"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. His leadership was a key part of the equation that saw teammates Simon Clarke and Mike Woods snag stage wins at the third Grand Tour of the season.
Mitch has two professional victories to his name, was part of ORICA-GreenEDGE’s team time trial victory on the opening stage of the 2014 Giro d’Italia, 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.”
