2018 Tour Down Under winner Daryl Impey continues his season at the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race. Mitchelton-Scott has announced its roster for the next Australian race.

After a successful start of the season, the Australian team is ready to tackle the next challenge of the Calendar. Impey will be leading a team that includes the winner of the 2016 Paris-Roubaix Mathew Hayman and 2016 Il Lombardia champion Esteban Chaves.

Some Mitchelton-Scott riders will also take part in the Race Melbourne criterium next Thursday, and a part of them will only ride the pre-race like Caleb Ewan and Lucas Hamilton.

"I will definitely go into the Cadel Road Race with confidence," said Impey. "It was the race we really targeted and I am excited to go there, particularly after the great week we’ve had at Tour Down Under."

Chaves is thrilled about starting his season in Australia. "It’s always a special feeling to start a new season, no matter where it is," he commented. "But for me, it is extra special to start in Australia, it’s a country I love and where I have had a lot of different good experiences.

"I’ve seen that they have added an extra climb, actually it’s a hard climb. One more time can maybe make a difference, but it also depends on how the first 150kms will be. Most of the guys will come from the Tour Down Under so for me, it will be a good test to see where I am after pre-season."

Mitchelton-Scott's roster for the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race:

- Jack Bauer
- Esteban Chaves
- Mathew Hayman

- Daryl Impey
- Cameron Meyer
