The new season is still a few weeks away but several teams have already announced their line-up for the first WorldTour event of 2015. Of course these rosters are subject to late changes as injuries and incidents can always alter original intentions. That said, as the teams make their lists of riders known, we’ll update this page for those interested in the 17th edition of the Santos Tour Down Under.

The teams are listed in alphabetical order below; select a team name to jump to that starting roster.

The dates for the 2015 Tour Down Under ‘festival of cycling’ in South Australia are: 17-25 January.*
