The Santos Tour Down Under is Australia's WorldTour cycling event and the start of the international racing season. It's also where many of the world's biggest names can gauge their form early on.
Being the first race of the year, it's also the first chance we get to see the latest gear that the world's best riders will be racing during the season. Sometimes, however, it serves as a last hurrah for last year's kit before it's sold off to friends, family and the public once the racing has finished.
For 2019, the Adelaide-based stage race will run from the 10 to 20 January, with the Women's Tour Down Under race kicking things off from the 10 to 13 January.
