Richie Porte is set to lead Trek-Segafredo at the Tour Down Under. The rider looks forward to starting his season in his home country and with his new team.

Porte already knows what is like to win the Australian race, as he did it in 2017, and he can't wait to kick off his season in it. "It's always nice to start with a new team," Porte affirmed. "I haven't done a lot of time with the rest of the Trek-Segafredo boys but I know most of the guys and we have a good, solid team here so I think we can hit the ground running in this first race of the year.

"We have probably one of the strongest teams I've ever been in for stages like the last one, to Willunga Hill, with guys like Peter Stetina and Jarlinson Pantano. Besides them, we've also got guys like Koen de Kort, who's one of the most experienced and very good at the crosswinds, together with Kiel Reijnen and Ryan Mullen.

"So, yeah, we've got a well-balanced and solid team here and I hope it will continue like that for the rest of the year."
