  • Under-23 European time trial champion Affini joins Mitchelton-Scott

    Under-23 European time trial champion Edoardo Affini will join Mitchelton-Scott in 2019, having signed a two-year contract with the Australian WorldTour team.

    The 22-year-old – who is also the U23 Italian road and time trial champion – joins from the Dutch SEG Racing Academy, where he's spent the past two seasons.

    "It's really amazing to be given the opportunity to turn professional with one of the best teams in the world like Mitchelton-Scott," said Affini on the team's website. "It is definitely a dream come true for me.

    "I'm excited to see what the future will bring, and I think that here I have a great chance to start a new chapter and continue to expand on the development started two years ago with SEG Racing Academy. I can't wait to get started."

    This season, Affini also won the prologue time trial at the U23 Giro d'Italia in June, and went on to take the individual time trial title at the Mediterranean Games later that month.

    While happy to take advantage of the Italian's time trialling abilities, Mitchelton-Scott are also keen to introduce Affini to their Classics squad.
