Here's where to watch the Tour Down Under live on TV

The opening race of the WorldTour calendar starts on January 19 and runs for six stages. The Tour Down Under is the first chance for riders to test their form and see what they need to work on ahead of the Spring Classics.

For those of us desperate for the season to start again, the Tour Down Under provides the first chance to see transferred riders on their new teams and get a glimpse of everyone in some degree of new kit.
