Lucy Kennedy has extended her stay at Mitchelton-Scott for one more season after enjoying her best cycling year to date.

The Australian rider signed with the team in 2018 but her first year was plagued with injury and illness. The 2019 season has been a lot better for her and she took victories in Donostia San Sebastian Klasikoa, Durango-Durango Emakumeen Saria and the Women's Herald Sun Tour.

"I feel like this year I have made a lot of progress and I am satisfied with the season but I definitely still want more," said Kennedy. "I feel like I am in a good place to really step up again and help the team even more and start next year on a really positive note and try to keep it going.

"I think I have shown that when I am given the opportunities I can perform. Both roles are awesome, it is also an honour and a privilege to ride for riders like Annemiek and Amanda and I relish that role. Because of these riders we have in the team, it always feels like a special opportunity to be given a chance and I really appreciate that. I can't believe how strong the team will be next year, particularly in the hard hilly races. This year when I was put to work, it was often early so then maybe I wasn't there later in the race and I think next year we will be able to share that working role and have more numbers in the finals."
