Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT -

MADS Ped­er­sen is the lat­est reign­ing world road cy­cling cham­pion to start his sea­son at Ade­laide’s Tour Down Un­der.

The Dan­ish ace will join Aus­tralian star Richie Porte in the Trek-Se­gafredo team for the Jan­uary 19-26 WorldTour sea­son opener.

While Trek-Se­gafredo are yet to an­nounce their line-up for the Aus­tralian race, Bel­gian news­pa­per Het Nieuws­blad said the 23-year-old would race in Ade­laide for the third­straight year.

Ped­er­sen had the big­gest win of his ca­reer in Septem­ber when he won world cham­pi­onship road race in York­shire, Eng­land.

Three-time world cham­pion Peter Sa­gan has also been a Tour Down Un­der reg­u­lar.
