The 21-year-olds were previously linked with moves elsewhere; having been part of British Cycling’s Olympic Programme for three years, Team Sky appeared to be the likely destination for Simon, while Adam had a trial with FDJ with a view to signing for them in 2015.
However, Sky’s reported reluctance to sign neo-pros, along with an offer from Orica to sign both the twins, has resulted them signing for the Australian outfit.
