Hoffman & Weening join Team BikeExchange-Jayco as sport directors for the 2022 season

Team BikeExchange, to be named Team BikeExchange-Jayco in 2022, is pleased to welcome Dutch duo Pieter Weening and Tristan Hoffman, as sport directors of the men’s WorldTour team for the upcoming 2022 season.
 
Having both raced professionally for more than 10 years, the team is confident that the pair will bring invaluable experience and expertise, that will be of great benefit to the Australian outfit as it begins its 11thseason in the UCI WorldTour peloton.
 
Pieter Weening, a former GreenEDGE Cycling rider, will be welcomed back amongst many familiar faces having ridden for the squad for four years, contributing to many of the team’s successes between 2012 and 2015, including his own memorable stage victory at the 2014 Giro d’Italia.
 
Alongside Weening, fellow compatriot Tristan Hoffman enjoyed a lengthy and successful 14-year professional cycling career, which included a second-place finish at the iconic Paris-Roubaix before he transitioned into the role of sport director, a role which he has been working in for more than a decade with various WorldTour teams.
 
Brent Copeland, Team BikeExchange General Manager:
We’re very pleased to welcome both Pieter and Tristan to the team for next season, Pieter was of course racing with GreenEDGE Cycling only six-years ago, so he is very familiar with how the team works and we believe he can add a lot to our sport director’s group. Tristan has a huge amount of experience, particularly in the Belgian races, where he was very successful himself as a rider. With this, he brings a great amount of knowledge to the team, particularly for our riders racing these Northern Classics. 
 
As we bring Dylan Groenewegen into the team, it is also fitting for us to include two new Dutch sport directors, we know both men really well and I think Pieter and Tristan’s characteristics really fit in with the team culture. So, we are thrilled to have them both onboard and working with us to achieve our big goals for the 2022 season.”
 
Pieter Weening
“I’m really looking forward to working with GreenEDGE Cycling again, for me it is a huge advantage that I know a lot of riders and a lot of staff members. It is a real honour for me to work for a great and big team like this. I’m really grateful they gave me this opportunity and I hope we can start soon with building and getting some results with all the members of the team, I am really looking forward to it.”
 
Tristan Hoffman
“I really like the culture of GreenEDGE Cycling and how they race, they always race aggressively and of course they want to win more and win big races and I hope I can help with that. I’ve been a sport director for 15 years, this year in 2021 I had a sort of sabbatical, but I really found out how much I love cycling. I have been part of the cycling world for 30-years and it has brought me a lot, it is my passion and I love being involved so I am very happy to be joining GreenEDGE Cycling. I’ve seen the team race for the past 10-years, I know the guys well and everybody has been really welcoming, so I can’t wait to get started.”
