Team Sunweb is ready to start in the Tour Down Under with a strong roster that includes several options for the General Classification.

This is the first time of the formation in the Australian race and it will start in it with a roster that features several options for each stage. "We're excited to get our season underway at the Women's Tour Down Under; it is the first time that we will have raced here so we are all looking forward to it," said Sunweb's coach Nicolas Marche. "Before travelling to Australia we gathered at the Keep Challenging Center for some training in a climate control room to adapt to the heat we will face during the race, so we're prepared for the conditions as best as possible.

"The four stages offer opportunities for the sprinters and puncheurs, with stage three the toughest and the one that is expected to decide GC. We want to bring Leah, Liane and Juliette as fresh as possible into the finale of each stage so that we have multiple cards to play in the unpredictable stage finishes. Julia will be road captain and we'll also see British duo Pfeiffer and Anna start, with Anna making her debut for us."

Team Sunweb's line-up for the Santos Women's Tour Down Under (January 16-19):

Pfeiffer Georgi
Anna Henderson
Leah Kirchmann
Juliette Labous
Liane Lippert
Julia Soek
