Elia Viviani and Arlenis Sierra have confirmed that they will return to Australia at the start of 2020 season to the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race.

The men's race took place for the first time in 2015 while the women's race had its first edition in 2016 and since then, no rider has won the race more than one time. This will be one of the first races of Viviani with his new team Cofidis and will go to defend the title he got in 2019.

"I have new motivation, a new team around me and I love this race," Viviani said. "I want to start next season the best way possible, that means I want to defend my title.

"I'm really happy to return to Geelong, I love the place. It's a good course where I can ride my bike and relax by the sea after training, and it's a super atmosphere all week - it's a bike festival."

The women's race will open the UCI Women's WorldTour in 2020 and it is the highlight of races in Australia. Sierra opened her 2019 with a victory at the race and went on her season to win the Giro Della Toscana, the Cuban National Road Race and the Pan American Road Race.
