 after signing a two-year contract with the Australian squad. The Estonian has spent the past two seasons at EF Pro Cycling and previously had a successful eight-year tenure at Astana, where he was one of Vincenzo Nibali’s most trusted domestiques.

“I was contacted quite a few years ago by the team and somehow it slipped away, but the project to me has always seemed interesting,” Kangert said of his move to Mitchelton-Scott.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
