Thursday, 27th August 2020 – We are thrilled to announce that Jack Haig has signed with Team Bahrain McLaren on a three-year deal.
The 26-year-old Australian, who is renowned for his climbing ability, will play a key role in Team Bahrain McLaren’s rider line-up and future. Jack began his cycling journey on a mountain bike, winning the u23 National Champions, before turning his attention to road cycling. In 2016 he stepped up to the UCI WorldTour level making his debut at the Vuelta Espana the same year. Jack’s first big win came just one year later on stage 6 of the Tour of Pologne and last year he claimed 4th overall in Paris Nice.
Everyone at Team Bahrain McLaren is excited by the opportunity to help Jack realise his full potential as a world-class athlete. Jack is a talented rider with meticulous attention to the details that make the difference; what’s more, he’s team orientated, approachable and determined.
“I’m extremely excited to be joining Team Bahrain McLaren in 2021”, said Jack Haig. “Although the team is still somewhat in its infancy, the people within the organisation possess an extraordinary amount of drive, talent and expertise which make this such an exciting opportunity to be a part of”, Haig said.
Haig added, “After five wonderful years at Mitchelton Scott I am ready for this new challenge and contributing to the journey of Team Bahrain McLaren”.
Rod Ellingworth, Team Principal, said “We want every one of our riders to push themselves and find out how good they can be. In Jack’s case, he’s shown us his potential, so I see an exciting future ahead of him. But to achieve the sort of success we want for our riders, it’s down to every member of the team to pull in the same direction. That’s the sort of culture we have been building at Team Bahrain McLaren. I look forward to working with Jack and helping him achieve his personal goals.”
We welcome Jack’s arrival and look forward to building on the success the team has already delivered in its debut year.
