Bushfires have put stage one of the Tour Down Under at threat but that certainly didn't spoil the mood or excitement at the race's teams' presentation in Adelaide, on Saturday evening. With the first WorldTour event of the season just days away, some of the best riders in the world donned their new 2014 racing kits as they were presented to a strong crowd of support in the city centre.
The race has one of the strongest line ups in years, including home favourites Cadel Evans, Richie Porte and Simon Gerrans, along with Marcel Kittel, Andre Greipel and Jens Voigt.
The Tour Down Under is proceeded by Sunday's People's Choice Classic, and you can follow the race, minute-by-minute live on Cyclingnews.com.
