Santos Tour Down Under

men|Start: 15 January|Finish: 20 January

Luke Roberts – Team Sunweb coach

“Next Tuesday we start stage one of the 2019 Santos Tour Down Under. This year’s edition has been spiced up a bit with Willunga hill moving to the final day, the corkscrew final has also returned to the race as well as a new lap for stage three over some very difficult terrain. There will be a few opportunities for Max Walscheid in the sprints, with young Max Kanter and Cees Bol in support, both looking to show the themselves in their WorldTour debuts. Johannes Fröhlinger will bring plenty of experience as road captain and then we have multiple cards to play for the GC with our three Aussies Chris Hamilton, Michael Storer and Jai Hindley. All three are looking to be in very good shape at the start of the season.”
