Team Sky has announced its squads for the first two months of its debut ProTour season, covering the world from the Tour Down Under in Australia as its very first race, to the Tours of Qatar and Oman in the Middle East, and finishing with the Clasica di Almeria in Spain at the end of February.

The team will make its racing debut in the Cancer Council Helpline Classic, a city criterium in Adelaide, Australia, on January 17, followed by the ProTour-ranked Tour Down Under January 19-24. The seven-man squad will feature new signing Ben Swift.

That will be followed b the GP Cycliste la Marseillaise on January, with Peter Kennaugh riding his first professional race at the tender age of 20.
