The Tour Down Under is the first race of the WorldTour season, so it's a great opportunity to see all the latest kit, tech and — of course — bikes for 2019.
Josh and Jack were on the scene to bring us all the news as they had it, which included a brand new unnamed climbing shoes from Specialized, the POC Ventral Air helmet, plus two new 12-speed groupsets from SRAM and Campagnolo.

So here they are, in all their glory: the best race bikes for 2019.
