After a thrilling Women’s Tour Down Under – a race many are saying was the most exciting and challenging in the history of the event – it’s now time for the world’s best men to shine. Some of the biggest names in the sport are in Adelaide for the first WorldTour race of the year.
A definite sprint stage, the Barossa Valley plays host to Tuesday’s racing with the fastest men on wheels preparing to battle for victory. Schwalbe Classic winner Caleb Ewan will be the man to beat, with Andre Greipell, Elia Viviani, Sam Bennett and Aussie track star Sam Welsford all in fast form and focused on the win.
Fans will have the opportunity to see the peloton pass five times throughout the day. Ziptrak Stage 1 will start and finish in Tanunda, with a large 30km circuit connecting Bethany, Angaston, Penrice and Nuriootpa.
