The Australian team will hand debuts to Simon Clarke, Mitch Docker, Travis Meyer and Daniel Teklehaimanot when the race starts at the weekend.

Alongside that inexperienced quartet, GreenEdge have also included seasoned riders of the ilk of Pieter Weening and Julian Dean as the team look to return to the early season form that saw Simon Gerrans win the Tour Down Under and the Milan San Remo.

"We've got a really good mixture of experience and knowledge, combined with some talented young riders,'' team manager Shayne Bannan told the Herald Sun.

"It will be about taking our opportunities, for guys like Cam Meyer it will be about being as consistent as possible but there's certainly no pressure on him for the GC. Pieter Weening will have a go in a few stages and so will Simon (Clarke) and Allan (Davis)."

Full squad: Simon Clarke, Allan Davis, Julian Dean, Mitch Docker, Cameron Meyer, Travis Meyer, Daniel Teklehaimanot, Wesley Sulzberger, Pieter Weening
