After having said goodbye to Australian racing through January, Richie Porte (Ineos Grenadiers) is looking ahead to Europe with the goal of going out with a win this season as he draws the curtain on a career regularly punctuated by trips to the top step to claim overall victory.

Porte has often started the year with an early-season WorldTour victory at Australia’s Tour Down Under but the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the cancellation of the international race again this season.
