“If I can get a few possibilities here and there, that would be great too, but I first of all want to pay back the faith the team has shown me by working for the sprinters they’ve signed.”

Adam Blythe will return to the WorldTour in 2015 as Orica-GreenEDGE has announced the signing of the fast Brit. He is expected to play a crucial role in the team's lead-out train.

 

2014 Prudential RideLondon–Surrey Classic champion Adam Blythe will join ORICA-GreenEDGE next season having signed with the team for one year.

 

The 24-year-old sprinter will form a crucial part of the team’s lead-out train as they work to develop and deliver young riders Caleb Ewan and Magnus Cort who will officially join the outfit as neo-pros next season.

 

The move to ORICA-GreenEDGE will mark a return to UCI WorldTour level for Blythe, who is this year riding for Continental team NFTO Pro Cycling having previously raced for BMC Racing and Omega Pharma-Lotto.

 

Blythe joins Adam and Simon Yates as the third British rider in the Australian outfit.

 

“I’m obviously super excited to join a team at this level and above all to become part of ORICA-GreenEDGE,” Blythe said.

 

“Everyone I know there speaks extremely highly of the structure and the atmosphere and that’s something I can’t wait to become a part of.” 

 

The former track rider said he is looking forward to contributing to the success of the team.

 

“I would really like to get up there in the cobbled classics, but I’m also really keen to become part of a successful team in general and I would take huge pride in helping some of the faster guys as a part of the lead-out train,” Blythe said.

 

“If I can get a few possibilities here and there, that would be great too, but I first of all want to pay back the faith the team has shown me by working for the sprinters they’ve signed.” 

 

Sport director Matt White welcomed Blythe on board, emphasising his importance in the team’s objectives going forward. 

 

“Adam will be a great addition to the team on several fronts,” White said.

 

“He is certainly capable of being up and going for the win himself – especially in the cobbled races, but he will also be a very important part of our lead-out train. 

 

“With the additions of Magnus Cort and Caleb Ewan next year, it will be even more crucial to get our lead-out right. Adam is a sprinter himself and that’s exactly would you need in that position to launch your guy for the win. 

 

“Above all, Adam is still very young. He turned pro at 19 and I’m convinced we’ll be able to give the right back up and program for his further progress.”
