Santos Tour Down Under

men|Start: 21 January|Finish: 26 January

Team Sunweb coach Luke Roberts: “The Tour Down Under has a good mix of opportunities for the sprinters, with the traditional Willunga Hill stage and the return of the finish in Paracombe the two stand-out GC days. We bring a young and diverse team to the race and look to take our chances throughout the race. With Chris [Hamilton] sidelined due to injury Jai, Robert and Michael will be our climbers that will be up there on the tougher stages where we hope to get a good GC result, particularly with Jai who is in good shape. In the flatter sprint stages there are a couple of good chances for Alberto but there are also some more difficult sprints which could suit Max’s abilities, with Asbjørn and Florian assisting them in the lead outs.”
