Teams history:


Jai Hindley worked his way from Western Australia, first racing in Europe as a 17 year old for the Australian national team then securing a spot on Continental team Attaque Team Gusto in 2016, where he came fifth overall at the Tour de l’Avenir, before moving to the Mitchelton-Scott development team in 2017. There he took his first UCI victories, winning both a stage and the overall at the Tour of Fuzhou and came second overall at the Herald Sun Tour.

The move to the WorldTour came in 2018 with Team Sunweb where after solid opening seasons he then shot to prominence in 2020. Early season he delivered two stage victories at the Jayco Herald Sun Tour and claimed the overall as well. Hindley then finished the COVID-19 interrupted season with a breakthrough performance at the Giro d’Italia. The rider from Perth won stage 18 and shifted into the maglia rosa on the second last day of racing. The time trial didn’t run in his favour, with Tao Geoghegan Hart claiming the overall race victory by 39 seconds, but Hindley held on to second overall. It was a result that heralded his arrival as a serious GC challenger.

2021 turned out to be a tough year, with injuries and illness, an abandon at the Giro d’Italia and a number of other races too. However, 2022 bought a switch to Bora-Hansgrohe and was a year of bouncing back.

In 2022 Hindley steadily climbed up the overall rankings at the Giro d’Italia, again finding himself in the pink leader’s jersey on the second last day of competition with just the individual time trial standing between him and Grand Tour victory. This time, however, he wasn’t letting go of the top spot and became the first Australian to claim the maglia rosa.

The 2022 victor didn’t defend his title in 2023, instead opting to take on his first Tour de France. There Hindley stepped into the yellow jersey for a day after he won stage 5 and he ultimately finished in seventh place overall.
