Michael
Rice

Michael comes to us with a wealth of experience from the HB Axeon development team in the US, having raced the world’s best with numerous UCI podiums and victories to his name despite being only 23. His strong outing at the 2020 Herald Sun Tour has made us excited to see what he can achieve as he balances Environmental Management at the University of the Sunshine Coast. The older brother of Matt Rice, the brother’s are excited to be reunited to race together this year.
