Movistar Team trains in Australia

Tour Down Under preview

The seven Blue riders get ready for the start of the 2018 UCI WorldTour, prefaced by the People’s Choice Classic criterium on Sunday.

Movistar Team arrived in South Australia on Monday after a two-day journey from the Iberian Peninsula. The Blues will be starting their men’s calendar in 2018 with the Tour Down Under, which kicks off on Sunday.

The video above shows scenes from one of the training riders the Telefónica-backed squad is completing in the area -with temperatures close to 40ºC-, looking to get better adapted to the heat and avoid jet-lag, before rolling their legs competitively at the People’s Choice Classic criterium, prior to the six-day official event.
