Matthew Goss - Pro Team HTC-Highroad
As a passionate Tasmanian, it meant a lot to Matt Goss to be appointed Ambassador of the Pure Tasmania and Deloitte Cycling Team. Having grown up on the out-skirts of Launceston, Matt was first an AFL footballer before switching to cycling fulltime as a 16 year old.
Matt understands what it is takes to become a professional cyclist and through his experience hopes to make it a little easier for his fellow Tasmanian's to make it to the top.
