Cycling: Jay Vine profile

Jay Vine is yet another strong Australian cyclist that is battling it out with the very best in the world in the biggest races.

Australia are blessed to have some strong general classification riders, including Jai Hindley and Ben O’Connor and Vine is up there with them.

Vine now rides for one of the strongest teams in cycling, UAE Team Emirates, and he looks certain to add some more big wins to an already impressive CV.

Here is all you need to know about the 27-year-old Queenslander.

Professional wins

Vine’s most successful spell of his career so far came while he was with Alpecin-Fenix, as they were known then.

The Aussie rode his first grand tour with them in 2022 at the Vuelta Espana, and announced himself to the world of cycling with two stage wins.

Vine picked up his first professional win when taking stage six at the Vuelta, ahead of superstars Remco Evenepoel and Enric Mass.

Then two days later, he showed it was no fluke, when winning stage 8, which was was a mountain-top finish.

After signing with UAE Team Emirates, he got 2023 off to a perfect start with a win in his homeland of Australia.

Vine took out the Tour Down Under, while also in 2023 he won the time trial at the National Road Champions and the Mountains Classification at the Tour of Turkey.

What does the future hold of Jay Vine?

Again the future looks very bright for Vine, who at 27, still has some of his best years ahead of him.

Vine has all the makings of a great general classification rider, as not only is he very strong in the mountains, he is also a great time trialist.

Looking at the three grand tours, it is tough to predict where Vine will end up in 2024.

Considering that Team UAE Emirates have superstars like Tadej Pogacar and Adam Yates in their ranks, it is hard to see Vine getting outright leadership in a grand tour.

That said, the 2024 Giro d’Italia will suit him down to the ground as it has three time trials in 2024, totalling 70kms.

Vine also thrives in the high mountains and looks sure to go to the Tour de France as part of a strong team that will support Pogacar.

But it is not all about the grand tours and there will be a large amount of races that Vine can target in 2024.

As always staying fit, healthy and avoiding crashes will be key to his success. Vine has had a fair bit of bad luck on that front and will be hoping for better in the year ahead.
