Team Sunweb is ready to start its season at the Santos Tour Down Under with a roster that mixes riders that can fight for GC and sprinters that can get stage glory.

The formation is prepared to tackle the Australian race with a strong roster that will fight a good GC placement and at stage victories on the fast days. "The Tour Down Under has a good mix of opportunities for the sprinters, with the traditional Willunga Hill stage and the return of the finish in Paracombe the two stand-out GC days," explained coach Luke Roberts.

"We bring a young and diverse team to the race and look to take our chances throughout the race. With Chris (Hamilton) sidelined due to injury Jai, Robert and Michael will be our climbers that will be up there on the tougher stages where we hope to get a good GC result, particularly with Jai who is in good shape. In the flatter sprint stages there are a couple of good chances for Alberto but there are also some more difficult sprints which could suit Max's abilities, with Asbjorn and Florian assisting them in the lead outs."

Team Sunweb's roster for the Santos Tour Down Under (January 21-26):

Asbjorn Kragh Andersen
Alberto Dainese
Jai Hindley
Max Kanter
Robert Power
Michael Storer
Florian Stork
