Tinkoff-Saxo have extended Jay McCarthy's contract. The Australian will get the chance to continue his development with the Russian team in the 2015 season.

 

Tinkoff-Saxo is pleased to announce that the team has extended the contract with Jay McCarthy. The 21-year old Australian has inked a one-year deal keeping him on the team ahead of the ambitious 2015-season. Team manager Bjarne Riis, who brought McCarthy to the team in 2013, is glad to keep the young talent on the squad.
 
"For me it was obvious Jay McCarthy should continue. He proved in the last week of the Giro that he could achieve the level we had signed him for a couple of years ago. He had a number of very good stages in the Giro, and after that he went on performing well”, says Bjarne Riis and continues:
 
“He is still a very young guy and has to improve on many things but he now has a chance to continue next year and work on those areas. I look forward to following his progress”.
 
McCarthy, who turns 22 on September 8th, was picked up by Tinkoff-Saxo ahead of the 2013-season after a very successful 2012 with 6 victories on his native Team Jayco. McCarthy has since then progressed steadily on WorldTour-level offering support for the team captains in various races. Among his most noticeable results is a 3rd place on a long breakaway stage in the Giro.
 
“I’m, of course, very excited about continuing next year. I feel that I’ve had a good development during the last two seasons and I learned a lot from racing with my teammates as well as receiving great support and guidance from the team’s staff”, says Jay McCarthy.
 
The young Aussie, who’s heading with the team to Canada for the two one-day WorldTour races in Montréal and Québec, is looking to finish of the season strongly while preparing for the ambitious 2015-season.
 
“We’re going to have a very strong team in 2015, also with the additional signings, and I look forward to helping out as much as possible. I need to continue to work hard and dedicate myself fully but it motivates me a lot being on a very aspiring team. Now I focus on performing well for the team before preparing myself for the next season”, concludes Jay McCarthy.
