Mega Talent Liane Lippert Reviews Tour Down Under 2020
This interview is from the 24th of January, straight after the Tour Down Under had finished, where Liane and I discuss Sunweb's objective for the Tour Down Under, her expectations for the race, how things played out and the rest of her race program for 2020.
Liane Lippert just won the Cadel Evans Road Race, the first World Tour one day race of the season, in horrible conditions in Geelong. The young German rider for Sunweb had a breakout result in the Tour Down Under earlier in January, coming 2nd on GC, 2nd in the points classification and winning the mountains classification jersey. That was together with two podium results in stages 2 and 3. Lippert cemented that form and climbing ability with a massive attack during the Challambra climb in the Cadel Evans Road Race today, breaking away from Amanda Spratt, Ruth Winder and Wiles. I think Lippert is a big chance of causing some upsets in the Ardennes against Marianne Vos later in the year, as well as shaking things up in the European and World Championships and Olympic road race.
