Mitchelton-Scott head sports director Matt White has said there has been "no harder Tour Down Under  course over the last 22 years" and knows that his rider, South African Daryl Impey, will have his work cut out trying to beat big rivals Richie Porte and Rohan Dennis if he is to take a third-straight overall victory at the Tour Down Under.

If stage 3 to Paracombe comes alive for the climbers then Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott), AG2R La Mondiale's Romain Bardet and Richie Porte (Trek-Segafredo) could distance the puncheur like Impey and set up for a battle royal on Willunga Hill on the final day.
