Cycling: Nick Schultz profile

Nick Schultz is an Australian road cyclist who currently races for UCI World Tour team Israel-Premier Tech.

The 29-year-old’s speciality is climbing and he has been part of the Israel-Premier Tech team that competed in the last two editions of the Tour de France.

Schultz is a general classification rider and although a top 10 finish at a grand tour has so far eluded him, that will be the goal moving forward.

Professional career so far

Schultz had a solid start to his career as an amateur with a number of top 10 finishes, before turning professional in 2016.

After one season with SEG Racing Academy, Schultz joined Caja Rural-Seguros and picked up his best result in his career up to that point when finishing seventh overall at the Tour of Norway.

Schultz had to wait until 2019 before picking up the first win of his professional career, while racing for the Australian team Mitchelton-Scott.

It came at the Herald Sun Tour when he won Stage 4 of the race and went on to finish second overall in the general classification.

2019 was a good year for the Queenslander as he also finished third overall at the Settimana Internazionale di Coppi e Bartali, which is a five-day stage race in Italy.

The following year he again came third at the Settimana Internazionale di Coppi e Bartali and followed that up with a fourth-place finish at the Czech Cycling Tour.

It was at that race where Schultz picked up his second pro win, when taking out Stage 2. That same year he also finished 10th at the Tour of the Alps.

After three seasons with Mitchelton-Scott, Schultz made the switch to Israel-Premier Tech, signing a three-year deal in 2023.

It was a solid enough year for Schultz when earning a 10th-place finish at Gran Piemonte, but the highlight came at the Tour de France.

Schultz came very close to taking a stage win at the biggest race of all, but had to settle for second place.

It was still a massive confidence boost for the Aussie, who went on to finish 39th on the general classification.

What does the future hold?

Schultz’s future looks secure for now as he still has at least two more seasons on the books of Israel-Premier Tech.

He looks set to continue riding the Tour de France in support of Israel-Premier Tech’s team leaders, which means he should also get the opportunity to stage hunt.

The Australian’s best opportunity to claim a win will come from getting into a break on a mountainous stage and seeing off the competition.

There could also be the option of racing in the Giro d’Italia or Vuelta a Espana.

Schultz will also be looking for more top-10 finishes in some of the many stage races on the World Tour calendar.
