“I like being in this team, and I didn’t want to go anywhere else,” said Mouris. “I’m obviously really pleased to sign this contract for another year.”
A solid and versatile rider, Mouris is reliable in the tough one-day Classics and contributes firepower in both the team time trial and sprint train.
The 33-year-old is expected to chase another podium performance at the upcoming world championships, and he added that the relaxed nature of the team mean that the decision to extend his deal was an easy one.
“I have spent a lot of time in Australia during the last decade, and being with Orice-GreenEDGE has given me an even better excuse to go there for my off-seasons,” said Mouris.
“I like the way Australians do things. It’s a nice balance between professionalism and creating a good, fun environment. That makes the team both focused and relaxed, and I feel at home here.”
Sports director Matt White acclaimed Mouris’s contribution to the team's engine room.
"I would say Jens is a rider that's able to provide crucial support in a number of different scenarios," White explained. "His strengths are on the flat roads, in the lead-out train and in the team time trial. With these varied skills, he is useful in so many races."
