"My role within the team has challenged me not only physically but also mentally. As road captain, I make a commitment to get the best out of myself and my teammates in the races.”

Mitch Docker first pulled on #PinkArgyle in 2018 following six seasons racing for the GreenEDGE outfit, currently called Mitchelton-Scott. The Australian offers experience and expertise in the cobbled classics and the closing kilometers of fast finishes. During his maiden season with the team, he proved a natural at both motivating and providing feedback in pre-race meetings and post-race debriefs and was awarded the 2018 Vuelta a España road captain role. Since, his leadership has lead to numerous team victories and successes at some of cycling’s biggest races.

Mitch has two professional victories to his name  and has lent his legs to countless teammate’s victories.

Beyond the bike, Mitch is known for his unique sense of style, which currently includes a scrappy mullet and bushy mustache, and a distinctively Australian sense of humor, which is on display in his popular podcast called “Life in the Peloton.” Mitch also deserves credit as the rider that inspired our UNO tradition.
