Matthew Dinham career so far

Matthew Dinham is still in the very early stages of his career and he only turned pro in 2019 when joining the Australian road racing team St George Continental Cycling Team.

He spent one season with them before switching to the Australian UCI Continental cycling team Team BridgeLane in 2020.

It was while with Team BridgeLane that Dinham really started to show promise, with a number of impressive performances.

Dinham had a total of 13 top-10 finishes with the team, with the highlight probably being a second-place finish in the road race at the National Under-23 Championships in 2022.

That kind of impressive form with Team Bridgelane resulted in UCI World Tour team Team-DSM snapping him up from the start of the 2023 season.

Dinham has moved to another level since the move and had a great season which saw him debut at the Tour de France.

He made it to Paris, which is an achievement in itself for a rider competing in his first Tour de France, finishing 58th overall.

But the highlight of the year has to be finishing seventh in the road race at the UCI World Championships in Glasgow.

On a brutal course, Dinham was in the battle at the death, mixing it with the likes of eventual winner Mathieu van der Poel.

What does the future hold?

The future looks to be very bright for Matthew Dinham and he will take a heap of confidence from that performance at the World Championships.

Dinham finished 2023 riding in the Italian Autumn classics, including the fifth monument of the season, Il Lombardia.

It would suggest that Dinham is very much a one-day specialist and that is where he can thrive in 2024.

The one-day classics could be the target for him, but his 6th place finish at the Artic Race of Norway also shows he can compete as a General Classification rider.

A return to the Tour de France in 2024 or one of the other grand tours, could also be on the cards for the young Aussie.
