Since 2012, Orica has sponsored Australia's first professional team on the prestigious international cycling circuit. It is a true partnership of values that brings together world-class organisations that share an Australian heritage and successfully compete on the global stage.

The ORICA-AIS women's team finished the season ranked number one in the world.

The Reception will be hosted by Federal Minister for Health and Minister for Sport, Hon. Peter Dutton MP. Orica senior executive Gavin Jackman will be joined by Gerry Ryan OAM, owner of GreenEDGE Cycling and President of Cycling Australia.
