The Australian racing season has been underway for a number of weeks but it comes to a climax on Sunday with the WorldTour teams taking part in the People’s Choice Classic before the start of the Santos Tour Down Under on Tuesday.
It’s not an entirely antipodean affair with Marcel Kittel (Giant Alpecin), Ryder Hesjedal (Cannondale Garmin), Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) and Domenico Pozzovivo (AG2R) amongst the field.
