Analysis

The Tour Down Under will once again be the starting point of the men’s cycling season, and the Movistar Team will bring a quite youthful squad looking to offer its second unit some well deserved chances to score good results already in January. The Down Under Classic criterium (timetable – profile and map) acts again as prelude (Sunday 13) of the main, six-day event, which breaks its usual scheme and now puts the dual ascent of Willunga Hill (2.9km at 7%), the most traditional climb in this race, into the final stage (Sunday 20th).

Before Willunga, the peloton will again visit Corkscrew Road (2.5km at 9%), one of his most demanding climbs, at the end of stage four to Campbelltown on Friday 18th. Before that, the #TDU could well be a matter of bonuses, with clear sprint opportunities -stages one and five-; a hilltop finish in Angaston on stage two; and a pretty lumpy stage three, into a final circuit around Uraidla.
