Brenton Jones

Brenton Jones is an Australian Professional Cyclist who has raced around the world in some of the biggest events that cycling has to offer.

Starting on the Mountain Bike and representing Australia as a Junior in the 2009 World Championships, Brenton then signed his first Professional Road contract in 2015 and has been riding and racing full-time in Europe since then.

Brenton was based in the UK and raced with Britain’s JLT Condor Cycling Team in 2017 where he notched an impressive 10 victories that season.

In 2018/2019, he raced for a French Professional Continental Team, Delko Marseille Province, where he raced the Paris-Roubaix twice and lived in France for 2 years.

One of Brenton’s career highlights was winning the Australian National Criterium Championship in 2019, a big goal that he’d been striving to win his whole career.

In 2020 Brenton rode for British Team Canyon DHB Soreen where he was based in the UK and raced in Europe before the COVID-19 Pandemic cut his racing short. He signed for Team Canyon DHB SunGod in 2021, but due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions during the year, decided to remain in Australia and race for Team Inform TMX Make for the reminder of the 2021 season.

A passionate and qualified Level 1 Cycling Coach, Brenton has successfully coached riders of all ages and abilities to improve their riding skills, confidence and become faster. The knowledge and experience he has gained from being a professional cyclist with years of racing under his belt is what helps Brenton to support his skills as a coach.
