|Testimonials - Who is this guy, Jack Bobridge?|
"For all you cycling fans - remember the name Jack Bobridge. His future's bright."
"I had heard how good he was, but I didn't know how aggressive he was. So, it's one thing to know or to hear about how strong somebody is – see their times on the track. Realise that obviously they have some potential. But then you see their true character when you're in the race. And, you know, he's 19 years old, racing against, well, you know, older guys. And he doesn't care. He lets it fly whenever he feels good, which is – which was very impressive. He's got a lot of talent, and we'll see."
''He's the real deal and deserves this result. I look forward to racing with him in the Tour Down Under. I would love to have a kid like Bobridge. He is complete and he is aggressive, which is really cool to see for a young guy – no fear. But he needs the right program to develop him, I think.''
Lance Armstrong commenting after his UCI Under 23 world road time trial win
"That ride and that time is an absolutely phenomenal achievement and I can only offer warm congratulations to Jack. He hasn't just beaten my superman mark he has absolutely smashed the conventional world record by nearly four seconds. The performance has a Beamon-esque feel about it. It's a real jaw dropper."
Chris Boardman on Jack beating his World 4000m individual pursuit record
"When we were training for the Beijing Olympics, he was tearing my legs off like no one has ever done before. I actually feel quite privileged to have witnessed the power he was putting down on those boards. He's got capability above and beyond anyone I've seen before."
Brad McGee on Jack beating his Australian 4000m individual pursuit record
"He's up there with the very best physiologically, but he's also strong mentally – just like Stuart O'Grady, Bradley McGee and Robbie McEwen. What sets those riders apart is the desire to hurt themselves to get a result. Jack has that attribute, too.
"He'll win stages of the Grand Tours and, make no mistake; he'll make a menace of himself in the peloton because that's his nature."
"He's a great talent for the future, and whoever gets him in his team is going to be very, very happy. I don't think he needs to impress anybody. He's definitely got what it takes to make it."

Brian Stephens, Jayco-AIS Road Team Director, following 2009 Tour of Japan stage win
"I'm certainly surprised (by form at the time) but when you have a bit of a deeper look at it, every time he trains, he really gives it everything. Just like he does when he races. I've started to think you don't put any limit on Jack, because he keeps surprising. The sky's the limit, really.
If there's one person who can handle it, is Jack. He's a pretty level-headed guy. He'd soak it up and take the good bits out of it and just move on. So I really don't think we'll have that much influence on him."
"It's fair to say if Jack starts a race, he'll give everyone on the team 100 per cent and he rarely fails."
