Career

In May 2009, Bobridge signed with Garmin-Slipstream, with his contract starting on 1 January 2010 and had been contracted to race with the team until 2012. He left the team at the end of 2011, and joined GreenEDGE for the 2012 season.[2] Bobridge left Orica-GreenEDGE at the end of the 2012 season, and joined Blanco Pro Cycling on a two-year contract from the 2013 season onwards.[3]

In September 2009 he won the under-23 time trial at the UCI Road World Championships.[4] In January 2011 he became the Australian National Road Race Champion with a daring solo breakaway. On 2 February 2011, he set a new world record for the track 4k individual pursuit.[5] Bobridge was an Australian Institute of Sport scholarship holder.[6]

In November 2014 Bobridge was announced as part of the Team Budget Forklifts line-up for 2015 alongside fellow members of the Australian endurance track squad Luke Davison, Glenn O'Shea, Scott Sunderland and Mitchel Mulhearn, riding a domestic programme with a focus on achieving success on the track at the 2016 Summer Olympics.[7]

Bobridge won the opening stage of the 2015 Tour Down Under. He lost the overall lead on stage three but finished the race with the King of the Mountains jersey. On 31 January 2015 Bobridge attempted to break the world hour record in Melbourne. He rode 51.3 kilometres falling short of the record of 51.852 kilometres. However he did break Brad McGee's Australian national hour record of 50.3 kilometres which had stood since 2000.[8]
