Stefano Sirotti captures the action as the WorldTour teams go head-to-head for the first time this season

Mark Cavendish says German sprint king, Marcel Kittel, is the next big thing in sprinting – and as arguably the finest fast-man of his generation the Manx Missile knows what he’s talking about.

Kittel has already ‘dethroned’ Omega Pharma-Quickstep’s sprinting king on the Champs-Elysees, and the Giant-Shimano man has now set about another.

He beat three-time People’s Choice Classic winner Andre Greipel (Lotto-Belisol) in Adelaide’s traditional warm-up for the Tour Down Under this weekend.

Bike manufacturer, Giant, who took over from oil company, Argos, as joint-title sponsor earlier this month, have seen an immediate return on their investment.

And UCI WorldTour photographer Stefano Sirotti was on hand to catch all of the action from the season’s opening race on camera. See how it unfolded below.
