The opening event of the UCI WorldTour is the 2019 season kick off for Team Bahrain Merida. The race is based in Adelaide, Australia where the Tour starts from North Adelaide with 6 exciting stages from January 15th to 20th. As tradition, the criterium Down Under Classic was the curtain raiser of the Tour Down Under.
Good performance of our new riders and of the team in general: on the opening stage Phil Bauhaus sprints to 4th place and on the final exciting stage finishing atop the iconic Willunga Hill, our captain Rohan Dennis was 4th and stepped at the 5th place in overall.
