Team BikeExchange has announced the signing of former U23 Swiss Time Trial champion Alexandre Balmer.

The 21-year-old signed a two-year contract with the Australian team. The rider has already shown his talents in other cycling disciplines by winning the gold medal at junior level at the Cross-Country MTB World Championships and the European MTB Championships in 2018.

"I have always watched the Tour de Romandie, which passes in front of my house and how my national coach, Michael Albasini, used to win stages of the race regularly," said Balmer. "Now I am starting to realise that I will have my place in the big bus that I was fascinated by when I was younger.

"Team BikeExchange was also a part of the integration of a mountain biker (Nino Schurter) into road cycling years ago and I'm proud to be able to do the same, coming from a mountain biking background. Our first goal is to continue my development and as soon as possible, to reach the level of the best in the world on the road. I know that the team will be there to support me with road cycling and also on the project of the Olympic Games in the mountain bike discipline."
