Tour Down Under: First rider training gallery of 2016

Teams prepare for first WorldTour race of the season

The 2016 Tour Down Under starts in one week's time with a 130.3km opener from Prospect to Lyndoch and almost all 18 WorldTour teams are in Adelaide preparing for the race. With the majority of riders heading down under from the cold European winter on long haul flights to acclimatise to the hot conditions before the racing gets underway, teams such as Ag2r-La Mondiale, Astana, Cannondale and Giant-Alpecin have started their pre-race training rides.

The team's are based in the race village for the entirety of the Tour Down Under, just a short walk across the road from the race headquarters in the Hilton Hotel, where all training riders are likely start and finish.
