Tour Down Under: January 15 – 20
The first UCI World Tour race this year is the Tour Down Under, where the peloton rides through Australia. Although it’s the middle of winter in Europe, the sun is shining in Australia as summer is in full swing. For this stage race, the riders will face high temperatures and long asphalt roads. Most stages will be won by sprinters, but there are always a few climbing challenges to shake up the rankings.
