Defending champion Daryl Impey has returned to the race in the hopes of doing the treble, and he’s joined by Mitchelton-Scott teammate Simon Yates. Richie Porte, winner at Willunga the past six years, leads Trek-Segafredo, while Pavel Sivakov and Rohan Dennis lead Team Ineos.
Diego Ulissi (UAE Team Emirates), Romain Bardet (AG2R La Mondiale) and Luis León Sánchez (Astana) are among other GC names to watch, while sprint contenders include Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal), Sam Bennett (Deceuninck-QuickStep) and Elia Viviani (Cofidis)
Key general classification stages for the men include stage 2 to Stirling, with its uphill finish, an even stiffer uphill finish in Paracombe on stage 3, and then the final finish atop Willunga Hill. There’s 921.2km of racing and more than 12,000m of climbing on the menu, but the race typically comes down to mere seconds.
