The first WorldTour race of the year runs from January 19 - 24. Here's where you can watch the Tour Down Under

The 2016 Tour Down Under kicks off next week, with six stages in and around Adelaide. Starting on January 19, the race marks the beginning of the new UCI WorldTour season.

Last year’s race was won by Rohan Dennis (BMC) who beat Team Sky‘s Richie Porte by just two seconds. This year, the two Australians will line-up as teammates due to Porte’s transfer to BMC. This could give an interesting dynamic to the head of the race.

Below is the schedule of when and where you can catch live coverage and highlights of the racing. Check back to for updates and broadcast time changes.
