Coming from a hugely successful track and road background, Leigh is a multiple World Champion on the track and has raced the past seven years on the roads of Europe for some of the world’s biggest teams- including ORICA-GreenEDGE, HTC-Columbia and IAM Cycling. In 2018, Leigh returns to domestic racing and the track, where he is a Commonwealth Games gold medal contender. Having previously contested the Commonwealth Games and all three Grand Tours (Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, Vuelta Espana) the 28 year old from Geelong will fill a vital role within the young ACA team, where he will mentor and share his wealth of professional experience with the young riders. As the team’s only rider outside the U23 category, Leigh will also utilise the professional development and mentoring opportunities offered by the ACA, as he starts the transition out of his professional road career.
