Ethiopian national champion Tsgabu Grmay is making his debut with Lampre-Merida at the Tour Down Under having joined the Italian team after three season with MTN-Qhubeka. The 23-year-old climber is the only Ethiopian in the WorldTour peloton and along side Daryl Impey, the only Africans racing this January in Adelaide, but is excited by the start to the season at a new race with a new team.

“The racing is fast and nice,” Grmy told Cyclingnews of his impression of the Tour Down Under. “My preparation was good and my training was good as well.”

“It’s my first WorldTour race with the team and I like it,” he added. Grmy made his WorldTour debut back in 2013 at Il Lombardia registering a DNF.
