Welsh duo Geraint Thomas and Luke Rowe will be part of the Team Sky seven-man squad to the Tour Down Under.

The event will be held between January 19 and 26 and based in Adelaide.

The 2014 season-opening UCI WorldTour event has been a successful one for Team Sky in the past, with the team finishing on the overall podium on three of the last four occasions.

With third place overall, a solo stage victory and a spell in the Ochre jersey in 2013, Thomas returns to the race to lead the team alongside Tasmanian Richie Porte.

Porte begins his Giro d’Italia preparations at his home race, tackling the stages around Adelaide for the first time since 2011.

The event again forms part of the team’s build up for the prestigious Spring Classics, with success in Australia a key stepping stone for the riders.
