Ethan has already performed strongly at junior and U19 levels and presents as a strong and exciting prospect for the future. He is a talented climber with track pedigree and a cool head in races.
Begining a Bachelor of Environmental Policy and Management at Adelaide University in 2016, Ethan had a great start to the year with some solid results at U23 Nationals in 2017. From there he travelled to Spain to race in the Basque Region, before returning to Australia to chase his ambitions in some of the hillier races that Australia has to offer. He will be looking to work with the team’s other major climbing talent Rylan Dowdell to become a dangerous duo on the Australian calendar.
“I feel as if the team has bonded over the last couple years, not only the riders but also with supportive Aussie sponsors such as Pedalit. We also have some new riders who will provide a bit more of a punch towards the end of sprint stages and help to mature the team.”
