Riders head out for Tour Down Under training rides - Gallery

Sagan, Ewan and more prepare for 2017 WorldTour opener in Australia

With 18 of the 19 teams that will contest the 2017 Tour Down Under having now confirmed seven-man squads, riders are heading out into the surrounds of Adelaide for important training rides and course recon ahead of the January 17-22 WorldTour stage race.

World Champion Peter Sagan is one of those riders to head out as he also familiarises himself with his new Bora-Hansgrohe teammates. Orica-Scott fastman Caleb Ewan has also been out training, showing off his new Scott Foil for 2017. As has AG2R-La Mondiale's Domenico Pozzovivo on his new Factor team bike.

Dimension Data, LottoNL-Jumbo, Katusha-Alpecin and Team Sunweb have also been spotted heading out from the race headquarters in Victoria Square.

Along with some of the first photographs of the riders in new kits, the early-Tour Down Under training rides provide the first glimpse as team bikes for the year ahead.
