2017 Tour of Southland stage winner Brad Evans has joined Mobius Future Racing for the 2018 season. The 25 year old will take on a road captain role with the team that will focus on the Australian NRS series as well as UCI races around the world.
This year has seen a bit of a year of transition for Brad Evans, after the Drapac Pro Cycling Team merged to become Cannondale-Drapac and Evans didn’t make the jump a period of limbo ensued. But the year has also seen Evans continue producing excellent results on an international scale with Drapac Pat’s Veg, with wins in the Tour of the Great South Coast in Australia, Le Race earlier in the year on our shores; as well as podium finishes in kermesses in Belgium.
Team Manager Tom Petty’s high regard for what Brad Evans brings to the team is clear. “There is a lot of shared excitement about working together,” Petty said in a team statement. “Being able to attract riders like Brad, and have him think highly of the way we approach races is a massive compliment.”
“For us, Brad is a great reflection of what we value in our riders. He is intelligent, he takes races on and rides with a lot of courage.”
Evans will move into the role of team captain with Mobius Future Racing and from that position will target UCI racing that will incorporate events such as the Tour of the Gila, as well as other prominent American events like the Redlands Bicycle Classic.
Speaking of his move to Mobius Future Racing, Brad said, “I look forward to passing on my knowledge and race craft in a team captain role, along with helping everyone reach their potential in the difficult overseas racing we will do.”
“I’m really happy to be signing to a team with a great group of guys ready to take the next step.”
