The Tour Down Under always feels a bit like the first day of school after summer break. Everyone’s excited to see one another again and catch up after a couple months away. And while a lot remains more or less the same, there are new faces and teams to learn, and others trying out new looks. Here are the WorldTeam bikes at the 2020 Tour Down Under.

World Champion Mads Pedersen got a custom painted Madone from the folks at Trek.
There’s no question about who this Trek Madone belongs to.
There are special graphics all over Pedersen’s Trek Madone.
Trek-Segafredo also had their standard team-paint Madones on hand in Australia.
The team also brought the lightweight Trek Émonda for uphill stages. Astana Pro Team
This season, Astana are riding a custom painted Wilier Triestina Zero SLR.
Extending through the integrated bar/stem, the paint is quite detailed. Just take a look at the stem and toptube.
These bikes are tricked out down to the oversize CeramicSpeed pulleys. Bahrain-McLaren
McLaren’s partnership with the team is in its early stages, but its Formula 1 heritage is already present in the orange paint of this Merida Scultura Disc.

We’re already fans of these bikes—and especially like that touch of light blue inside the fork. Bora-Hansgrohe

The Deceuninck—Quick-Step S-Works Venge also appears to be quite similar to last season’s.
One change for 2020 is the use of Wahoo computers.
