TOWARDS ZERO RACE MELBOURNE (CRT)

Team Sunweb coach Luke Roberts (AUS): “Continuing with the Australian races, on Thursday we have Race Melbourne, a criterium race around Melbourne’s Formula 1 circuit. With 22 laps around a 5.3km circuit, the race totals 116.6 kilometres and we can expect a really fast and furious show. We have our German sprinter Phil Bauhaus whom we’ll aim for a result with, and a strong team to support our goal.”

CADEL EVANS GREAT OCEAN ROAD RACE (WT)

Team Sunweb coach Luke Roberts (AUS): “We go to Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race as defending title holders with Nikias Arndt, who will be back again and have the opportunity to go for a result. Once again we can expect a decimated bunch sprint, despite some changes to the parcours. This year there will be one less climb on the lap, but an additional longer climb to contend with over the race’s 164 kilometres. Our expectations remain that things will come down to a small bunch sprint where we will aim for a result with Nikias.”
