It is only March, but Kaden Groves‘ close-run third place on stage 2 of Tirreno-Adriatico means the BikeExchange-Jayco rider has already spent as much time on the podium this season as he did last year. Plus, this time, the growing speed and consistency netted the Australian his first top-three finish at a WorldTour level race.

The development of Groves into a sprinter that can make a mark at the front of top-tier races is part of a broader growth in sprint strength at the Australian-based squad. BikeExchange-Jayco secured the return of Michael Matthews last season and this year added Dylan Groenewegen, who quickly delivered the team’s first victories of the season at the Saudi Tour.
