The team AG2R LA MONDIALE will officially starts its season this Sunday in Australia  with the People’s Choice Classic. Three other races will follow, two of which are in the World Tour calendar: the Santos Tour Down Under and the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Race.

It will be the first time in Australia for Pierre Latour and the French National ITT Champion is ready:

“I am happy to have the chance to race these Australian events for the first time.
I have been a professional since 2015, but
I have never had the opportunity to start a race so far away.
My winter has been productive, I have not been hobbled by any health glitches, and
I feel good on the bike.
This trip to Australia holds many interests for me. It will allow me to make my first efforts in a competition for the year, and will also present a good early test with the finish at the top of Willunga Hill (5th stage).
I don’t know what to expect at the Santos Tour Down Under, but we have a great team. We will be 25 days on site in Australia, which will also give us the chance to do some training sessions in excellent weather conditions.
After that, I will start my European campaign at the Faun Environment – Classic of the Ardèche Rhône Crussol.”
