The BikeExchange team has announced the arrival of Lawson Craddock. The 29-year-old EF Education-Nippo driver has signed a two-year contract. The US national time trial should enhance the essence of the Australian team in the Big Tours and Classics.
Craddock is looking forward to racing for Team BikeExchange. “It all came very late for the 2022 season. The team has a long history and has done incredibly well. The names of the riders in the team speak for themselves. The culture surrounding the team is very important to me, especially in this sport, and with a family approach, I am sure That we can make the best performances together. It’s a big change for me after six years with my previous team, but I’m really excited to get to know my new teammates and the new environment.”
The 29-year-old time trial specialist, who started his career at Giant-Shimano in 2014, thinks the new environment will motivate him even more. “I will have new challenges and roles, and a different race calendar, so it will be refreshing for me and my motivation,” the time-tested US champion continues. “It would be great to have the American in the team. I already know some of the players, but of course I am looking forward to the first training camp and I want to start as best I can.”
Together we can help each other get better
Brent Copeland, team manager at Team BikeExchange, believes Craddock can bring the team a lot. “Hopefully we can support him as much as possible and let him play his cards in the race, because we really believe he has the talent to deliver some great results. Together we can help each other improve. He has gained a lot of experience with multiple WorldTeams and we can provide him with a platform to perform with the help of our experienced coaching staff. We have. We look forward to him joining us and seeing what he can achieve in 2022.”
According to Matt White, Principal Sports Director, Craddock has his best years ahead of him. “He brought with him a wealth of WorldTour experience. He is a world-class time-trial specialist and a man known for his commitment and rolling up his sleeves for his teammates. These are the qualities we have been looking for to strengthen the team for next season.”
