Ben O’Connor had already shown his potential in prestigious u23 races in Europe, like the Tour de Savoie Mont Blanc and Tour de Alsace. 2017 was his first season at World Tour level and the young Australian certainly rose to the occasion.
Ben also secured his maiden professional win with a gutsy ride on stage 5 of the Tour of Austria. Having settled well into our African Team, learning from the likes of Serge Pauwels and Igor Anton, O’Connor is set for a successful 2018 season.
